Border Stories Routes

The Brabant Border

Border stories demonstrate the versatility of the region of North Brabant in a unique manner. North Brabant is located on the border of the Netherlands and Belgium and between the provinces of Limburg, Zeeland, Zuid-Holland and Gelderland. The border has a rich history with stories about smugglers, closed borders and borderless collaborations. There is a reason why this border has always played an important role in the life of the people of Brabrant. The first routes were developed within this theme and reveal the story concerning the Brabant border and the borderless nature of the region.
