In Bielefeld, there are quite many offices that offer car rental. In order to be eligible for that, tourists need to have international driver’s permit and pay a deposit that depends on a car brand and class. Travelers under 21, as well as drivers with an experience of less than a year, might be not allowed to rent a car.
As a rule, tourists prefer to rent bikes to explore the city because this way it is easy to reach virtually any part of Bielefeld. There are special cycling routes along all major streets, and, thanks to that fact, it is very convenient and secure to ride a bicycle in this city.
Vast majority of hotels in Bielefeld correspond their rank. Even a modest two-star hotel will have a free buffet type breakfast included. Nevertheless, while making a booking, it is important to take a look at the services included in each room.
Banks are the best place to exchange currency. On weekdays, banks work from 8:00 – 8:30 till 20:00. Exchange offices can work seven days a week, but, as a rule, they offer a less beneficial exchange rate.
