Car hire in Hamburg
Hiring a car in Hamburg
Hamburg has always been somewhat in the shadow of Munich and Berlin when it comes to attracting tourists, but the way that the city has changed over the last few years has meant it becoming more of an attraction than ever before, and definitely somewhere that's well worth heading to at any time of year for anyone into shopping, nightclubs, cultural hotspots and a general fast pace of life.
The metropolis that is Hamburg is mostly brought to life by the fact it is home to more than 17,000 students, one of the biggest populations in Europe. This helps to give it that diverse feel as a city that makes it unique, and really sets it up as something of a party town. But that's not all Hamburg has to offer. Even if you're looking for some retail therapy or the chance to soak up some genuine German culture, you're sure to find just what you're after in Hamburg.
What you need to know
In the summer months, Hamburg is a pleasant place to be, and many of the younger people living here will choose to walk or cycle around the centre of the city. However, if you want to see everything on offer, it's always best to hire a car. This is particularly advisable in winter, when the warm summer temperatures really give way quickly, replaced by sub zero temperatures that will make you glad of the warm comfort of a hired car.
