KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Karlsruhe

  • If you plan to visit Karlsruhe, consider getting Karlsruhe car rentals. With numerous iconic landmarks and hidden gems, you’ll never go wrong if you have a rental car. In addition to convenience and flexibility, car rentals in Karlsruhe guarantee comfort and peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to rely on public transportation, which is often noisy, crowded, and slow-moving over long distances. You will quickly arrive at destinations within the city and without. Some places worth visiting with your car rentals in Karlsruhe include Turmberg, the State Museum of Baden, and Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe. You can also reconnect with nature at Zoologica Gardens Karlsruhe.
  • Karlsruhe Söllingen Airport (FKB) is about 40 km (about 25 miles) from the city center. If you’re flying in to visit the city, you will likely be landing at FKB airport. Consider getting your Karlsruhe car rentals at the airport so you can start adventuring around the city immediately after landing. Many car-rental agencies operate on-site at the airport, including SIXT, Europcar, Enterprise, Hertz, Thrift, Avis, and BUCHBINDER. The rental desks can be found at the designated Baden Airpark parking. You can access the location by heading to the main Arrivals zone. Follow the signs that say “Car Rental”.
  • Driving your car rentals in Karlsruhe is a nice experience, thanks to courteous drivers and well-paved, consistently marked, and well-maintained roads. Drivers generally abide by the traffic regulations. Still, you should be mindful of some details that’ll impact your driving experience. Keep in mind that the city has a number of intersections and roundabouts; drive cautiously when approaching them. Although jaywalking is not too common in the city, you shouldn’t leave things to chance. Drive carefully when you’re near populated areas, where you’ll find more pedestrian crosswalks.
  • Significant cities in Germany are known for their heavy traffic during peak travel hours, and Karlsruhe is no exception. The great majority of the city’s residents take their own vehicles to work each day, and you’ll see some motorcycles on the roads also. The city experiences rush hour from about 6:30 am to 9:30 am and from 3 pm to 7 pm. Plan to avoid driving your car rentals in Karlsruhe during these hours.

We only stopped by to inquire about taking our car out of Germany. They explained and handled it quickly. This could have been handled at Frankfurt airport easily if the attendant there was as easy to deal with.

Pick up and drop off was easy. I did not like that I received the car with a quarter of petrol and was supposed to return it like that which is impossible. So I mentioned it at the drop off and Youssef Amakran was super helpful and refunded me € 20 for the petrol.
