De Helmondse Markt

Reviewed By Solodam J - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The fresh products/ food is on the market square and the non food is on the "markt" street. It's quite big market. You will find all you need such as bread, fruit, vegetable, clothes, soap, country-western stuff, shoes, bags, card etc., even shark. There is a small (street) passage "het Hool" - "Beursplein" with photos exposition about the market from 1964 to 1975, and also two poems of the Helmondse market

Dierenrijk

Reviewed By Emma E - Wales, United Kingdom

The zoo was absolutely fantastic. Such close encounters with the animals. We had a trailer for the kids to pull them around, as the park is very big. But always something to see with every step you take. We also had food here too which was also good. Very clean restaurant. A lot of work going on improving the park. Very good day out.

We started here with a drink before we were taken by their train to the brewery. After that visit we returned and enjoyed dinner with a large group. The food was excellent served in a very original way on wooden cutting boards serving for max 4 persons. Starter, main and desert tasted all very well and were of original taste.
Most impressive what that the lady who served our drinks, also provided the tour in the brewery and served us dinner.
And don't forget to check the men's restroom ;)

Booked the basic tour which cost around €11. We were given a brief introduction as to how Bottle Distillery was born. The distillery was set-up and is run by a lovely couple who have a passion for what they do. Mark and his wife have created a unique attraction that is part-distillery and part-bar. The 'still' is the most beautiful piece of aparatus and is captivating to watch as you get a talk on how it all works. Really amazing piece of kit! But the proof is in the pudding, which brings us to the product which comes out of the still. They produce a selection of gorgeous Gins (the Winter Gin being my personal favorite. So much flavor!). The Beer Brandy and liqueurs are amazing. The tour included a tasting of any 3 from their product line, which we felt was generous. The tour stated 30 minutes, but we spent a total of 90 minutes with a lovely Gin & Tonic beforehand and sipping the samples after the tour. Wonderful establishment and I'd highly recommend. Easily the best €11 I've ever spent. Looking forward to seeing Orion Gin in the UK in a few years ;) Keep up the good work guys!

Klok & Peel Museum

Museum Klok & Peel shows in a unique way how the Groot Peel National Park, a nature reserve bordering the Dutch provinces of Brabant and Limburg, has developed in the past ten thousand years. The museum also houses the world’s largest collection of bells and carillons. An unusual combination, maybe, but not when you realise that Asten is also home to the famous Eijsbouts Bell Foundry which recently supplied the huge carillon for Notre Dame in Paris. So come and enjoy both natural and cultural history in “the most hospitable and accessible museum in the Netherlands”, according to the Dutch motoring organisation ANWB. “A unique combination of culture and nature!” A visit to Klok & Peel offers a complete day out for all ages. There are plenty of hands-on learning activities for families with young children. Culture lovers will appreciate the extensive collection of bells and carillons. You will also learn a lot about the craft of bell casting and tuning. Nature lovers can delight themselves with the very detailed foxes’ den, a collection of fossils and an impressive mammoth skeleton. The museum displays the rich flora and fauna of these wetlands, in which culture and people take a central role. Location The museum is also an ideal stopping-off place for walkers and cyclists, with recharging points for electric bikes and cycle repair kits. Cycle along the ‘Peel-ommetjes’ (detour routes) or follow the ‘Spreukenpad’ (path of proverbs) where a trail of bronze plaques leads you past the loveliest parts of Asten. The museum is also close to Attractiepark Toverland and within half an hour you can get to the Vincentre in Nuenen or the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. “Amazing, more people should see and experience this!” With audio tours in English and German, and being under five kilometres from the A67 motorway, the museum is easily accessible for foreign visitors. That’s great for enthusiastic visitors because, for some people, one visit is just not enough: “We’ve already been here a couple of times and each time it has been just what we were looking for.”

Asten is home to an internationally renowned clock bell manufacturer. Consequently, a museum arose around the theme of clocks and bells. Additionally, the museum displays the natural wonders of the Peel region, mostly stuffed birds and mammals, butterflies, and fossil bones.
The clock part explains the production process of bells. There are many medieval bells on display. Also the mechanics of some clockworks are explained. A large hall displays time-keeping and sound devices from all over the world.

