Living in Tilburg

Known as “the City That Moves”, Tilburg is a cosmopolitan city in the southern province of Noord-Brabant, near the Dutch border with Belgium. Tilburg is a university city, and with many Dutch and international students, there is an active social scene by day and night with sidewalk cafés and bars frequented by residents and students alike. The popular eetcafés, which serve alcohol and food, as well as the many restaurants within the city, contribute to a relaxed atmosphere. Summer brings festivals to Tilburg, including the Mundial and Dance Tour, but there are many quiet parks to enjoy as well. Tilburg celebrates its link to Willem II with his statue, and what is now the City Hall used to be a royal palace. InterNations, the global community of expatriates, is recommended to all expats living in Tilburg. Accessing the online forums will connect you with other international leading lights in education, commerce, business and industry and make it easy to find other expatriates living in Tilburg or in other Dutch cities.

Moving to Tilburg

Tilburg is served by several regional airports, including Rotterdam and Eindhoven, but Schipol Airport near Amsterdam and Dusseldorf Airport in Germany are the closest international airports. Intercity trains connect all major cities in the Netherlands, but will require a change of trains in ‘s-Hertogenbosch when travelling from Amsterdam. The E312 (A58) motorway connects Tilburg with Breda and Eindhoven. Buses operate throughout Tilburg, but the typical means of transport in the city is the bicycle, which is often also the quickest way of getting around. As such, an expat moving to Tilburg is recommended to invest in a bike on arrival, or to bring their own. Relocating to a new country can be quite daunting, even for an experienced expatriate but as a member of InterNations, networking will put you in touch with others who can offer useful advice and tips for your relocation to Tilburg. The InterNations’ Expat Magazine furthermore contains many articles on a wide range of topics relating to relocating to a new country and life abroad.

Working in Tilburg

The city is home to many international companies, including Fujifilm and Sony, which bring in many expats to work in Tilburg. The main employer, however, is the University of Tilburg, which also offers a significant number of courses in English and as such offers potential job opportunities particularly for native speakers. Tilburg is also a major distribution center due to its central position within the Benelux countries, and has a number of local industries, including textiles, brewing and chemicals. An expat working in Tilburg will find English is spoken by almost everyone in the city, making it easier for most expatriates to settle into the Netherlands. Additionally, the members of InterNations expat community offer friendship and support to fellow professionals working in Tilburg, and it is possible to find fellow expats living in Tilburg for social and business purposes.
