Car & Van Hire in Mulhouse

Enterprise car hire locations in Mulhouse

In eastern France, close to France's border with Germany and Switzerland, is the city of Mulhouse, home to Upper Alsace University. By the time of the Holy Roman Empire, Mulhouse was already established as a town, although it didn't become part of France until 1798. Since then, as part of Alsace Lorraine, ownership has changed several times, becoming part of Germany during the Franco-Prussian War and only being returned to France after the First World War. Mulhouse is sometimes referred to as the Manchester of France because of the growth of the cotton industry in the town during the 19th century, and the link with American cotton plantations. Today, the city is an important centre for the French automotive industry; Peugeot is the biggest employer in the area. Chemical production and electronic engineering are also important components of the local economy. Click the link for details of Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Mulhouse.
