The other day we went on a sunny day on a trip to Breda. This Dutch city is not far from Belgium and is therefore the perfect getaway for a day away full of shopping fun, good food and sightseeing. Breda has been approved by us!


Breda is located just across the border from the Netherlands, close to Belgium. We drove to Breda for a short hour and that makes this the perfect trip for a day of fun abroad for the Belgians. And for the Dutch it is the perfect city for a day away in your own country! It’s a shame we’ve never been there before, because this is a really nice city!
