Hiking in Brabant

What better way to explore Brabant than on foot? Walk through towns, across heathland, through woods and past quaint villages. 

Walking route network

There are many different walks you can take in Brabant, and the Dutch system of walking trail junctions makes finding the way very easy. This system is a network of beautiful signposted trails, covering all of Brabant. Every junction of paths or roads has a number. By walking from one junction to another, you can create your own walking route.The network does not stop when you leave Brabant. The Dutch provinces of Zeeland to the west and Limburg to the east use the same system, and so does a part of Belgium to the south.

​And don’t forget to take some breaks on your trip to experience the real Brabant!
