KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kassel

  • You can’t go wrong with car hire in Kassel when visiting Germany. In contrast to public transportation, which operates on present schedules, car hire in Kassel offers convenience and flexibility to explore the city and its nearby locations. You will drive and stop at your convenience. For instance, you can drive to Hercules Monuments, Bergpark Wilhelmshohe, Bauhaus Museum Weimar, and Buchenwald Memorial. Outside the city, you can find Wilhelmshohe Park, about 62 km (38 miles) from the city. Kassel car hire allows you to enjoy your trips while staying within your budget.
  • Booking car hire in Kassel at the airport allows you to leap into adventure immediately after landing. Kassel Airport (KSF) is the nearest airport to Kassel, about 16 km (10 miles) from the city centre. With several car hire agencies running on-site desks, getting your Kassel hire car at the airport is hassle free. The car hire desks are at the arrivals hall. Some car hire agencies at the airport include Flizzr, Thrifty, Europcar, Sixt, Global Rent-A-Car, Buchbinder and Avis.
  • Despite having narrow roads and one-way streets, driving your hire car in Kassel is generally a safe and fun experience. However, just like in other cities worldwide, the city can have distracted road users. For instance, bikers are generally impatient and may often ignore traffic regulations. Be mindful when approaching or overtaking them, as they usually overlap. Commuter drivers can be impatient and sound horns unnecessarily. Practice caution and drive with patience. The city has many roundabouts. Slow down when approaching intersections and roundabouts.
  • Significant cities in Germany are known for dense traffic during peak travel times, and Kassel is no exception. Expect rush hours roughly from 07:00 to 09:00 and from 16:00 to 19:00. The city experiences heavy traffic during rush hours since several residents access the city with private vehicles. Additionally, few roads access the city centre, leading to vehicles and motorbikes jockeying for position. Planning your routes well is critical to beat the traffic snarl-ups.
  • Book your car hire in Kassel at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Kassel are around 77% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What car type is recommended for driving in Kassel?

    Kasse car hire companies have a wide selection of vehicles. Consider the number of people you travel with and your luggage. If you are on a family holiday, consider a larger car to accommodate you and your luggage. Depending on the size of your family, an intermediate or standard is a great option. If you travel alone, consider a smaller vehicle like a mini or economy. Bear in mind that different vehicles have different safety features and fuel efficiency. The city has several off-road destinations; look for an SUV if you plan to visit some of these.

  • What is the speed limit in Kassel?

    Observing the speed limit when driving your hire car in Kassel saves you from getting into trouble with traffic authorities. Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit in Kassel is 30 km/h (8 mph) on narrow streets within the city centre, 100 km/h (62 mph) on non-urban roads, 50 km/h (30 mph) on city roads and 40 km/h (25 mph) around school areas. Kassel has posted speed limits to control the city’s traffic. Be sure to pay attention to them to avoid speeding, as they override general recommendations.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kassel?

    Hotels offer some of the best car parks, including Golden Tulip Kassel Hotel Reiss, Schlosshotel Kassel, Pentahotel Kassel and H4 Hotel Kassel. Usually, they offer free car parks if you reside on their property. But if you opt for metered parking, look for a car park in downtown Kassel to stay in the city’s hub. You will enjoy access to highways, accommodations, business centres and lively nightlife. Downtown car parks charge differently. Generally, it costs around €2 (about £1.72) per hour.

I didn't receive a car at Enterprise. They supposedly gave the car I had reserved away and had no other cars. I was traveling with my child from New York to Kassel and arrived late, due to usual travel delays. However, the staff was extremely rude and didn't offer any solutions. Thankfully, our taxi driver was still there and was able to give us a ride.
