    Favorite thing: Fontys: high degree of art and creativity

    Journalist, visual artist, teacher, dancer, sports economist, musician, communications expert; Fontys in Tilburg offers a colourful palette of educational opportunities.
    my daughter Sanne studied at Tilburg.
    for students: Surfing the web to take a peek at what's going on in Tilburg? After all, you want to get more out of your time at University or College... You want to have some fun, too, and live decently.

    http://study.tilburg.nl/

    The proportion of creative subjects is high. Consequently, the atmosphere is different to that at other Schools of Higher Vocational Education. This year, Fontys is even offering rock music as a subject at the only Rock Academy in Europe.
    Fontys Colleges is the largest teaching organization for Higher Vocational Education in the Netherlands with courses in economics, education, health care, art, technology, and community care. The varied Fontys educational courses fit in perfectly with the new image of Tilburg. The modern industrial city is not only concerned with employment and industry, but also with well-being and culture. Fontys has splendid academies in these fields, such as the Academy of Visual Arts, the Brabant Conservatoire, the Fontys Dance Academy, The Academy of Architecture and Urban Development, the Academy of Creative Arts, and the Academy of Journalism and Information.

    Rent a bike

    by OlafS Updated Oct 27, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Rent a bike (or a car if you insist) and visit some of the nice old villages in the area. Oirschot is an absolute winner here, with a few very special churches and monumental buildings (see the picture!). Hilvarenbeek is always worth a trip too. Visit Oisterwijk the first sunday of July, for the best beer-festival in the Netherlands.

    Fondest memory: The view from my flat. To the west I could see the tower of the Great Church of Breda, to the east I saw the church of Oisterwijk. Not to forget the view I had over Tilburg itself.

    Oirschot: church St. Petrus' Banden

    Favorite thing: Visit some of the many catholic churches, that date from the 19th or early 20th century.

    Fondest memory: Often these buildings in neo-styles are fine examples of brick architecture. On the picture you can see the large church on the Heuvel, the city´s central square.

    Favorite thing: On the Rubens Square in Tilburg I pictured this!

    Fondest memory: This is one of the many common squares of Tilburg. Normally they're nothing special, but here, the residents decided to cheer the place up by copying Rubens' paintings on the wall. What a great idea!!!

    Purchase your tickets, the earlier the better

    by steedappeal Written Feb 3, 2008

    Favorite thing: I was fortunate to buy my tickets at the ticket window before hanging out with my friend. By the time I returned (around 10 pm) the ticket window had closed. I don't know if you could purchase tickets on board with a credit card (with possible surcharges?) so I was glad to buy in advance.

    Look at the brick architecture

    Fondest memory: This school was built in the style of the famous Amsterdam School of architecture. It has its own Tilburgian element too: the typical roman catholic cross on the top!
