When you think of visiting a Dutch city, the cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam or The Hague usually come to mind. But this dear little country has a lot more on offer. Take Tilburg, a student city with a booming cultural scene, home to many “hidden gems” so to speak, and one of the greenest cities in the Netherlands. You should know this, we’ve talked about Tilburg many many times.
