What to do in Beirut in Winter 2019

Winters in this part of the world are pleasant with temperatures ranging between 52 and 63 degrees. However, with the mild temperatures comes a lot of rain between November and March. The nights can also get cold in the western side of Beirut due to its higher elevation. Snow is very rare in the city center but can certainly be found in the western mountains - especially during the months of December to April. One of the highest altitude ski resorts in Lebanon is the Mzaar-Kfardebian Resort. It is located about an hour east of Beirut and is the perfect place to visit in your SUV rental from us. One great option that we offer is an optional add-on of winter tires and ski racks. If you plan on keeping your rent a car in Beirut be sure to stop by the Arnaoon Christmas Villages in Cheka. If the weather turns and you want to find a fun activity that is protected from the elements, one great option is to check out the Beirut Hippodrome. It is known locally as the Hippodrome Du Parc De Beyrouth. It's a popular location for horse racing and is open to foreigners for free on Sunday afternoons.

You can visit us online or download our mobile app. You can choose from several vehicle classes, including passenger van, minivan, convertible, luxury, or economy. It is important to note, however, that we cannot guarantee you will receive a specific make and model. Rather, we can only guarantee your reservation within a specific vehicle category.

  • GPS
  • Additional drivers
  • Collision Damage Waiver
  • Child seats for babies, children, and toddlers
  • Roadside Protection


Traffic Information

One important thing to note if you plan on driving your car rental in Beirut is that only the central areas have operating traffic lights. There have been plans in the works for quite some time to install them beyond the city center, but it has not happened yet. Otherwise, driving through the city is akin to driving through any major city in the world. There is a lot of traffic to be mindful of, though everyone eventually gets where they are going. The city is linked with all coastal cities via a single road. If you have the time it is highly recommended that you take your rental car for a spin on this coastal road.


Sixt Tips

Beirut has a population of more than 2 million people. It is by far the largest city in Lebanon and is both the commercial and financial hub of the country. It has a long and storied past, dating back around 5,000 years. The city is so old that there have been excavations in the city center that date back to the Roman, Hellenistic, and Phoenician civilizations. Lebanon gained its independence from France following the Second World War and quickly became a worldwide sensation for tourism. People flocked in from all over the European and Arab worlds to get a glimpse of this marvel on the Mediterranean. The country went through some rough years during their civil war of 1975-1990 but is today once again a jewel of culture and intellectual thought. The city also boasts some of the best nightlife in the region, second only perhaps to Tel Aviv in Israel. Be sure to leave your car rentals at home, though, if you plan on spending a night on the town.

Sightseeing Destinations

This city has so many great options for sightseeing it is hard to narrow them down. However, there are several places to visit in your car rental where you are guaranteed a good time. A great place to start is the Place de l'Etoile located in the heart of the downtown district. Built by the French in the early 20th century, this square hosts the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George which is attached to a small museum. Speaking of museums, be sure to take your rental to visit the National Museum of Beirut. With more than 1,300 artifacts this is the perfect place to learn all about the history of the country.
