Have you already booked your vacation, or are you still exploring your options? Then, Noord-Brabant is an absolute recommendation. This province is characterized not only by its culinary traditions and many excellent restaurants but also by the range of activities it offers. Vodatent recommends the top 5 attractions to explore in Noord-Brabant!

1. Climbing & Adventure Forest Rocks N Rivers

Looking for an active outing during your stay in Noord-Brabant? Then, visit the Climbing & Adventure Forest Rocks N Rivers in Goirle. Here, you can enjoy climbing and scrambling. They have set up a fun survival journey for the little ones, and you can also find an educational walking route through the adventure forest. Explore the border area between Tilburg and Poppel or discover the secrets of the smuggling era that took place during the war.

2. Breda's Church

Breda is a beautiful and pleasant shopping city. When you're relaxing on the Grote Markt of Breda after a shopping spree, your eye will be drawn to the Grote Kerk (church) of Breda. The Grote Kerk is free to visit and houses several historical tombs, including that of Engelbrecht II of Nassau. Especially if you appreciate architecture, this is an outing in Noord-Brabant that you should not miss. The church tower is unmissable with its height of 97 meters. If you happen to get lost in the shopping streets of Breda, this is a great landmark.

3. La Trappe Brewery

Just below Tilburg, in the town of Berkel-Enschot, you'll find the only Trappist brewery in the Netherlands, the La Trappe Brewery. In this brewery, you can not only enjoy a guided tour and a delicious glass of well-poured Trappist beer but also savor a tasty lunch in a unique setting. After lunch, if you're in the mood for some activity, take a stroll through the monastery garden. Another recommendation is their homemade Trappist cheese.

4. Oisterwijk Woods and Fens

The enchanting nature can be found in the Oisterwijk Woods and Fens. If you enjoy walking and cycling through magnificent nature, this is an absolute recommendation for an outing in Noord-Brabant. It's also a great spot for photographers who love capturing the beauty of nature. If you need a break during your walk or bike ride, there are also options to satisfy your culinary cravings in this natural area. After all, you are in the culinary Brabant.

5. Zooparc Overloon

Of course, when you go on a "safari" in one of Vodatent's safari tents, a visit to Zooparc Overloon is a must as one of your outings in Noord-Brabant. During your safari, you'll explore various expedition areas and encounter exotic animals in the Amazon, experience African adventures in Ngorongoro, and witness kangaroos hopping around in the Outback. This way, you can still see wild animals during your stay.
