Car Hire Heidelberg
Heidelberg is an amazing city, full of history, culture and a lively student atmosphere, that’s yours for the exploring with a car hire! Visit the Heidelberg Castle, the beautiful old building that looms over the old town, walk around the grounds and gardens, and enjoy the view of the city from the top. The view from the Philosophenweg is spectacular as well, and well worth the steep climb up to the gardens. Enjoy the ‘real’ German life at one of the town markets, and taste some local produce.
With a hire car, day trips can be easily made to the Heidelberg castle, the vineyards of the Necker Valley or just drive around and enjoy the beautiful rural surroundings. Drive your hire car to the lovely town of Heiligenberg and see the Thingstatte, a now overgrown open air amphitheatre, and ruins of an old monastery that was built in the 9th century. Head out in your car hire to the town of Schwetzingen and explore its extensive castle gardens. Drive out to Weinheim through picturesque vineyards and villages. There is something for everyone in Heidelberg, and you’ll have the freedom to get around to see it all with your car hire from DriveAway.
