Hart van Brabant

From authentic villages such as the walled town of Heusden and Hilvarenbeek to the international top attractions of Efteling and Safaripark Beekse Bergen, the Heart of Brabant has it all. Extensive walking routes through beautiful and varied nature reserves such as the Loon and Drunen Dunes to the lively town of Tilburg with a lovely area in the centre to wander around, and renowned museums such as De Pont.

Everything within biking distance
Whether you’re in search of woods, dunes or wetlands, or looking for a petting farm for the children or a village with a lively square and an old Brabant café: almost everything in the Heart of Brabant is within cycling distance. The numerous routes through Middle Brabant are well-signposted and go right through the countryside and villages: so plenty of places to stop off. Enjoy an authentic Brabant sausage roll on your way or one of the locally brewed beers such as La Trappe Trappist beer.


The Heart of Brabant is the area around the town of Tilburg. A lively town with the atmosphere of a village, where all the bars, museums and other sights are within walking distance of each other. You can learn all about the history of this textile town in the Textile Museum, or you can walk among the mammoths and sabre toothed tigers in the Natuurmuseum, while modern art enthusiasts should not miss De Pont Museum. The Piushaven (Pius harbour) is located in the middle of the town;  a flourishing area  with plenty of catering establishments and opportunities for fun on the water.  Tilburg also has its raw edge; the old railway sidings are developing at lightning speed into a surprising mix of heritage and innovative architecture. Rough, raw and sophisticated!
