Hilversum could almost pass as an open-air museum honouring the work of architect W.M Dudok, who was the designer for a significant portion of the town's 20th century buildings. A variety of gorgeous parks and gardens, including the Pinetum Blijdenstein botanic gardens, add to the splendour of this enchanting city which was formerly known as the “Garden of Amsterdam”. Those who prefer a more urban setting will enjoy shopping the up-scale boutiques at Gooische Brink Shopping Centre.

Getting There & Around:
Hilversum is best reached by train, as the central station offers service to Amsterdam, Utrcht, Amersfoort, and Schiphol Airport (40 km). Drivers can use the A1, A2, and A27 motorways to access the town as well.
Being quite compact, Hilversum is pedestrian and bike-friendly, but cheap, convenient city buses are also an option.
