Please let us know if you would  like an English headset as those are first come, first serve.

This Halloween night you are invited to join us for a spooky Ghost Tour of Tilburg.

“Shivers run down your spine when the other side of the grave reveals its dark secrets …Follow the dark guide through the hidden past of Tilburg and stay calm, because some evil entities are not happy with our arrival … But ghosts do not exist, yet?”

Beginning at the cemetery on Bredasweg, a guide will lead us through the haunts of Tilburg. The tour will be in Dutch, but headsets with English will be provided. Due to the nature of the tour, children 12 & under are not allowed.

To get into that spooky spirit, some of us will be attending dressed in Halloween costumes.

Feel free to join us for a pre-tour drink at Wijnbar Cru at 7:30pm (Heuvelstraat 139).

Reminder: Autumn Day @ Grotto

Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018 *In case of rain, the event will be cancelled via email and social media*
PlaceGrotto, Oude Warande 3,5036 NE  Tilburg
Time: 14:00 – 16:00
Register by: 19 October 2018 (Registration form below)
Cost: First drink is free!

The leaves have started changing colors and there is a park in Tilburg that is perfect for enjoying the sight: Oude Warande, near Tilburg University. We invite you to join us for a stroll through the forest and a relaxing drink at the cafe at the center of the park: Grotto.

The whole family, including the canine members, are welcome as there is lots of space to run, play, and kick around a ball or play fetch.

You are welcome to pull up a chair at Grotto or pack a blanket to spread out on the grass and open your own picnic basket with goodies from home. Either way you can order from Grotto’s menu. As always, the first drink is free for tíc members.

The Grotto is best reached by bike. There are parking lots at the edge of the park, but the cafe is not accessible by car.

We’re looking forward to an afternoon with friendly company in a gorgeous autumn setting!

The Museumkaart advantage

Not sure what to do with the kids during the fall break? Take them to one of the hundreds of unique, kid-friendly, inspiring and fun museums in the Netherlands!

The Museumkaart (museum card) is an annual membership card available to (temporary or permanent) Dutch residents which gives unlimited free entry to approximately 400 museums in the Netherlands – including 38 museums in Amsterdam.

Did you know that TIC organizes activities that feature museums within the Netherlands at least once or twice a year? Did you know that whether or not you are visiting a museum with TIC or on your own, you can gain entrance often at a reduced price or for free with the Museumkaart?

The Museumkaart card program (also known as the Museumjaarkaart or MJK) has been running since 1981 and now has over 1 million card holders.

Currently you can see highlighted museums that have special programs running just for kids on THIS page. Three well-known museums in Tilburg that are always great for the kids are De Pont, De Textielmuseum and De Natuurmuseum. With the Museumkaart, you can get in free to all three!

You can apply for a Museumkaart at museumkaart.nl (Dutch only).  You can also purchase a temporary (tijdelijk) Museumkaart over-the-counter at various museum (not all Dutch museums accept the Museumkaart); the list of museums can be checked on the website.

The following purchase prices are valid at least until 30 June 2018:
Adult Museumkaart €59.90
Child (age 0-18) Museumkaart €32.45

The card is great for the ability to just pop into a museum for 30 minutes and visit a new exhibition – and you won’t feel the pressure to see everything. Considering the current entry fees (€15-17.50) to get into each of the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Hermitage, Maritime Museum, NEMO and Stedelijk – means the card quickly pays for itself after just 4 visits. For expats and residents it can offer fantastic value over the whole year.
