Located in the province of North Holland is the city of Heerhugowaard, which lies in the region of West-Frisia or West Friesland as it is also known. The city of Heerhugowaard and the surrounding areas are well known for their natural beauty, with many parks, farmland and greenery in the surrounding areas.
Hiring a car in Heerhugowaard is the easiest option for those who want to travel around the area of West Friesland, as well as perhaps exploring further the province of North Holland. The area has a vast array of things to see, and should not be missed.
The Poldermuseum should be on everyone's itinerary if they are visiting the city of Heerhugowaard. The Poldermuseum, which tells the story of the Van Loon family who used to rule the surrounding area, and is located in their former home, is a great example of a museum which tells an interesting story around the history of the Netherlands.
The easiest way to get to the Poldermuseum is by hiring a car in Heerhugowaard and driving out to the museum. Also worth visiting is the West Frisian Omringdijk, a beautiful area of land surrounding a dyke system which protects the Westflinge region.
If it is a day trip that you are looking for when visiting Heerhugowaard, then you should head to Alkmaar, which is a perfect city to spend a day exploring. Food lovers will want to check out their world famous cheese market, which is one of the country's main attraction! The city is home to the Holland Cheese Museum as well as a Beatles Museum, both of which are highlights of any trip to the city.

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.
