Romantic; Among nature
The municipality of Alphen-Chaam has everything for tourists: a rich history, water, forests and heaths. You can go for wonderful hikes in the vast forested areas via the numerous hiking and biking trails of varying lengths. You can also go on all-day excursions and enjoy picnics at one of several designated areas. Or lounge around at the large recreational area complete with swimming pools, play pond, beach and lawn. There is also a large community pool at your disposal. Alphen-Chaam is also a good starting point for trips to neighboring cities like Breda and Tilburg, or the nearby town of Baarle-Nassau/Hertog. Other ideas for excursions include the amusement park of Efteling, the "Land van Ooit" and "Beekse Bergen". Then there's the "Het Broek" nature reserve located between Chaam and Ulvenhout. This is a reserve which has been set up in such a way as to not disturb the birds. In the western part of the community you will find a few farms which are scenic and culturally valuable. These include Anne Villeneuve, famous for being the temporary residence of Queen Wilhelmina during the liberation of May 1945, and Hondsdonk. In Alphen there is a regional museum with a large collection of archaeological objects and various crafts from the beginning of the 20th century. You will also find detailed information regarding visits to the grave mound near Kwaalburg and the cemetery of the "Boslust".
