Car hire in Amsterdam

Discover more than just the city on your holiday to Amsterdam, hire a car and explore the beautiful countryside at your own pace. There are historic cities, idyllic villages and more beyond the capital just waiting for your visit.

Get the most out of your trip to the Netherlands, journey to the picturesque Waterland region just north of the city. Visit the charming Broek, or the wonderful fishing villages of Monnickendam and Marken – where the older generation still wear traditional dress. Venture a bit further to the vibrant city of Rotterdam, or to the government seat of The Hague – the gothic Binnenhof building is a sight not to be missed. Or see the more traditional side of Holland in Zaanse Schans, whose beautiful windmills are a reminder of Europe’s industrial heritage.

Waterland
Waterland.

Head just north of Amsterdam and you’ll find the wonderfully stereotypical Waterland region, made up of picturesque villages, dykes, canals and of course, windmills. Visit the picturesque village of Broek in Waterland, which was visited by Napoleon in 1811 and has changed little since. Equally charming and worthy of a visit is the fishing village of Volendam, with its historic buildings, bustling harbour and fascinating museum. And who can resist a trip to Edam, home of the delicious cheese, whose famous cheese market in summer has been operating since the 16th century.
