- Mastbos is fairly Large forest bordering the city of Breda. It has many trails crisscrossing the Woods good for walkers, bikers and sports minded people . At times wild life can also be seenWritten 8 November 2018
- This the Breda’s main old town square populated by many cafés and restaurants. It’s very easy to find somewhere to sit and watch the world go by. It is situated next to Large Church Breda - Our Dear Mother Church and probably where most tourists will gravitate towards.Written 11 August 2020
- This museum is spacious, with friendly, helpful staff. Free entrance with the annual Dutch museum pass. The museum has two expositions on display: the permanent exposition about the history of Breda and a variable exposition; in the time frame of our visit this was an exposition about the village of Dongen and the various painters who got their inspiration there in the 19th century. This exposition is called "De heks van Dongen" (the witch of Dongen). After a quiet two hour visit, including a coffee in the museum cafe, I concluded that it was an instructive visit without highlights. Not a museum where queues are forming to see a famous exhibit, but nice enough for a visit when doing Breda.Written 27 October 2019
- If you like beer you have to visit this pub. Dutch people love to taste beer from all over the world. Here you can join, do a beer tasing and see a lot of special beer related museum stuff ;-)Written 26 September 2021
- We went here for dinner, not really for the gambling. The restaurant is truly excellent. We all had different dishes and every single one looked and tasted great. There is space to eat and watch the casino floor.
The casino is located in an old convent. It has been restored by the casino in a way that the additions can be undone. The games on the ground floor are in the former courtyard. There are many other areas which have a great atmosphere and are beautifully lit.Written 3 November 2019
- This castle is now the academy for the army and police (gendarmerie), closed to the public except on special occasions. The main building is the Brecht building, which is he oldest stone building in Breda also. Inside you can find paintings from the history of the country and the town.
At the entrance of the building some famous names are curved to the bricks, such as the commander of UN/Dutch troops in Srebrenica (Thomas Karremans). The graduates used to carve their names there, until it was forbidden.
There is a F16 fighter jet on the terrain and also a small chapel.Written 1 November 2017
- It's located in the centre of Breda and it is free admission. Must visit when you go to Breda! It is beautiful and worth visiting!Written 6 October 2018
- Very cute museum, helpful staff, addition fee only 3,50€ and you get a beverage for free, don’t need much time to spend, so if you are around...Written 5 October 2018
- Nice little walk around the gardens once I have found the entrench which is around the back next to the canal. Good mix of formal and cottage garden. Shame no coffee shop or way to see inside the castle. Gardens not open at weekends. Strange.Written 22 August 2017
- The watergate was built in 1610 some 20 years after a boat topped with peat but with rebels hidden in its hold succeeded in entering the Spanish occupied city. Slipping through a gap in the Spanish defense just north of the present gate happened in 1590 and led to the liberation of Breda. The city was retaken by the Spanish later, but eventually ended up in the hands of the Dutch.
The two towers are much older than the gate and date from 1530. The complex is still monopolized by the Dutch military and is not open to the public.Written 18 November 2018
- Amazing, green, stuffed with objets d'art. Great place, cool hangout for chilling in any kind of weather, very nice venues to be found here during the Breda Jazz Festival.Written 8 January 2019
