Welcome to the 'Rijk van Dommel en Aa'!
Come and enjoy the riches of Dommel and Aa, in the Eindhoven Region
The ‘Rijk van Dommel en Aa’ (Realm of the Dommel and Aa rivers) is the name for the countryside between the cities of Eindhoven and Helmond. Its function as hinterland to those cities is formalized in a joint policy of the seven respective municipalities. The aim of this joint policy and spatial vision is to conserve the much appreciated scenery, strengthen nature and stimulate recreational use.
As a result, the area has extraordinary recreational opportunities for inhabitants and visitors, offering not only beautiful and diverse nature, landscapes, monuments and historical sites, but also a range of cultural activities and sports opportunities, combined with a variety of restaurants, bars and other services offering you all you need for a pleasant stay. Among these services are the Gulbergen golf course, the Dierenrijk (Animal Kingdom) zoo and the Wolfsven bungalow park.
Rijk van Dommel en Aa, part of Brainport
The South-Eastern part of the Province of Noord Brabant in the Netherlands is of great importance to the Dutch economy. The region, known as the ‘Brainport Eindhoven’, was recently proclaimed The World’s Smartest Region (‘Intelligent community of the year’). It hosts many high-tech activities, including electronics, design, food processing, automotive engineering and medical technology. The Eindhoven Region Collaboration (a partnership of 21 municipalities, see elsewhere on this website) works to strengthen the economic value of the Brainport region, together with municipal, provincial and national governments.
In Brainport Eindhoven, several spatial and infrastructure programs, such as improving the highways around Eindhoven and Helmond, will further improve the conditions for businesses.
The region’s residents welcome you for a visit, and hope you decide to stay for a while or even make it your home.
