Events and recreation

Helmond has a many-faceted cultural and sports life. Think about the theatres 't Speelhuis, the new Scalazaal and the Annatheater. Or go to the Cacaofabriek to see a movie, or a concert. At Berkendonk you can do all kinds of water sports, or go there in the summer for sunbathing and swimming.


After Helmond was granted city rights around the year 1232, the textile industry in particular developed at a rapid pace. Later on, the metal industry also flourished in the city.

Language courses

The Language House is at the library at the Watermolenwal 11. There you can ask questions and get information about language and language courses and get help in finding a 'language mate'.
