Cologne Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Located in the western portion of Germany and split right down the middle by the winding Rhine River, ancient Cologne is a bustling and majestic city. Embracing both its history and its future, it is home to one of Europe's grand Gothic cathedrals as well as mammoth modern skyscrapers reaching for the heavens. A wealth of cultural riches can be found in and around the area, so a car rental in Cologne is a necessity when exploring the beautiful North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany.

Driving in and Around Cologne

Once you've landed at the airport, there are many options for Cologne rental cars to fit your taste and budget, and it's only a nine-mile drive to the city center. There are plenty of amazing hotels in Cologne that you can make your headquarters, and from there you can explore the city and beyond. Fans of Ludwig van Beethoven and all things high culture will want to visit nearby Bonn. Not only can you walk in the steps of the great classical composer, but there is more art, history, and music than you can shake a stick at.

One of Germany's most famous exports is beer, and if you're a fan of this refreshing, sudsy beverage, then drive your Cologne car rental north to Dusseldorf, where the beer flows like water. The Old Town, or Alstadt, is jokingly referred to as Germany's longest bar, with plenty of pubs and beer gardens to satisfy your thirst while taking in the uniquely German culture.
