Great church in heart of Breda

Worth the trip if you are already in the area for a meal or shopping. Doesn't take long to walk through the church and the cost is donation only.

Had a wonderful personal tour with Jan. He had so much information on the history of the Kerk and also on Breda. He was interesting to listen to, because of his passion for the city and historic knowledge of the region.

Great church, impressive on the outside in a city that has lots to offer for the shopper and has lovely terrasses to have a bite or drink.

Grote Kerk is *the* landmark of the city center--you won't get lost if you navigate from there. It is also a very beautiful church. The artwork inside is wonderful, and the architecture truly makes one feel reverent while inside.

We were here in Breda for an afternoon orchestral concert and spent a couple of hours walking and enjoying some of the beautifully preserved, elegant streets in the shopping district, but the true cultural highlight outside of the concert was the visit to this church, which is a beautifully preserved historic relic. It feels, as if nothing has changed, the... More

This is a beautiful church in Breda, well worth a visit. One end of the church is dominated by a beautiful organ, with its enormous pipes stunningly decorated with gold figurines. Interior details, the sculptures and artwork are very impressive.

Must visit in Breda. It is a pity the access to bell tower is very limited. We understood wrong that bell tower is open for visiting from 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, but it was just AT 1:00 p.m. So it was too late at 1:40 already, and we missed it. Interior details and the very scale of the XV -XVI... More

Many Dutch cities seem to have a church as the centrepiece to their town and Breda is no exception. The main tower dominates the sky so we decided to have a look inside. One end is completely dominated by the organ with its massive pipes beautifully decorated with gold figurines. Around the rest of the church are amazingly ornate pieces... More
