Why not make Sixt your number one option for car rental in and around the town of Leer? Open seven days a week, with an extensive range of vehicles in all classes, our branch offers the show-up-and-go convenience you might expect from one of Germany's larger cities. A fleet of 4x4s, estates and sports cars - not to mention leading compacts - includes some exciting car hire options. The car rental office's location on the main road provides smooth connections for inter-city driving and is popular with visitors travelling from across Germany's border with the Netherlands. But don't leave without exploring the delights of one of north-western Germany's best preserved towns.
The East Frisians - or Ostfriesen - take pride in their status: undeniably part of Germany, but with their own dialect and authentic traditions. That pride is most on show in the lovingly preserved, picture perfect streets of the old town and port, centred a late 19th century town hall famed for its frescoes and decorated ceilings. Sample delicate blends of teas in the Buenting Museum in Brunnenstrasse and discover the history of the East India trade and the clipper ships that once docked here. The Ostfriesen drink nine times more tea per person than the rest of Germany; the region's favourite drink, savoured in distinctive blue-and-white porcelain, remains a revered part of its identity. For a piece of history on an altogether grander scale, drive out to Evenburg and visit the splendid 17th century country house with its estate, lake and landscaped park. Virtually unknown, it's one of Germany's architectural treasures: romantic, peaceful and a wonderful place for a stroll or a picnic.
