In the heart of the Netherlands sits Zeist, a historical city to the east of Utrecht. Originally home of the wealthy from nearby cities, it is now a quiet corner of the Netherlands, perfect for anyone looking to escape the bustling cities and hide away for a holiday. Car hire in Zeist is recommended allowing you to explore the area.
Hiring a car in Zeist is easily accessible and gives you the freedom to explore not just the city itself, but head further afield to neighbouring towns and cities, all of which have much to offer visitors. Zeist itself, also has a rich cultural history much of which remains undiscovered by Western tourists.
Hiring a car in Zeist and driving across the town is the perfect way to take in the outdoor artworks that adorn the city. But the real joy is the freedom the town gives in terms of its location in the country. Zeist sits perfectly between Utrecht, and Amersfoort.
Rent a car in Zeist and take a short drive to Amersfoort where you can explore DierenPark Amersfoort, a zoo with everything from tigers to elephants and all in-between. It's a great choice for families and is very child friendly, with plenty of opportunities to feed animals, and help zookeepers out.
Visiting Zeist can put you right in touch with history, especially when it comes to art. The Slot Zeist, a mansion house open to the public is a great example of early 17th Century architecture, and many of the murals which originally adorned the house are still intact.
Driving out of the town you can find yourself in the fourth largest city in the Netherlands, Utrecht. Utrecht is home to many fascinating buildings, as well as The Letters of Utrecht, an ongoing art work in which a letter from a poem is etched into the pavement once a week. The city will also be hosting the first stage of the 215 Tour De France.

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.
