Brabant is perfect for the most beautiful cycling routes. You can easily cycle from city to city, you have many routes with a rich history and of course the beautiful nature in this versatile, green province. From the Van Gogh cycling route throughout the province, to a real urban design route in Eindhoven... we have listed 5x the most beautiful cycling routes in North Brabant:
The Van Gogh cycling route
In our opinion, the Van Gogh cycling route is the most unique and versatile route in North Brabant. If you take this route (or part of it), you know the Brabant landscape through and through. This landscape laid the foundation for Van Gogh's work. The well-known painter was born in Zundert and grew up in this province, but has lived in many places in Europe.
The Van Gogh cycle route is 435 kilometers in total, spread over 10 laps. You can combine these rounds by following the Van Gogh connecting routes. You can start in Zundert, where Van Gogh lived until he was 16. In Breda he regularly visited his uncle, who had a great reputation in the art trade. Van Gogh went to school for a short time in Tilburg and had his first drawing lessons. Eindhoven and Neunen have had the greatest influence on Van Gogh's work, between the city and the village you will also find the world -famous Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path.
All information about the cycling routes can be found on Visit Brabant.
