About & Around

Plan your day

Take a stroll over the fortified walls of Klundert

Would you like to spend some time in beautiful nature with historical importance? You can, in the Klundert fortress. During the 80 years’ war against the Spaniards, this small fortified city was part of the Defenses of Willemstad, and with that, also the ‘Zuiderwaterlinie’ (Southern Dutch inundation zone). Discover the remains of the historical defense buildings or the renaissance city hall, and take a stroll along the remaining canals.

More than a fortress

Klundert is more than a fortress alone. Marine clay agricultural land, creeks, and streams remind us of a centuries-long fight against the water. Cycling and walking tours in surrounding nature reserves like ‘Buitengorzen’ and ‘Ruigenhil’ enable you to explore this unique area freely. Also, pay a visit to the ‘Nationaal Vlasserij-Suikermuseum’ (National flax and sugar museum). Here, you will learn all there is to know about the sugar industry, as well as how people lived and worked back in the time with flax and sugar beets.

Get a feel of the local atmosphere during a city walk organized by the local history society ‘Die

Overdraghe’ or visit one of the temporary exhibits in the cultural center ‘t Heemhuis’. Do not skip a stopover at the city hall! Curious about the local delicacies? Taste them during the characteristically weekly markets and take a look in the local boutiques.

Activity and relaxation

Are you looking for some relaxation time in between activities? Take a swim in the water of the indoor swimming pool ‘de Niervaert’. Besides swimming pools, you can enjoy a wild water creek, a giant tubular water slide, a whirlpool, and a Turkish bath. Together, they offer a perfect alternation between cultural, outdoor activities and relaxing activities.

Things to do

The lay-back attitude of Brabant mixed with Dutch status, that is Willemstad! A short distance from Rotterdam, Breda and Antwerp, to be discovered by boat, on foot or by bike. The gateway to Brabant as an ideal place for a day trip or short break. Moerdijk has surprisingly many faces. Will you come and discover them?

Eat & Sleep

During your visit to Willemstad and its surroundings, you should try the local specialties! The West Brabant region is known for its sweet cherries, mushrooms and fresh fish from the river Hollands Diep. Be sure to taste the locally brewed beers, such as the Willemsch Lente beer and the Jakobus Buijs beer from brewery D’n Luie Hond (The lazy dog) in the fortified town of Klundert. Buy the local products at markets or in one of the many local shops at farmers’ homes. Cheers!
