Kraków car hire with SIXT

Kraków car hire is efficiency itself when you book with SIXT. A large reason that tourists visit here is the historical WWII sites. These are spread out over a wide area, so we’d recommend you hire something like an MPV. If you’re on business or spending your time in the city itself, we offer compact city cars among our many other models. They’re all made by some of Europe’s top carmakers and you’re assured of a vehicle that’s only 3 months old on average. Language won’t present any barriers, as our branches are staffed by English-speakers. You’ll find them in the city centre, and near the main railway station and airport.

Economy models and saloons are in equal supply, and you can also get an MPV or a 4x4 to tackle the countryside, particularly during the snowy winter.

What to do while in Kraków

Some very specific historical sites draw visitors to Kraków. As you’ll have a hire car, the first is Wieliczka Salt Mine, an underground labyrinth dating to the 18th century, and adorned with salt-hewn statues and monuments. It’s just over 8.5 miles from Kraków. The other main attraction is Schindler’s Factory Museum in the city itself, commemorating events in Poland during WWII. The historically important Wawel Royal Castle should also be on your list.   

Winter 2021 in Kraków

Winter is perhaps the best time to pay tribute at the Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau, which is just over an hour’s drive from Kraków. As it’s very cold, this is also when you can go sightseeing around the town with the climate control on, taking in landmarks like Wawel Cathedral, St Mary’s Basilica and the fascinating Museum of Pharmacy. There’s also the Stained Glass Workshop that offers guided tours in English.
