City of Breda

Breda is a medium size city in the province North Brabant, in the south of the Netherlands, near Belgium with over 170,000 inhabitants. It is a very cozy and social city, partly due to the large number of students that live here. In its historical city centre, crowned best inner city of Holland in 2009, you’ll find lots of interesting architecture and cultural delights.

The locals generally consider Breda as the best in history, art, shopping and nightlife. It is a hub for culture in the Netherlands. The city of Breda is lively in comparison to the other cities of equivalent size in the surrounding areas. Breda boast one hundred and twenty two bars, eleven museums, one hundred and seventy restaurants and one hundred and thirty eight shops and boutiques.

Breda is within easy and quick reach of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Antwerp (Belgium) by high speed trains.

A sparkling and historical city with a cheerful “southern” personality, that’s Breda. The south of Holland “below the big rivers”, is generally regarded as a region with a more “loose” lifestyle than the north of the country. Carnival for instance is a big thing here. Historically this can be explained by the fact that the south of the Netherlands uses to be predominantly Catholic, whereas the north had a Protestant majority.

In a student city like Breda, you will make many new friends in no time. There is a vivacious student society and numerous fraternities and sororities, which organize a wide variety of activities. The combination of its rich history and numerous present-day activities makes Breda an inspiring city! The city's charming historical centre is not that big (it's easy to find your way around), but very cozy and lively and students love it.
