Welcome to the Enterprise Duisburg car rental page. Choose from a wide selection of cars ranging from smaller economy cars to larger SUVs and people carriers
Situated in the western Ruhr Area, Duisburg is a very modern, industrial city with a rich history as the royal court of the Franks. This centre of road and water links is home to as much industry as culture, attracting people for shopping, business and festivals.
The Enterprise branch in Duisburg offers a range of suitable vehicles for hire. Compact cars are a great choice for navigating the city streets. A larger Economy is ideal for families visiting Duisburg.
Commercial users looking to trade or work in Duisburg can hire cars in any size, from small to extra-large, with plenty of room for equipment. For business links which require long stays in the car, the Intermediate such as a BMW 1-Series is a great mix of class and comfort. Larger vehicles like a Volkswagen Passat are popular with people moving into the city or staying for long periods.
Duisburg has several museums and zoos, such as the Lehmbruck Museum, which attract tourists every day. By renting a car, you’ll be able to pack so much more into your day as certain attractions are on the outskirts of the city, such as the TerraZoo Rheinberg.
With the University of Duisberg-Essen and cultural sites like the Deutsche Oper am Rhein opera house, people flock to the city both for weekends and to live and work.
One reason for renting a car in Duisburg is that other nearby cities in the Ruhr area can be easily reached. Nearby Essen is another metropolitan city with fine dining, shopping and culture to soak up, so hiring a car for the day makes it easy to visit. For a little fresh air, Essen’s Botanischer Garten Grugapark is an oasis in the city with its own aviary. A small economy car is a good choice for making parking easy.
Those looking for a rural getaway might go east to the Sauerland, a forested area of hills and sweeping valleys which is an attraction by itself. This is a large tourist region and appeals to those wanting to escape the city, and taking day trips to the hills is popular amongst travellers. A rugged SUV is a good choice for the bumpy roads and provides room to stretch out beside the lakes.
The closest international airport to Duisburg is Düsseldorf International Airport. This is not far to go by car as it is only 2 minutes from the Duisburg Enterprise car hire facilities. The A59 and B8 are the main routes between the cities, so visitors to the region won’t have a long wait to get a suitable vehicle from either the depot at Duisburg Train Station or from Düsseldorf itself.
The primary Düsseldorf Enterprise car rental location is at the airport Terminal Ring 1, so this is the ideal choice when coming into Germany this way.
Traffic can be heavy in Duisburg due to the industrial, built-up nature of the city, especially since it’s a popular commuter destination. Peak times can result in waits on the local roads trying to reach the Autobahn. Fortunately, the city is served by multiple Autobahns heading north-south and east-west, so congestion should only be temporary.
Parking in Duisburg is very accessible, thanks to large parking garages like the Contipark. These are largely in the city centre, around the pedestrianised shopping district.
