Homeland of Vincent Van Gogh, the founders of Dutch Design, and blessed with cities full of character, prize-winning theme parks and exciting events, Brabant has a lot to offer and is increasingly being discovered by international tourists. This makes perfect sense, because there is plenty of good accommodation in Brabant with favourable terms. Moreover, Brabant has quick and excellent connections to Amsterdam, Antwerp and Brussels (journey time about 60 minutes). This makes Brabant the ideal starting point for trips out to the metropolitan areas in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Come and discover Brabant!
Each city has its own character. Brabant has several cities that lend themselves perfectly to city breaks. Choose from historic, laid back, hip or creative. Or combine all these cities into one package, because they are all within easy reach of each other.
Being Vincent’s homeland, probably the world’s most famous painter, Brabant has a wealth of culture. Together with ’s-Hertogenbosch as the home of Hieronymus Bosch and Eindhoven as Capital of Design, Brabant is a world-class cradle of culture.
Amusement parks at their best! Almost 5 million people visit the world-famous Efteling theme park each year. You can literally be introduced to the African wilderness among the animals in the Beekse Bergen safari park – an icon for the family sector. Anyone can be a child in Brabant!
A world-class festival every day. Brabant is renowned for its festival culture. A town like Tilburg stages events every weekend. The Brabant DJs Tiesto, Hardwell and Fedde le Grand provide a rich culture of dance. But consider also the world’s largest flower parade in Zundert, Dutch Design Week or ‘Pink Monday’.
Brabant countryside, always close by. Brabant is home to a wide diversity of relaxing countryside. From sailing through the Biesbosch National Park to running through the Loon and Drunen Dunes or losing yourself in the many woods and heathlands. Sportive or relaxing. Something for everyone.
You won’t really experience Brabant until you have stayed here for a couple of days. From an overnight stay in a former monastery to waking up in the middle of the countryside, and from the most luxurious five-star hotels to modest budget accommodation. And when visiting Brabant you should certainly savour the local specialities. Bon appétit!
