Visitors in Berlin have a problem of plenty. There are too many must-visit historic attractions, too much good food and nightlife and too many interesting sights that you just cannot avoid. It seems they started partying after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and nobody told them to stop. If you want an immersion experience into the cultural hub at the center of unified East and West Europe, get a car for hire in Berlin and rip through the city all day and all night long. Enjoy the döner and currywurst, the cafes, beer gardens and the night clubs, and come back with pictures of the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag.
This is a city that dates back to the 13th century and has been the capital of four different kingdoms before it became the modern capital of unified Germany. It got ripped apart after WWII, and reunited again as one Berlin and one Germany in 1990. How many must-visit attractions in Berlin could you possibly list on one page? You can get a car for rent in Berlin and start in Pariser Platz with the Brandenburg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial. See the Reichstag building, Checkpoint Charlie and other Berlin Wall Memorials. You could squeeze in Alexanderplatz and the TV Tower. A visit to Berlin would be incomplete without a foray in to Ku'Damm, with a trip to the Charlottenburg Palace, Tiergarten, the Victory Column and the Olympic Stadium.
Since you have the Ku'Damm scheduled on the itinerary, you might as well start with some luxury shopping here. Follow it up with a visit to Fasanenstrasse for even more luxury stores. With 9,000 restaurants offering a dizzying range of cuisines, a food and drinks tour is considered a must for tourists in Berlin. You just have to taste the currywurst and doner kebabs, and spend some time in a few beer gardens. If you are a night owl, you might want to hang around in the Mitte District as the sun goes down.
It is hard to justify heading out of Berlin to find tourist attractions, but it is rather enjoyable to discover even more unique towns and attractions outside the city. You can head out to Potsdam and then Brandenburg, or to Schönefeld. You could visit quaint small towns like Bernau and Strausberg nearby. If you can handle a 2-3 hour drive, head out to the Baltic Sea on a day trip and visit historic coastal towns like Rostock and beach towns like Rügen.
It would hard, if not impossible, to list all the agencies with depots that offer a car rental in Berlin for visitors. The easy way to do it is to use an online service to compare all the offers from every car hire agency in Berlin. Choose the one that is offering the best deal, and book your choice of vehicle right now so that you can be ready to roll the minute you arrive in Berlin.
