West Brabant: perfect to discover on a cycling or walking tour

There is much beauty to be discovered on foot, by bike or by canoe! Did you know that the southwest of Brabant has the largest walking route network in the Netherlands? At the reception of Molecaten Park Bosbad Hoeven you can obtain various cycling and walking routes, which depart directly from the park.


Nice routes are a.o:
id you know that life and landscape in Brabant were the basis for Vincent van Gogh's work? The Brabant Van Gogh cycle route consists of 335 km of cycling pleasure, divided into five unique routes, including a circuit around Zundert (place of birth) and Etten-Leur (where he had his first studio).

A final recommendation: cycling along the outer edges of the Biesbosch
