Hertz in Frankfurt

One of Germany’s most modern cities, Frankfurt sits in Hesse state, and its status as a commercial hub delivers a surprising fact: its airport is the busiest in Germany, and the third busiest in Europe.

Part of that is because of its large number of trade fairs, but it’s a great city for tourists too, with wonderful places to visit and things to see and do, as well as plenty of fantastic attractions nearby.

Frankfurt is a charming old city with excellent museums, and discovering it and the surrounding area in your rental car is a smart choice.

We have several pick-up locations in the city, including at Frankfurt Rhein-Main Airport, and a fine collection of cars, so you can choose the one that’s right for your visit.

Take advantage of paying in advance so you can collect and go, and make the most of your time in ‘Mainhattan’ – Frankfurt’s business district.

Driving in and around Frankfurt

West Germany is a great place to drive around. Its well-connected autobahns are spacious and efficient, and following its network of local roads let you get out and see the real Germany. You’ll have the freedom to do all of this in your rental car.

You can download a useful guide to driving in Germany that will help with road signs, speed limits, seatbelt laws and more.

Parking zones in the center of Frankfurt are color-coded, and street parking has to be paid for all week in the inner city. The most affordable long-term parking, if your hotel doesn’t have its own lot or garage, is in larger private parking lots.

As a prosperous, affluent city, Frankfurt is very well-connected. All autobahns in Germany are toll-free and from here you can use them to head north on the A5 to Hamburg and Hanover, south on the A5 and then the A67 to Basle.

For Cologne in the west, take the A3, while Munich and south-east lie along the A3 in the opposite direction.

A popular nearby drive is to Karlsruhe on the A5, home to the ZKM Centre for Art and Media. A unique museum combined with workshops and institutes, it’s a forward-looking place with lots of interactivity, and offers a real change of pace.

Head out to the numerous natural parks, many of which are protected. Taunus Hills Nature Park lies just beyond the boundaries of the city, easily reached in your rental, and its low peaks are home to geothermal springs and popular with walkers.


 

 

A quick guide to Frankfurt

The Frankfurt cityscape at night

Large parts of Frankfurt were damaged during World War Two but, miraculously, many of its most impressive buildings survived – if not intact, then at least still standing.

Many have been renovated and restored to their former glory in recent years, so now’s a great time to appreciate its architecture.

A botanical bonus

A short drive from the city’s heart, the Palmengarten is a botanical garden first opened in 1871. It sustained considerable damage during World War Two, but was expanded, reconstructed and re-opened properly in 1992.

It covers 50 acres and combines the perfect outdoor wandering space with conservatories, rare plant species and summer concerts.

Into the Altstadt

The Altstadt – or ‘Old City’ – is a quaint contrast to the skyscrapers and hard-headed world of finance in the newer Frankfurt. Parts of it feel like a small village, with medieval buildings and well-preserved market squares.

The 18th century St. Paul’s Church is a few steps away from the graceful Romerberg Square – a place of commerce since the 12th century, boasting many an Instagrammable building.

Other lovingly maintained highlights include the 15th century Old Nicholas Church, the 13th century Kaiserdom (another building restored after the war, with 324 steps to the top of its tower) and the 16th century Fountain of Justice.

Frankfurt’s Historical Museum is the perfect place to learn about the city’s past, while the Alte Oper – or ‘Old Opera House’ – is an internationally renowned home of music. This Italian Renaissance-inspired construction was given a facelift in the 1970s after being so badly damaged during the war, and has now been fully restored – with particular highlights including its stunning impressive statues of Mozart and Goethe, and its incredible acoustics.

The city’s favorite son 

The district of Innenstadt is where you can find Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s former humble home. The writer lived there in the late 18th century. Born in Frankfurt, Goethe became famous in his youth after the publication of The Sorrows of Young Werther, which he wrote in the same house.

 He also began work on his masterpiece, Faust, while living in Frankfurt, basing the characters on people he knew. The house now incorporates a museum and is a place of pilgrimage for followers of one of Germany’s greatest writers.

You can take another peek into Goethe’s world close by, in the foundations of the Jewish ghetto that have been excavated in recent years. The Judengasse stood from 1462 to 1811, and the remains were found in 1977. For a more complete picture of Jewish life in the city, you can visit the Jewish Cemetery, which has stood since the 12th century.

There’s much more to Frankfurt – including the Stadel Museum with its fine collection including Picasso, Francis Bacon, Rembrandt, Renoir and Rubens, and the strikingly modern Commerzbank headquarters built by Sir Norman Foster.

You can’t leave without tucking into some German classics, so reserve a table at Zu Den 12 Aposteln on Rosenbergstrasse and sample schnitzel or herring.

That’s the great thing about Frankfurt – new towers may stretch toward the sky, but the old classics are never forgotten. Car rental in Frankfurt will help you to enjoy the best of the new and the old Germany.
