Tilburg city trip

Transformation of a city

Until the 1960s, many residents of Tilburg worked in the textile industry. Today, the city is undergoing an unprecedented transformation and there are many nice and surprising places to be found. Time for a closer acquaintance!

Railway zone

The area around Tilburg central station has been transformed into a relaxed place. The former locomotive workshop, the LocHal, now houses the city-library that was nominated as the best library in the world in 2019.
In the Wandering (Dwaal) area, wall texts and names of buildings remind us of Tilburg's rich textile past. Here you will find a shopping area.


Do you want to know more about Tilburg's past? Then visit the Textile Museum. The museum is (of course) housed in a former textile factory.
Do you go for modern art? Then you can visit museum De Pont, which is housed in a former wool spinning mill.
Doloris is of a completely different order. You will gain a special experience in this art maze.

Abbey beer

Abbey Koningshoeven is located just outside Tilburg. The abbey is famous for the Trappist beer that has been brewed here since 1884. It is one of the 2 Trappist monasteries in the Netherlands. Trappist is not a beer type, but a description of its origin: the beer must be produced within the walls of the abbey. In the tasting room or the gardens of the abbey you can enjoy a delicious La Trappe.
Address: Eindhovenseweg 3, 5056 RP Berkel-Enschot

De Korte Heuvel: "The Short Hill"

The name may be short, but once you step inside, a visit is by no means short! The Korte Heuvel is the most famous café street in Tilburg. Here you can enjoy a beer or a Schrobbelèr, a Tilburg herb bitter, until late in the morning.
