Oudenbosch - With the corona crisis on its way, Visit Halderberge and Ticketcounter are launching a new ticketing platform for museums and attractions in the Halderberge municipality. Unique because guests can book a day out here one-stop-shop.
Recreational municipality in the heart of West Brabant
Halderberge consists of the towns of Oudenbosch, Hoeven, Bosschenhoofd, Oud Gastel and Stampersgat. With major crowd-pullers like the Basilica of Saint Agatha and Barbara and the Arboretum botanical garden, Halderberge attracts more than 100,000 visitors annually. Since many attractions are visited in combination, there was a need for a system that caters for these possibilities. Ticketcounter offers a total solution for VisitHalderberge's ticketing needs with the Combishop.
Seven partners connected, expansion possible
Initially, the Basilica, the Arboretum, Observatory Tivoli, Dutch Zouave Museum, Natural History and Ethnology Museum and Visit Halderberge will use the ticketing system with city walks. Other museums may join at a later stage. That too is possible within this cooperation.
The corona crisis as an opportunity
After a tough year for the attractions and hospitality industry, Visit Halderberge is seeing growing interest in domestic holidays and trips, including in West Brabant. Wim Hofstede, responsible within Visit Halderberge for the cooperation with Ticketcounter: "This region has a lot to offer, from the heritage in Halderberge, the Zuiderwaterlinie and Van Gogh in Zundert and Etten-Leur to Klimbos, Snowworld, Skydive and parachuting at Breda Airport. This region is so versatile, the rest of the Netherlands will realise this in the coming years. With Ticketcounter's ticketing solution, Halderberge is taking a big step in the digitalisation of its offering. Guests want booking convenience, also during a holiday in their own country. We are responding to that now so that we are ready for everyone who is going to discover their own country."
Waiting for perspective
The ticketing system is in the starting blocks. As soon as it is clear when which attractions will open. Will tickets and tours be bookable in the ticket shop. "Together with our partners, we hope to have perspective this month. Precautions have been taken at all locations to be able to open in a safe and responsible manner, without compromising the quality of the visit."
