Welcome to the Municipality of Drimmelen

On this page we offer you some information about the Municipality of Drimmelen in the English language.

The municipality of Drimmelen is a large, rural area in western Noord Brabant. Its northern border encloses the National Park The Biesbosch (wetlands) and to the south its border is formed by the increasingly important Mark river.

The six towns and villages of Drimmelen, Hooge and Lage Zwaluwe, Made, Terheijden and Wagenberg are situated in a typically agricultural area in which nature and recreation are strongly represented.

The transport route Rotterdam-Breda-Antwerp forms the municipality’s western boundary.
The municipality of Drimmelen is part of the province of Noord Brabant.

The municipality of Drimmelen covers an area of 48 square miles. The six towns and villages are home to 27,000 inhabitants.

Made is, with its 12,000 inhabitants, the municipal centre. There are many sub-regional facilities in the areas of small to middle sized commercial enterprises, health and education.

The young and dynamic municipality of Drimmelen (created in 1997) is working towards a future in which nature, water sports, cycle- and hiking routes play a central role. The administrative organisation is equipped, and policy is in place, to strengthen and expand this position.
