Whether you are bringing all your friends along to Oktoberfest or taking the family to visit the city's fantastic museums, a 7 seater car hire in Munich is an excellent way to get around the city. But before you set out on the roads there are a few things you should know about driving in Munich.
While it is mostly true that there are no speed limits on the Autobahns (major highways) in Germany, there are actually stretches that do have posted speed limits. In addition, some areas have temporary speed limits posted. It is always better to be safe than sorry, so drive at the recommended speed limit of 130 kilometers per hour.
The speed limit for express ways is 120 km per hour, and on other roads outside the city it is 100 km per hour. Within city boundaries the speed limit is 50 km per hour, and 30 km per hour in residential areas.
Knowing who has the right of way in all driving situations can save you a lot of frustration and maybe even prevent an accident. Cars to the right have the right of way at all uncontrolled junctions and crossroads. Pedestrians always have the right of way in crosswalks or while crossing with the green light. Taxis and busses have the right of way when merging into traffic.
It is required by law to have a Verbandskasten (first aid kit) in your 7 seater car hire in Munich, as well as a Warndreieck (warning triangle).
