Lying just thirty kilometres from the Netherlands’ most famous city, Amsterdam, Hilversum is no less culturally important. Hilversum is the centre of Netherlands’ TV and film production, and is often referred to as the Media City. It has several shopping centres, as well as a central shopping district known as The Village. The city once held part of the Summer Olympics in 1928, partnering with Amsterdam for the events. Renting a car in Hilversum means that not only will you get to explore this unique city, but also you will be able to drive over to Amsterdam as well.
