8 magical places in North-Brabant that you really must see!

1.    The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path

This is the most innovative and artistic cycle path in the Netherlands, between Eindhoven and Nuenen. The 600 metre long cycle path shows you the way in the dark thanks to thousands of light-emitting stones which were inspired by the ‘Starry Night’ painting. An amazing experience… The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path forms part of the Van Gogh Cycle Route. This cycle route comprises five unique routes which lead you past five Brabant communities that have a special connection with Van Gogh.

2.    Soak up the atmosphere in ’s-Hertogenbosch

Admire the beautifully illuminated town centre with its historic houses, small bridges and wonderful atmosphere. You can sail along the Binnendieze waterway in summer but there’s also plenty to experience in ’s-Hertogenbosch during the winter months. Check out more highlights on our ’s-Hertogenbosch page

3.    The Efteling continues to be enchanting… 

Themapark The Efteling is an amazing experience for young and old throughout the year. From the fairy tale wood to Raveleijn, from Baron 1898 to the Aquanura light show. Tip: visit it also during the Winterefteling. A fairytale world full of twinkling lights, fun on the ice and bonfires. Staying overnight? You can do that at the Bosrijk holiday park or the Loonsche Land Holiday park.

4. A magical night in North Brabant...

If you want a special night away, North Brabant is the place to be. How about La Marquise in Budel - voted Best Bed and Breakfast in the Netherlands in 2018 - with it's amazing suites, a beautiful garden, and even its own private beach? Or immerse yourself in pure luxury at Hotel Nassau, a former nunnery located in the centre of Breda. Are you a nature lover?

6.    Let it GLOW! 

Early in November, Eindhoven will be transformed into a fantastic light and art spectacle GLOW. Walk the route through the city centre or admire the breeding ground of the light projects in Strijp-S. There have already been ten editions of this magical festival. The next edition is planned from 10 to 17 November 2018.

7.    On a (night-time)safari in Safaripark Beekse Bergen

Safaripark De Beekse Bergen is the place to encounter impressive lions, rhinos, elephants and cheetahs! For an adventurous overnight stay, try the Ranger Camp or the new Safari Resort with individual lodges surrounded by savannas, woods and wild animals.

8. The Biesbosch National Park

The Biesbosch Museum Island in Werkendam is the ideal base for discovering the Biesbosch National Park. Imagine you’re in a jungle with narrow winding creeks and overhanging branches. A canoe is the ideal thing to have in this mangrove! Who knows, you may even spot a beaver or an eagle.
