There's a range of car models available for hire in Dresden, each with their own perks. For city driving and shorter trips, compact and economy cars are ideal with their fuel efficiency and easy maneuverability on tight city roads. For long hauls into the countryside or family holidays, a comfy SUV is recommended for a more spacious drive.

Driving Rules

Unlike in the UK, vehicles in Germany drive on the right-hand side of the road. Additionally, the use of seat belts is obligatory for all passengers, and it's illegal to use a handheld mobile while driving. Note that speed limits usually stand at 50km/h in city areas and up to 130km/h on autobahns.

Exploring Dresden

Dresden is often referred to as the "Jewel Box", and not without reason. This city is full of attractions such as the stunning Zwinger Palace and the historically rich Semperoper. With long-stretched parks, striking architecture, and picturesque river views, Dresden is truly a delight.

Neighbouring Towns and Cities

With a hired car, you can expand your sightseeing radar and visit neighbouring regions. How about a quick trip to Leipzig or Meissen? These cities offer unique charm, remarkable history and exquisite local dishes.

Parking in Dresden

Central Dresden provides many underground car parks, and street parking is usually marked by signs. It's metered, so remember to return before your time runs out to avoid fines.

Climate & Best Times to Visit

Dresden generally has a temperate climate. Still, the best period to visit is between May and October when you can fully enjoy outdoor activities. December is also fantastic for Christmas markets.


In Germany, the official currency is the Euro (€). Many shops and restaurants also accept card payments, but it’s good to have some cash handy for small purchases or in case of emergency.

Seasonal Events in Dresden

December in Dresden brings a magical Christmas Market in the historic Old Town. However, if you're traveling outside the winter period, be sure to check out the Dresden Music Festival or the International Dixieland Festival.

“Unfortunately, my flight was delayed, so I had to pay an additional fee. Despite everything, the handover as well as the return of the rental car went smoothly.”

Rating of Alexander S.

“Despite the late pickup, we were received very friendly by a nice employee. She explained to us in detail the entire process until the return of the rental car. In addition, she offered us a car of a higher category with navigation for a small extra charge, which we gratefully accepted. The return of the vehicle went smoothly even outside the opening hours.”
