  • Walking & Cycling

    Eersel is a walking and cycling paradise on the Belgian border (just below Eindhoven) and winner of the title ‘Walking Municipality of the Year’ in 2014. We won this title thanks to the hundreds of kilometres of walking and cycle paths, the walking route app, the good facilities, and the welcoming outdoor cafés where you can finish the route by enjoying a Kempisch Kwartierke or some tasty bar snacks.
