Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Berlin
As with most of Europe, cars in Berlin always drive on the right-hand side. Speed limits should be adhered to at all times, with on-the-spot fines for those caught speeding. However, along the Autobahn motorways outside of Berlin, many stretches do not actually have a speed limit at all, and so these roads can be extremely fast at times.
Parking around central Berlin is rarely a problem, although the best car parks tend to be the most expensive. Whilst street parking is available for free, it is outside of the city centre, being mainly concentrated around the eastern suburban districts.
Speed limits in Berlin, Germany
Urban areas: 50 kph / 30 mph
