Schijndel (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈsxɛindəl] (listen)) is a town and former municipality in the southern Netherlands, in the province of North Brabant.

Schijndel was founded on 6 December in the year 1309.[citation needed] On 1 January 2017 Schijndel, together with Veghel and Sint-Oedenrode, merged into a new municipality called Meierijstad creating the largest municipality of the province North-Brabant in terms of land area.[3]

Trivia[edit]

In the 2010 film New Kids Turbo, the city is hit by a huge bomb that was originally intended to destroy neighboring Maaskantje. Finally, in the sequel New Kids Nitro, a bitter fight rages between a group of young men and a woman from Schijndel and a group of young men from Maaskantje. This also brought Schijndel to the attention of New Kids fans, who had previously almost exclusively traveled to Maaskantje to visit locations from the series and the films.
