Beautiful nature

Just outside the cities of Eindhoven and Helmond you find beautiful nature and large and small villages.

The rural areas are green, with a lot of forests, lakes and blue heather. They offer space, peace, absolute tranquillity and are ideal for biking, running and walking.

Irrespective of where you live you have easy access to impressive nature parks that you can reach within a maximum of forty minutes by bike. An extensive bicycle and footpath network enables nature lovers and sports enthusiasts to discover thousands hectares of nature.

Take "De Groote Heide" for example (see picture), a nature area located between Eindhoven and Belgium that consists of coniferous forests, moors, sand-drifts and beautiful fens and is crossed by several stream valleys. The diversity of habitats leads to the fact that the area has a varied flora and fauna. 


Space, peace and tranquillity  

In the urban areas in Brainport Eindhoven people, planet and profit are mutual reinforcing elements as well. In the cities respect for how we live, natural growth and attractiveness prevail. A futureproof city is a liveable city, we need a green and healthy environment, therefore you find lots of city gardens and green areas in the cities of Eindhoven and Helmond.  

Combining commuting and nature
