After exploring the country from Rotterdam, treat yourself to a quality break in the relaxing city of Breda, where each street takes you to another picture-perfect scene. Walking past serene lakes, colourful buildings and fairy-tale castles, you’ll never believe the historic tales of invasion, revolt and Charles II’s exile that have come to shape the city. As well as the intricate man-made structures which have stood for many hundreds of years, including the tower of the Grote Kerk that can be seen almost anywhere in Breda, the area also boasts incredible natural beauty. Head just a few kilometres south of the city and you’ll find Mastbos, one of the oldest pine forests in the country, which is just perfect for easy hikes with the whole family.
