Walk or cycle the street-art trail through Tilburg
15 kilometers and 28 murals, that's the street-art trail plotted by our retired Tilburg University colleague Wilko Elsinga. The trail can be walked or biked daily for free at a time that is convenient for you. If you walkt the trail in the month of May, the employee association offers a drink and a snack 'to go' for one or two people at a location along the trail.

Wilko’s street art trail starts at the central railway station, so it is a convenient starting point for people from outside Tilburg who come to the city by train. The trail is a great opportunity for (new) and long-time employees alike to get to know the city, because you will also be passing other Tilburg highlight, such as, Wilhelminapark, the De Pont museum, the Textile Museum, and more.
We cycled the route yesterday. Very nice; we also saw parts of Tilburg that were unknown to us.
