Dommelen, Eindhoven, Geldrop

You are not the only one who will enjoy the Dommel. Vincent van Gogh also painted the river several times. Nowadays, the Dommel is mainly popular with canoeists, but larger ships used to sail here as well. As early as the thirteenth century, water mills were built to use the river's water power. This cycle tour takes you along two beautiful historical water mills. The Genneper Watermill is the oldest and is first mentioned in 1249. The Dommelsche Watermolen is slightly younger, but with a first mention in 1422, can certainly be called cultural heritage.

There was already a brewery in Dommelen in 1744. Until 1868 it was a family business, where of course the Dommelsch beer came from. Nowadays, the brewery is owned by Inbev, the largest brewery chain in the world. Unfortunately, the brewery cannot be visited.

Follow the Dommel to get to the centre of Eindhoven. you also follow the Dommel for a part through the centre of Eindhoven. Eindhoven feels modern, but you'll find old-fashioned cosiness in the shopping streets with nice shops and caf├ęs. Here you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the works of Vincent van Gogh at the Van Gogh Mural. Artist Julien Crevaels was inspired by the landscapes Van Gogh often painted, with pollard-willows, farms and meadows and painted the tunnel, where Van Gogh often walked, with graffiti.

Between the urban areas, you will find breathtaking nature with forests, heaths and fens. A great cycle route to combine culture and nature!

Start your route at Tapperij De Zwaan in Heeze (near junction 13). There is plenty of room to park your car here and when you return you will immediately have a cosy location to enjoy a drink, dinner or one of the more than 200 speciality beers.
