Translated as 'The Duke's Forest' from its formal name 's-Hertogenbosch, the city of what is better known as Den Bosch is found in the southern Netherlands. With so much remaining in this city from centuries gone by, it's any history buff's dream to hire a car in Den Bosch and explore the local area.
Car hire in Den Bosch provides a great view of the fortifications, which used to protect the city while it was a key Dutch stronghold. Efforts have been made to uphold and protect these walls and ramparts against redevelopment; seeing them is a must.
With 'The Forest' being split into many different neighbourhoods, hiring a car in Den Bosch is advisable if you wish to see everything the fair city has to offer. The city centre itself is mainly car-free but there are still plenty of landmarks and attractions for the four-wheeled tourist to enjoy.
The beautiful architecture of buildings like Sint Jans Cathedral and the Moriaan - the latter of which is one of the oldest in the whole country. For a daytrip you'll find Efteling Park about 20 minutes out of the city centre; it's a fun-packed theme park for all the family to enjoy with many rides and sideshows.
If you want to head further afield, there are plenty of other major Dutch cities close by to visit; hire a car in Den Bosch and you're already halfway there. The A2 road north will get you to Amsterdam in just over an hour, where you can savour many more of the country's beautiful buildings and some scenic canal paths too.
Alternatively, an hour up the A50 will see you arrive in Hoge Veluwe National Park; get back to nature and discover the many species of animals which live in the different habitats of the Netherlands among woods and even sand dunes.

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.
