Just a stone's throw from 's-Hertogenbosch, the idyllic municipality of Vught offers beautiful cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible. Perfect to combine with a visit to Brabant’s capital ‘s Hertogenbosch, this charming village offers galleries, museums, a variety of shops, fun events and very beautiful countryside. Admiring all the special cultural-historical sights, known as the 'Treasures of Vught', can easily fill several days, so Vught is also ideal for a weekend getaway.
In National Monument Camp Vught you will get an astonishing insight into the atrocities of the Second World War. This forms a stark contrast with the splendour of Maurick Castle, located on an island. Perhaps just as impressive is Landgoed Huize Bergen, a luxurious conference centre, situated in a beautiful park. The town hall is located in one of the most striking buildings of Vught: Villa Leeuwenstein. Former church DePetrus has been converted into a meeting place for people from all walks of life, for Vught and its visitors. The successful redevelopment was featured by news channel CNN and in Forbes magazine.
Language Institute Regina Coeli, better known as 'the Nuns of Vught', is a renowned language institute where countless (international) dignitaries, top athletes and Dutch celebrities come to learn a foreign language in a short period of time. The historical Fort Isabella connects natural areas De Gement and de Bossche Broek which together form a green zone between 's Hertogenbosch and Vught. Cycle route Line 1629 also crosses these areas and takes you along the most important locations of the ’s Hertogenbosch siege: a varied route through Vught, Sint-Michielsgestel, 's Hertogenbosch and Heusden.
Hospitable and green
The great thing about Vught is that all this cultural-historical and natural beauty is within walking and cycling distance of each other. For example, after a trip to the Vughtse Heide you can enjoy the IJzeren Man recreational lake (with the longest beach in Brabant!), after which you can end your wonderful day in true Brabant style in one of the charming cafés and restaurants in the hospitable village centre.
