Health & Safety

Tilburg is a safe city for both residents and  tourists, but you should watch out for pickpockets and shady street sellers. Don’t leave your belongings unattended. In other words, just use common sense. Tilburg supports a group of addicts and homeless people who sell the Zelfkrant, a homeless newspaper, which is collectively published in Tilburg, ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Arnhem. The newspaper is published in Dutch, but your €1.50 purchase will support these two neglected groups. And in the long term, you may either create a better future for the guy selling it (or buy his next drink or shot). It's up to you and him.
