The Netherlands

A trip to Breda is a day full of fun

Trip to


The other day we went on a trip to Breda on a sunny day. This Dutch city is not far from Belgium, making it the perfect getaway for a day packed with shopping, fine dining and sightseeing. Breda has been approved by us!


Breda is located just across the border from the Netherlands, near Belgium. We drove just under an hour to Breda, making this the perfect excursion for a day of fun abroad for the Belgians. And for the Dutch, it’s the perfect city for a day out in their own country! Too bad we had never been there before, because this is a really nice city!
