The Wetlands of Brabant

De Moerputten

You don't have to travel all the way to a tropical rainforest in South America! In Brabant you can get the same vibes much closer to home in nature reserve De Moerputten. Take an adventurous walk through this swampy jungle. Or brave the impressive Moerputtenbrug, an old railway bridge across a vast stretch of water.

This creative mural, created by artist Stefan Thelen, is an homage to Tilburg's past in the textile industry. Today, the rough, industrial character is still clearly visible in the DNA of the city.