Golfclub de Gulbergen

Reviewed By nancyenron - Nuenen, The Netherlands

Ben je in de buurt van nuenen, Mierlo of Geldrop en heb je zin om een spelletje golf te spelen dan kun je goed bij de gulbergen terecht. Het clubhuis met 2 van de drie 9 holesbanen liggen tegenover Dierenrijk Europa. Er is voldoende parkeergelegenheid aanwezig. Ook hier zijn de oefenfaciliteiten.
Zoals gezegd zijn er twee 9 holesbanen hier gelegen. De eerste is de sprookjesbaan, die bestaat uit 3-4 en 5 par. De baan heeft veel hoogteverschil omdat deze op een voormalig vuilnisterrein gemaakt is. De baan heeft erg mooie vergezichten. De andere baan is de veel vlakkere libellebaan. Ook deze is leuk aangelegd en bestaat ook uit par 3-4 en 5.
Je kunt beide banen koppelen om zo een 18 holes te lopen.
De 3e baan is de 9 holes old coursebaan.
Deze ligt iets meer terug met een eigen parkeerterrein. Deze baan is een 3-4-5 par bosbaan.
Heb je voor, na of zomaar zin in een drankje of hapje dan kun je bij de uitbaters van de hoogte berghe in het clubhuis terecht.

Room Experience is great place for young and old. You can have kids parties there as well. The escape room is a tricky one, which makes it a nice challenge. The laser game I can also recommend, so exciting!
Logistics to the Room Experience are really good, next to the high way, opposite to the NH hotel and next to the Mac.

Pathe Helmond

Reviewed By Skinut79 - North Holland Province, The Netherlands

Nothing exceptional about this. It's just another multi screen cinema. They do get the latest films as released. It pretty much in the centre of Helmond by the canal and almost above an underground car park so convenient. Seats are ok. Usual "snack" food available in the foyer but save your money and either eat at home or over at one of the many nice bar/restaurants over the road & canal.

Van Gogh Village Nuenen

The village of Nuenen is also known as Van Gogh Village, and rightly so. There isn’t a place in the Netherlands where you can tread in the footsteps of this famous painter quite so literally. Here, stories about Van Gogh are still vividly told, his letters are available for Reading, and there are no fewer than fourteen locations which have been immortalised by Van Gogh in a picture or a painting. Experiencing Van Gogh’s life in the Netherlands so intensely is not possible anywhere else. “The museum is a gem” In the Vincentre museum you will hear all about Van Gogh and read his own stories about Nuenen, where he lived and worked from 1883 to 1885. Who was he, how did he live, who did he socialise with, and why was he so passionate about Nuenen? It will all become clear during an educational tour with an audio guide in no fewer than eight languages: Dutch, English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Chinese. In the village itself, no fewer than 23 locations have a direct link with Van Gogh. Together, they form a walking and cycling route with interactive informational signs in Dutch and English. From The Potato Eaters to The Starry Night The Potato Eaters is based on a scene that Van Gogh saw at the house of a peasant family in Nuenen. It literally comes to life in theatre Het Klooster. The world famous designer Daan Roosegaarde designed, based on Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, the now famous and unique Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path, for which thousands of twinkling stones were incorporated in the asphalt. This cycle path, between Nuenen and the nearby city of Eindhoven, is part of the Van Gogh Cycle Route. Heritage locations in Brabant This cycle route connects the five Van Gogh heritage locations in Brabant, which of course include Nuenen. You won’t get any closer to Van Gogh than this. Or, as one of our enthusiastic guests wrote about Nuenen: “The same view that Van Gogh had!” Come and experience the place in which Van Gogh was inspired by the rural Brabant countryside, easily accessible at no more than ten kilometres away from Eindhoven, city of technology and design.

Reviewed By Davor R - Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands

Nuenen is the place where Vincent van Gogh spent two years and painted "The Potato Eaters" there in 1885. You will find a nice sculpture of this painting in the park. You can even join it by sitting on a separate chair... the artist's chair? At the museum (8 Euro admission), you will get a map of the town. The exposition is very good and tells a lot about Vincent's life but ... it is all in Dutch. If you do not speak Dutch or do not have a native whisperer, the Vincentre will not give you any value, except for purchasing something from the gift shop. There is a marked outdoor route with significant points, all with panels also in English, some of them with audio, also in English. If you do not travel with car, you can get to Nuenen by bus in less than 10 minutes from Eindhoven central train station.
