In the southwest of Germany is the city of Freiburg. The Dreisam River runs through the city and is much visited as it is close to the Black Forest and the Rhine Valley. Like most of Germany, it is a historic city famous for its university and cathedral. The best way to explore the Rhine Valley and Black Forest is by car rental in Freiburg.
The city is most famous for its extremely old university and cathedral. The cathedral (Freiburg Munster) is a tall and very imposing building which has stood for hundreds of years. Upon entering, you will be taken aback by the beautiful interior, and feel as though you have been taken back through time. You can also climb the church's spire for city views.
The Augustiner Museum is a museum of holy art and relics. It is definitely worth visiting and has acquired the hush of a church. For panoramic views of the city and great photo opportunities, go up to the Schlossberg Lookout Tower, which is in the centre of the city on the site of a medieval hill fort.
For traditional shopping and entertainment, visit the Munsterplatz, where the cathedral is, for the daily farmer's market. If you are something of a shopaholic, it may be a good idea to use the car hire in Freiburg to transport your purchases back to the hotel. You may be lucky enough to witness the Freiburg Carnival when you are visiting, when local people dress in traditional clothes and there is a parade and dancing.
The Black Forest is famous worldwide, mainly for its delicious Black Forest Gateaux. Cheap car hire in Freiburg makes it easy to get to the Black Forest and explore the unique culture here. Different dialects are spoken here, and wood-carving is a traditional craft in the area.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
