Car rental in Germany

Jump to last reply

Our September trip to Germany is coming together but I hope some of you on this forum can answer a question for me with regards to car rentals in Germany. We are flying in to Frankfurt and as of now plan to commute by train for the beginning of our trip around the Mosel and Rhine region. Then we thought we would get a car for the last five days when we travel through Bavaria.

Our last night on the Rhine will be in Oberwesel before heading to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. We'd like to stop along the way to visit the town of Rothenburg where our ancestors are from. So my question to all of you is, where would be the best place to pick up a car? From what I have read, Oberwesel might be too small of a city. Thinking of taking the train to Mainz and getting the car there. Does that make sense or is there a better place? Then after our tour of Bavaria we will spend our last full day (the first day of Oktoberfest) in Munich. We have hotel reservations is Freising. My next question is where we should drop off the car? Is it cheaper and easier to drop it off in Munich or is Freising a big enough city that would have sufficient rental agencies for which we can drop off the car? Thanks in advance for any insight.
