Around Willemstad

Plan your day

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!
