North of Amsterdam, just outside the town of Den Helder is Den Helder Airport, also known as De Kooy Airfield. The airport is very close to the hamlet of De Kooy, and a short drive away from Den Helder. Hiring a car at Den Helder Airport gives you the opportunity to explore the surrounding areas and even more of the Netherlands. Den Helder is home to the Dutch Navy Museum, which explores the rich history of the Royal Netherlands Navy, called the Koninklijke Marine. The old naval dockyards now serve as a hub of restaurants and cinemas.
Hiring a car at Den Helder Airport and travelling south down the N9, will take you towards some of the cultural highlights of the Netherlands. Alkmaar, just a short journey away is extremely popular with tourists, and is famed for its cheeses. It is home of the first guitar bought by John Lennon, and a museum dedicated to The Beatles is located in the city. The city is also home to the Holland Cheese Museum located inside an historical whey house, and has one of the only remaining traditional Dutch Cheese Markets.
Den Helder Airport or De Kooy Airfield is rarely used for flights, and operates a limited service for passengers. Travelling further afield from Den Helder Airport, following the A7 will bring you to Amsterdam, perhaps the most famous city in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, and has numerous museums, restaurants and attractions, making it one of the most interesting places to visit in the country. Highlights include the Old Church and Van Gogh Museum.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
