Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at the airport and start exploring Frankfurt right away! Frankfurt may be the financial capital of Europe, but this city offers so much more. Head to the center to check out impressive churches and cathedrals, historic watchtowers, and museums—the nature museum is a must see.

Leave your rental close to Zeil Street to explore the city’s main shopping district, go to local restaurants for some traditional Hessen cuisine and the area’s famous apple cider, or drive your rental car outside of Frankfurt to explore the beautiful forests and hills around Main River.

Frankfurt is fascinating, but a lot of other great destinations are also close by. You can travel to Berlin and Hamburg, head south to the majestic Bavarian Alps, or cross national borders and reach Amsterdam, Paris, or Prague in three to six hours.
