Oisterwijk is a hidden pearl which has been able to hide from the outside world for a long time. This is paradise on earth for those who enjoy the good life and the outdoors alike. Apart from that, a new fact has just been discovered. The geographic centre of the Benelux is in the municipality of Oisterwijk, just to the southeast of the village centre of Moergestel. The Benelux, an economic union of Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxemburg, was established in 1944.
