Lovely church situated in the downtown area of Breda. The surrounding streets have lots of restaurants / pubs / shopping mall plus stores. You can find paided parking for vehicle in the surround lots, which are just a short walk for the church.

A lot of restaurants to choose from, lively terraces and pubs. Just 5 minutes from the park, this seems to be Breda's social pole. The church itself is spectacular!

The Grote or Onze Lieve Vrouwe kerk is the icon of Breda, my home town. After travelling, when I come back, and see the majestic church tower, it immediately has this feeling of 'coming home'. Compared to big cities as Sydney, London, New York, it might be small, but if you are in Breda, there is no reason at all... More

I have visited many churches/cathedrals all over Europe and this church certainly looks equally impressive from the outside, but it does not compare to others I have seen on the inside. It is basically free but there is a 1 Euro donation suggested. Unfortunately I was not in town on a Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday so I was not able... More

The Grote of Onze Leieve Vrouwekerk in one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The chathedral is bigger than it looks in the pictures and has many details which will interest every art lover's eye. Moreover, in every half an hour there is played a beautiful song and it's a free entrance. Inside the Cathedral, people can... More

I've been so lucky to visit this beautiful church on "Open BREDA" event, when everything in town was free and open for everybody to visit. This amazing church is a must see in Breda, it's full of history and great short stories that, even after a long time, they appear to be real. it's mandatory to request a guide tour,... More
