North Brabant is a pleasant province with many events, historic villages and large cities, such as Eindhoven, Den Bosch and Tilburg. Yet there is much more beautiful about Brabant; there are many beautiful, well-known nature reserves such as De Biesbosch, De Loonse en Drunense Duinen and De Groote Peel. The great variety of nature reserves and landscapes makes it an attractive province for walking. That's great, because according to The Nature Pyramid, every person should go out into nature on a regional scale every week to stay healthy. North Brabant also borders Limburg, Zeeland, South Holland, Gelderland in the Netherlands and Antwerp and Limburg in Belgium! So there is plenty of choice to go out into nature every month in other Dutch or Belgian provinces.

Experience and listen to the healing power of the landscape

Experience the power of the landscape with deep designer's new Healing Landscape audio tour  Anne VanStrien . You can listen to this audio tour about the landscape and its healing powers everywhere, but preferably in your own garden, in the park or the forest. Somewhere where you can experience the landscape directly. Anne takes you along different dimensions of the Healing Landscape. But she also shows how we as humans, as part of the nature we are surrounded by, can contribute to the healing of the landscape.

The audio tour was co-created in collaboration with Lentekracht and Nature For Health as part of the Van Gogh National Park Healing Landscape Day 29 April 2021.
