Cities & Villages

The Kop van Noord-Holland area is the Netherlands in a nutshell!

Regardless of where you stay - on the 30-kilometre long, unspoiled and tranquil coastal strip with its beautiful sandy beaches for example, or in the varied countryside further inland - our regionís strength is the huge diversity of landscapes that it offers.

In the spring, you are almost overpowered by magnificent colours. Our region includes the largest single flower bulb growing area in the world. You will also find modern cities here such as Den Helder and Schagen where you can spend an enjoyable day shopping or go out for a bite to eat.

In addition, there are countless small villages and neighbourhoods that are well worth a visit.
