Campervan hire Berlin

Artsy and alternative, Berlin is a stimulating melting pot for free spirits and creative minds, with wild parties, liberating art, and a groovy start-up scene.

 

The undisputed European capital of cool, quirky trends, and underground artists, Berlin has something for everybody — and it’s the perfect starting point for a campervan road trip. Hedonists, hipsters, old-timers, newcomers, rave fans, electro-heads, artists, entrepreneurs, and all free spirits who don’t care for labels are not only welcomed to the city, but encouraged to take part in the urban extravaganza. Putting history on display without censorship, but mainly looking forward to the future, Berlin is a magnet for people who find joy in culture and architecture. The cosmopolitan city is also a playground for nonconformists looking for the next big business idea, awesome party or funky art exhibit. Vast green spaces, like Tiergarten and Treptower Park, to accommodate the need for strolls and just as many interactive museums — think DDR and Berlin Wall! — to quench your thirst for knowledge, you don’t stand even the slightest chance of getting bored here. Opt for a campervan hire in Berlin and choose among year-round festivals that keep the city alive and vibrant (not that it needed any extra help with that) or simply discover the local cosmopolitan vibe by wandering off. Where to? To artistic endeavours, of course.

 

Practical Information

Depot + Transfer

If you want to hire a campervan in Berlin, we’re right there for you. We’ll meet you at either Schönefeld Airport (SXF) or Tegel Airport (TXL), where you can pick up and drop off your campervan – free of charge in regular hours, of course!

Parking in the city

Parking a campervan or motorhome in Berlin won’t be an issue thanks to the various park-and-ride lots that are not only free but also plenty. The one best known is located near the Lichtenberg U-Bahn station and can be accessed 24/7. Although park-and-ride lots don’t have any security, Berlin itself offers a significant guarantee of safety for you and your van. Because, well, that’s the kind of city Berlin is.

Camping grounds nearby

If you want to spend the night in your rental campervan in Berlin, WohnmobilPark (which literally translates to “campervan park”) is one of the best options available. Wonderfully connected to the bus and metro system, WohnmobilPark offers a quiet green space and awesome facilities, including a shop, a mini-gas station, and a restaurant. The short, yet long-enough 30-minute motorhome drive from the city centre means that you’ll have peace and quiet. So relax! Berlin will definitely ask for you to recharge your batteries before you go at it again.

 

About Berlin

With notoriously long and harsh winters, Berlin has an equally chilly past — one that sent shivers through the world’s spine. From the 13th century, when its foundation was set, until the 19th century, Berlin went from being the capital of Brandenburg, through that of Brandenburg-Prussia, to being the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia. Next, its most turbulent times began in the 20th century when the current capital of Germany was swept up by two World Wars and split in half after the second. However, instead of crumbling under history’s debris, Berlin transformed itself into a city that now bolsters, celebrates and embraces diversity. As for its winters, they remain as sharp as you would expect from a Northern German city, but you can easily shelter from the cold in your Berlin campervan hire or in one of the city’s idiosyncratic and fun locales. 

Actually, you’ll be more than heart-warmed, as the city’s off-the-wall clubs, assorted restaurants and art galleries nurture a freedom that few cities can even aspire to. Here, the culture of quirks is a way of life and, actually, the status quo. With industrial halls revamped to accommodate parties that can (and more often than not) go on for days, Berlin truly makes each day feel like a party. In September, art buffs are expected at Berlin Art Week, even though Berlin is filled with art every day of every month. If you’re the outdoorsy type, Berlin’s Botanical Garden — the second largest in the world — will get your appetite for green satisfied. And if it doesn’t, you can always head to Grunewald Forest or to the hills of Müggelberge. Hire a campervan in Berlin and hop on the hip spirit of this alternative city that always makes you want more.

 

What to discover

In and around the city

Liquidrom

If you’re in Berlin for its quirks and perks, this is the place that merges both. The Liquidrom is a spa that looks nothing like a spa. Gazing at its exterior you’d think you’ve landed in an Asimov novel. The SciFi-inspired architecture hides an even more peculiar interior with rave lights and music ranging from classical to techno beats that you can enjoy as you submerge yourself in water. Saunas, baths, and a fun floating pool are just a few of Liquidrom’s rejuvenating facilities that will leave you not just refreshed, but also fascinated and baffled (mostly baffled). Whether you’ll actually relax or not remains to be seen. But what’s certain is that you definitely have to experience the groovy Liquidrom.

DDR Museum

You can’t visit Berlin without also addressing the huge elephant in the room — history. The DDR Museum, one of Berlin’s favourites, informs about what life was like in East Berlin after WWII, and offers an interactive and immersive experience of the era. Hear, touch, feel, and directly interact with awesomely preserved objects to understand the everyday life from behind the Berlin wall, or at least have a glimpse at it. Make sure to put aside a few hours for the experience and go through the entire set without rush.

Monsterkabinett

A terrific and terrifying experience, the Monsterkabinett displays robotic art that will scare the kitsch out of you. Or simply scare you. Massive metal structures that range from insects to beasts occupy a large warehouse that serves both as an art gallery and haunted house. Also known as the Dead Pigeon Collective, the Monsterkabinett gathers not only an impressive collection of nightmare-inspired art pieces but also a gang of actors which have the sole purpose of scaring the boredom out of you. So, if you’re feeling a bit ‘meh’, this place will definitely put you in alert mode.

 

Recommended locations

Leipzig

Leipzig — or ‘Hypezig’ as it’s been called lately — is a funky trending German city that challenges Berlin in terms of creativity. And rightfully so. Its unmatched rhythm has been finely tuned by some of the world’s greatest composers. Bach, Wagner, and Mendelssohn lived and worked in Leipzig. Inspired by the city’s lively vibe, they returned the favour by infusing Leipzig with great music. Grab your backpack, throw it in your Indie Camper, and taste the freedom feeling that’s complementary to this bubbly Saxon City. But wait, don’t rent a van in Leipzig. Since the city rivals the capital, opt for a motorhome or campervan hire in Berlin and decide for yourself which of the two gets your creative juices flowing.

Hannover

Loved by residents for its high standards of living and enjoyed by tourists for its laid-back style, Hannover is cool as a cucumber and just as green. With the Herrenhäuser Gärten and Eilenriede, Europe’s largest urban forest, close to its centre, the city is a haven for nature lovers. But that’s not all there is to this German city that speaks a complex dialect. Beneath the calmness of its green landscape lies a frisky cultural scene. If you’re thinking to hire a campervan in Hannover though, don’t be so hasty. Hire a motorhome or campervan in Berlin and get to enjoy the comparison for a diverse taste. 

Potsdam

Quaint and idyllic, Potsdam welcomes you with a whimsical atmosphere. To get a taste, you don’t even need to rent a campervan in Potsdam. Instead, hire a motorhome or a campervan in Berlin and enjoy the short 25-km road trip to the capital state of Brandenburg while planning what royal parks and palaces to visit (hint: all!). Comfortably sitting along the Havel River, Potsdam might be old-school but it’s as relevant as it was back in the day when it proudly took on the role of royal seat of Prussia. In 1990, Potsdam also received another recognition for its awesomeness, the Unesco World Heritage Site.
