for us it was the usual sixt experience. kind staff and a car in a good shape.

we had no problems waiting for the car.

but the sixt counter is very small so i guess sometimes it takes some time.

As usual great experience overall, the Sixt counter is straight to your right after leaving the baggage reclaim area and the staff there was super friendly and competent. Pick up and return of our (pre-booked) car was a seamless and streamlined experience.
