Drunen is a town with a population of 18,000 in the municipality of Heusden in the southern Netherlands. Drunen is part of a region called the Langstraat (`long road`) which is historically known for its leather and shoe industry. Since 1813, Drunen was a separate municipality, consisting of the towns Drunen, Elshout, and Giersbergen. The center of Drunen is a plaza surrounded by the Sint-Lambertuskerk and city hall. Furthermore, there are some pubs and stores in the middle of town. Drunen was heavily shelled by British Forces in late 1944 in the days prior to liberation and its main buildings were heavily damaged or destroyed outright. In consequence, there are few historic buildings. Recently the downtown area, including the plaza, has been modernized. Drunen is internationally known for the Loonse en Drunense Duinen, a National Park consisting of dunes and forests that attracts many tourists. Tim visited the Loonse en Drunense Duinen in the summer of 2014.
