From cafés to culinary delights
For those who love discovering new culinary experiences, exploring Oirschot and the surrounding area is a must. In fact, throughout Oirschot you will find some wonderful hidden gems to enjoy a cup of coffee, an ice cream or lunch. Looking for a quick snack or perhaps an elaborate dinner? That is also no problem: right beside the market square with a view of the historic façades, or away from it all in an oasis of green. Be sure to sample the Oirschots beer from the Vandeoirsprong brewery in its industrial tasting room.
Delicacies & gifts
Fancy an afternoon of shopping? You will find several clothing boutiques, lovely specialty shops and delicatessens in Oirschot, as well as delightful gift shops that provide friendly service. Want to explore shops outside the market square? Be sure to take a stroll along Rijkesluisstraat heading towards De Poort. And in the city centre, parking is free and easy.
Strolling through the small alleyways and picturesque streets with historic façades, discovering quirky details or just having a casual chat with a resident. The relaxed and informal atmosphere is what Oirschot is all about. Keep your camera handy for the best Instagram-worthy streets. Please feel free to tag us with #visitoirschot.
