From historical heritage sites (such as the Camp Vught National Memorial) to DJs like Tiësto (who hasn’t heard of him?): in Brabant, you can enjoy plenty of culture, art, design, food and music. The information presented in Brabant Brand Box is offered free-of-charge for positive stories about Brabant.
Enjoying life takes centre-stage in Brabant. So it is hardly surprising that Brabant, with its rich diversity of events, has the highest festival density in the Netherlands and is also the 2018 European Region of Gastronomy. In addition, with its countless small and several leading museums, Brabant is also an ideal destination for lovers of culture.
You see it wherever you go in Brabant: highly visible manifestations of art, design and culture. For example, (centuries-old) art in Het Noordbrabants Museum, contemporary design from the hand of Anish Kapoor in the De Pont, or raw inspiration at Strijp-S - the vibe in Brabant is one of constant creativity.
And when you think of art (in Brabant), how can you not think of Van Gogh? Vincent van Gogh and Brabant are inextricably linked. The little boy from Zundert grew up to become a world-famous artist who would leave his mark both on the world and on Brabant.
You can enjoy special experiences and meet like-minded people throughout Brabant. Carnival is a fantastic party every year! Even so, Brabant offers much more besides. For example, the Dutch Design Week (DDW) gives its visitors a unique insight into design in the Netherlands and above all Brabant. GLOW literally shines an artistic spotlight on Eindhoven each year. Woo Hah, the Hip-hop festival, emphasises the innovative urban character of the Tilburg music scene and both Jazz in Breda and Jazz in Duketown are nationally and internationally important jazz events we can be proud of.
Could it be a coincidence that Brabant - the region that has produced well-known artists like Tiësto, Hardwell and, of course, Guus Meeuwis - also has the highest festival density in the country?
