There are 2 toll roads in Denmark: the Øresund Bridge that goes to Sweden, and the Storebælt Bridge. You can add payments of these tolls as an extra when you book to save time.

  • Aarhus: This city, sitting on the east coast of the Jutland Peninsula, offers wonderful sites to visit as well as a wealth of timbered houses that are several hundred years old. You can stroll through the greenhouses of the Aarhus Botanical Garden or soak in the culture of the ARoS Museum.

It was a rainy day so I book a car at the last minute via the website. Unlimited mileage. The friendly staff at counter has my bookings within an the hour. Drop off after hours is easy. Drive to carpark underground. Park at any of the lots marked - return reserve and drop key in nearby box. Took a few minutes to find my way out though.

Jerry P.

Rental process was very easy and the agent had been professional as well as being helpful.

Vehicle was very clean and no issues during the rental.

Returning process was very straight forward and simple.

I highly recommend using Sixt and will use them again in the future.

Sixt Hellerup's customer service is top-notch. A very competent employee helped me find the perfect car for my driving needs. Thanks for the excellent treatment.

June R.

My husband and I arrived at the counter and were met by a young lady named Laurla (I think that is how it was spelled). Laurla (Italian is I think her first language) spoke wonderful English and went over the rental contract carefully and then walked us to our car. We needed some help getting used to the silent start-up but overall the experience with staff, the vehicle was excellent. We would recommend your company to anyone who is travelling to Copenhagen.

I have rented a car from sixt Hellerup several times. The service has always been excellent. customer focused and very professional and friendly staff. They have offered also free upgrades several times when the original car was not available. 5/5 !
