OISTERWIJK:

 

 

 

 

 

This is the left side of the, in spite of it’s truncated tower, very imposing church in the middle of Oisterwijk.

All around the church you can find art-objects, but this particular spot with the niche, is special. The lack of a tower is somewhat glossed over by the small, onion formed, tower on the middle of the roof. Visiting the church is rather restricted.

The surrounding square of this Sint Petruskerk is also impressive; it consists of cobblestones, which is not very “less-mobile” friendly, but there are some parking spaces for invalids. Around the square several shops and restaurants are found.

 

Where this picture is taken, you are with your back to the VVV Tourist Office (around the corner) and across from the VVV you find the Museum “De Vier Quartieren” with a collection of the Brabant province’s folk- and farmer’s lifestyle.

Next to the VVV is the “Museumke De Poffer” with clothing, and particularly hats, from the old days.

On top of these museums you will find the “Museum Kruysenhuis” which harbours the paintings of three generations Kruysen, as well as changing exhibitions.

 

Oirschot has many white houses, which gives the onlooker a cheerful feeling.

Close to Oirschot is the well known Safaripark De Beekse Bergen.
