Most Hamburg car rental agents will allow you to return your hire car to another major city. This is known as ‘one way rental’.

Hamburg City and surrounds by car
Hamburg is build around its harbour, which is a beautiful place to spend time whether you wish to take a boat cruise, stroll along the waters edge, relax at a waterside cafe or enjoy a romantic dinner.
Take a daytime walk through the 300-year old Fish Market and the historic Warehouse District.
The Planten un Blomen botanic garden is the largest Japanese garden in Europe and a wonderful place to while away a relaxing afternoon.
Enjoy the nighttime sights and sounds of the famous Red Light District, bustling with restaurants, bars and erotic museums.
Just an hour from the city, plan a day trip to Bremen, home of the Musicians of Bremen from the Brothers Grimm folktale of the same name.
Stop and view the bronze statue of the musicians – a cat, dog, donkey and rooster – and see the sights of medieval Altstadt (Bremen’s old city).
Travel north from Hamburg to Lübeck. This beautiful old city is still crisscrossed with walkways and courtyards, and home to the Museum für Puppentheater marionette museum.
And remember that Berlin is just a half day’s drive away, so you can easily do a short road trip to explore the German capital and all it has to offer.
With so much to see and do in and around Hamburg you’ll keep occupied for several days and with the convenience of your own rental car you’ll be able to explore any towns or villages that take your fancy along the way.
