Hertz at Berlin Schoenefeld Airport

Legacy and history can be found around every corner of Germany’s capital city. But, far from the divided city it once was, Berlin is today a progressive, creative, ever-changing and hugely popular destination.

Our pick-up point at Berlin Schoenefeld Airport is one of numerous across the city, located conveniently at one of the main gateways to Berlin. We’re open seven days a week, so you can collect your vehicle and get on the open road as soon as you arrive.

With so much to see and do in this vibrant city, you’ll want to get started right away. To speed up the process, you can browse our cars online and pay in advance. There are no hidden extras to pay and we also offer a best price guarantee so, if you find Hertz car rental in Berlin cheaper, we’ll refund the difference.

Driving in and around Berlin

Berlin Schoenefeld Airport is conveniently located on the outskirts of the city, just a 35-minute drive from the center. Germany’s capital city is great to drive through; it’s well signposted, with views of historical buildings and modern architecture to admire as you make your way through the network of roads.

There are plenty of places to park in Berlin, so it’s straightforward to hop out of the car and get a closer look at some of its most famous landmarks. This city is popular with cyclists; they usually tend to stick to the cycleway but it’s worth being aware of as you drive around. Like most of Europe, Germans drive on the right-hand side of the road. If you go further afield, it’s recommended that you keep your speed around 80 mph on Germany’s famed autobahns, and in built-up areas limits around 30 mph are in force.

When you leave the airport, the A113 will take you to the very heart of Berlin, but you’re also in a fantastic position to explore more of the surrounding Brandenburg region if you want to see more than the capital. Join the 96a, for example, followed by the L40 and in just over half an hour you’ll arrive in Potsdam. The city is located on the Havel River, just south-west of central Berlin. The beautiful gardens and palaces, formerly the seat of the Prussian royal lineage, have deservedly earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. 

Alternatively, take the A12 and you can drive over the bridge at Frankfurt an der Oder that crosses the Oder and head into Poland for a road trip. It’s also just under two hours via the A13 to Dresden, or via the A9, to Leipzig, the largest cities in the state of Saxony.

A quick guide to Berlin

Colorful graffiti adorns what remains of the Berlin Wall, a constant reminder that this city was once divided into east and west. A trip to Berlin might well open your eyes to its turbulent past in a way that simply reading about it never could but, at the same time, you’re guaranteed to discover a freewheeling spirit and laidback lifestyle that shows just how far this hip city has come.

A step back in time

Many of Berlin’s cultural and historical sights are found in central Mitte.See Brandenburg Gate, an imposing symbol of more than 200 years of history. You should also visit Checkpoint Charlie, the most famous former crossing point between East and West Germany. It remains frozen in time; piles of sandbags outside the checkpoint booth, an array of Cold War-era memorabilia and a barrier standing upright as a reminder of what it looked like on the edge of the Iron Curtain. Today, it’s a talking point and a great photo opportunity.

Art on the street

Nowhere else in the city shows Berlin’s transformation since the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 more poignantly than the East Side Gallery in Friedrichshain. At 1,316 meters long, it’s the longest open-air gallery in the world, and it incorporates remaining sections of the wall.

The story behind it is remarkable: When the Berlin Wall was torn down, artists started to paint it - adorning the stones with color, passion and humor. In fact, 118 artists from 21 countries contributed and it’s been awarded protected memorial status. Paintings are regularly restored to maintain condition.

The best-known image is Dmitri Vrubel’s Fraternal Kiss, immortalizing the embrace between Soviet president Leonid Brezhnev and East Germany leader Erich Honecker in 1979 – a must-see for street art enthusiasts.

Swim in an aircraft hangar

For a very different experience, head 35 miles outside Berlin to Halbe where you’ll find an abandoned aircraft hangar. Inside? Europe’s biggest water park. Tropical Islands Resort is large enough to fit eight soccer pitches inside it and tall enough to house the Statue of Liberty. It’s home to Germany’s highest water slide, as well as seven saunas and steam baths across a huge spa complex – perfect to help you de-stress.

Around the blue lagoons and waterfalls are indoor beaches and the world’s largest indoor rainforest, complete with emerald turtles, peacocks and macaws hiding in the tangle of mangrove swamps. Warm temperatures, exhilarating water rides and relaxing saunas - this is a slice of the tropics in the middle of Europe.

Take a trip to Spreewald

A short way on from Tropical Islands you’ll find Spreewald, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. This is one of Germany’s most beautiful natural areas with a network of lakes and canals that weave through the forest.

The best way to see these is by hiring a canoe or kayak, finding a walking trail to hike or hop on a bike. You also have the option to ride a kahn; a shallow punt boat that is steered by a ferryman.

With car rental from Berlin Schoenefeld Airport you can unlock plenty of Berlin’s seemingly endless attractions and delve into the surrounding area too, all at your own pace.
