Hire a car Giessen and discover the enchanting castles, charming vineyards and green rolling hills of the Lahn Valley region in Germany. The modern city of Giessen is situated along the eastern end of this valley which runs alongside the Lahn River. The city doesn't have many historical buildings in its downtown area due to WWII bombing destruction; about 75% of Giessen to be rebuilt after 1944. A car rental in Giessen offers a great opportunity to view the perspective of a modern German city in contrast to its nearby medieval towns.
The contemporary city of Giessen gives off an academic vibe with its abundant university programs which focus on the sciences. Mathematikum, a Math and Science museum, fits perfectly into this theme. It is an excellent place to bring the family as many of the exhibits are interactive and fun. All the exhibits are labelled in English and German and aim to inspire people with enthusiasm towards mathematics and the sciences.
Just outside of Giessen awaits the picturesque countryside of the Lahn Valley region. Follow the Lahn River west towards the quaint town of Braunfels. The historic town centre with its German half-timbered houses gives off the air as though being brought back to medieval times. Overlooking the town is the Braunfels Castle. The castle looks as though it has been taken straight from the pages of a fairytale illustration.
