Welcome to Laarbeek
Just close by Eindhoven and Helmond is the municipality of Laarbeek, a young municipality that originated in 1997. Laarbeek is located at the intersection of the Zuid-Willemvaart and the Wilhelmina Canal. In addition, Laarbeek has, among other things, a brook area, several waterways, fens and pools, a canal, groundwater extraction area and the marina for visitors. Nature and water connect the four cores. In the themes of the villages, the rural character is linked by: 'Klokkendorp Aarle-Rixtel', 'Tuindorp Beek en Donk', 'Molendorp Lieshout' and 'Grottendorp Mariahout'. Laarbeek is therefore a real water municipality and is located on the edge of De Peel. It thus forms the gateway to this nature reserve. It is not without reason that Laarbeek is 'Waterpoort of De Peel'.
Laarbeek has all the ingredients for a fun day out: beautiful cycling and walking routes, many sights and attractive restaurants and cafes. During your visit to Laarbeek, take a look at the pigsties or pet newborn calves. Taste the organic sting products directly from the land. Laarbeek is also rich in cultural history. Take for example the beautiful castles, monasteries, chapels, mills, heem chambers, old towers and the building of the oldest bell foundry in the world!
