Breda’s name derives from the confluence of the rivers Aa and Mark. Sitting in North Brabant, at the very south of the Netherlands, the city has a unique charm, which is particularly noticeable in the city centre. In 1252 the city gained its municipal rights and at the beginning of the 14th century was walled in. The streets surrounding the city were laid in an oval shape, common in old fortified cities.
Breda has the relaxed atmosphere common to the country’s southern cities: the Burgundian way of life. The city offers plenty of outdoor cafés, culture and nightlife. As the city hosts the academy of arts, young creative minds are in abudance. From the compact centre it’s a relatively short distance to the nature reserve Mastbos, which boasts lakes, heathlands and birds aplenty. So for architecture and nature alike, this is a great location to get away to.
