For a cost-effective means of exploring the city of Munich and the southern German region of Bavaria cheap car hire in Munich Airport is probably the best selection. Within comfortable distance are winter ski resorts in the Bavarian Alps, the nature park at Altmuehltal, Ingolstadt and Dachau.
Although Munich is famous all over the world for its Oktoberfest beer festival, there is much more to the city than that. Museums such as the Deutsches Science Museum and the Glyptothek as well as the National Theatre, art galleries, eclectic restaurants and nightlife venues add to Munich's visitor draws.
Driving a car rental in Munich Airport on the Autobahn 9 route north of the city leads first to the turnoff for the former Nazi concentration camp at Dachau, and then on to Ingolstadt and the bottom edge of Altmuehltal Park. This last park is a wonderful sight with hiking trails meandering around grand limestone crags and castles (schloss).
Munich Airport provides an easy entry point to the district. The airport, full name Munich Franz Josef Strauss Airport, is 25kms from the city, and is close to the A9. The airport is Germany's second biggest and sees more than 30 million travellers per year. The airport has two terminals which are linked by a central service and retail outlet centre.
Service desks for car hire in Munich Airport companies such as Hertz are located in Terminal 1, near the entrance to the shopping plaza. Apart from car rental and shops, there are lots of bars and eateries as well as information counters and medical stations at Munich Airport.
