In the heart of the North Province of Noord-Brabant sits Tilburg, best known for its vibrant festivals and widely renowned as the wool capital of Europe. With a unique history and a fascinating cultural landscape, the city is a perfect weekend getaway.
Car hire in Tilberg is a smart idea, as it would allow you to see a great deal of the open air art on display there, including, most recently, the Roundabout, a rotating house on the Hasselrotonde. Hiring a car in Tilburg means you can also take in some of the excellent live music events that the city has to offer.
Hiring a car in Tilburg can also take you to one of the cultural highlights of the year is the annual Incubate festival, which has seen performances from bands from all over the world including I Am Kloot and Mogwai as well as punk legends, The Buzzcocks. The festival takes place in September of each year and covers the entire city in a variety of venues. Renting a car to travel to the venues is recommended.
The Museum De Pont is the city's museum of contemporary art, which houses paintings from several modern Dutch masters, as well as having a rolling programme of exhibitions from fine artists as well as photographers.
If you are looking to travel outside of the city of Tilburg then there is plenty to see. Further afield, and lying between Tilburg and neighbouring city Waalwijk is Loonse en Drunense Duinen, a beautiful national park, perfect for walks and a great choice for those who wish to take some time out from the city itself. More locally, within the city there are also many parks, including Leijpark and the Reeshofpark.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
