Compare with Driveboo quickly and easily from home the rental cars of the approximately six car rental companies at Dortmund Airport online and decide on the rental car that best suits your needs.
Dortmund is a cultural and economic metropolis. With a rental vehicle, you are flexible and free to choose how to spend your time. In summer you can also get the beach feeling at Moog Garden in Dortmund. There you can enjoy cocktails by the pool and a barbecue under palm trees. Another idea for a relaxing summer day in Dortmund, is a homemade barbecue in one of the many parks. Just get a picnic blanket, a disposable grill and barbecue meat in a supermarket, pack everything in your rental car and you are ready to go. In the evening you can end the day in the open-air cinema at the water castle.
If you want to experience some action in between, here is a list of some music festivals in Dortmund and the surrounding area:
Fortunately, quite a few well-known car rental companies have now set up shop at the third-largest commercial airport in North Rhine-Westphalia, so that you do not have to forego any comfort with your rental car. Below, we have summarized the car rental companies that maintain a counter at Dortmund Airport:
You don't have to go far if you want to fill up your rental car. This is especially important to know if you have chosen a rental car with the best fuel option (full/full). Because with this option, you get the rental car directly full of fuel directly at the airport, but you are also obliged to bring it back full of fuel. You will find a Esso gas station and another Westfalen gas station directly on the B1 or you refuel your car directly at the Esso gas station at the entrance to the airport. Note that if you return the rental car empty despite the option you chose, the rental company will keep part of the deposit you left.
Thanks to the airport's central location, you can reach Dortmund's city center in just over 20 minutes by rental car, so you can head straight out on your Dortmund exploration. While there, you should definitely take a look at the Signal Iduna Park and the Westfalenpark, while soccer-loving visitors are likely to enjoy the German Soccer Museum. In addition, the Industriemuseum Zeche Zollern and the Florian Tower are worth a detour. Would you also like to get to know the surrounding area? Then we have compiled a few places for you below, along with the distance in kilometers:
|Places||Approx. Distance from the Airport||Approx. Duration with a rental car|
|City Center Dortmund||12,5 kilometers||21 minutes|
|Münster||56 kilometers||45 minutes|
|Duisburg||84 kilometers||1 hour|
|Kassel||150 kilometers||1 hour & 40 minutes|
|Wetzlar||165 kilometers||2 hours|
Do you want to pick up your rental car at the airport later or perhaps return it earlier? Then you don't necessarily have to hire a taxi to get to the city center, as you can also take public transport, such as the AirportExpress directly to Dortmund main station or take the Airport Shuttle in the direction of Holzwickede train station.
As the name one-way rental implies, this way you book a rental car for only one way. That is, with booked one-way rentals, you can pick up the rental car so at the place of arrival, which in this case probably would be the Dortmund Airport and later return the car at another location. Therefore, specify already when booking on the Internet, whether you pick up the rental car at the same place, or whether you choose here two different places for the pick-up and return station.
Dortmund is without question one of the cities in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region, which exudes your very own charm. However, if after a few days you would also like to take a few excursions or a round trip with the small car, a sporty convertible or a family van, you have made a good choice with Dortmund, because you will find interesting destinations in every direction, which you can reach with your rental car.
Dortmund is also not lacking in culture. If you want to get an Asian feeling for a change, visit theSri Kamadchi Ampal Temple at Hamm and if you want to cruise comfortably on a ship, head to the Sorpesee at Langenscheid. But also the not too far away Castle Altena is worth a side trip, and if you are already in the region, then you should not miss a ride on the Wuppertal suspension railway. Another highlight of the region is also the Villa Hügel in Essen, which hosts rotating exhibitions, and if you're traveling with kids, you can also take a look at the Zeiss Planetarium in Bochum.
