Paderborn Guide

Paderborn is a quaint university city in northwestern Germany, in the state of North Rhine Westphalia. Like many German cities, Paderborn owes its existence and fame to water &endash; namely spring water. The Pader, which is only four kilometres long and the shortest river in Germany, springs up under the cathedral, with a total of 200 separate springs! The city is steeped in history and in the city centre alone you will find 20 historic buildings to explore.

Of the many historic buildings the city boasts, the Rathaus, town hall, is probably most impressive. Built in 1613, the building’s three-tiered gable façade is an excellent example of the Weser Renaissance period. The Kaiserpfalz, where in 777 Karl the Great founded Paderborn, and the ruins of the old walls that originally surrounded the city can also be seen. In the last week of July, Paderborn celebrates the Libori Festival. The city is beautifully decorated and lots of food and shopping stalls are set up &endash; fun for everyone!

Home to the Nixdorf computer company, Paderborn boasts the supposedly largest computer museum in the world, the Heinz Nixdorf Museum Forum. The museum is located just outside the city, near the Padersee, a favourite retreat for the locals and a wonderful place to enjoy the water and nature. It is easy to reach from practically anywhere in the city -- just follow the Pader River down stream.

There is a small commuter airport, Paderborn-Lippstadt International Airport, just outside the city. With no rail link to the airport, car or bus are the only options to travel to the airport. The airport is served by Lufthansa and Eurowings, a European regional airline. Paderborn is easy to reach by car as it is located close to the main road network going north south and east west, the A33 and A44. Paderborn is within easy driving distance from Dortmund (87kms), Kassel (80kms), and Bielefeld (55kms).

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. 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. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
