A lot of churches are dark and have a cold feel to it. Not this one. It looks as amazing from the outside as it does from within. You can walk around and see all the old tombs, the the beautiful coat of arms of Breda is a true bliss for everyone who loves this city.

The architecture of this 96 meters high church is amazing. Seeing the details on the outside, there are even cannonballs are still visible from the outside.
Worth the visit!

Breda is one of the older Dutch towns with a lovely old center, with some interesting momuments such as the begijnhof, the watergates, the military academy and the big old church (Grote Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk). This is one of around 10 old Dutch churches that is really worth to visit. What is nice about this church is the decorated organ, the partly painted ceiling and the various grave monuments of which the ones of Engelbrecht 1 and 2 of Nassau really stand out!, you won't see many of these in The Netherlands or anywhere else.

What also is nice is the Prinseschapel with the painting of Jan van Scorel.

Like many of the Dutch Churches nowadays this one is also no longer used as a church, but instead it is used for exhibitions, fairs or concerts.

For those who want to visit an admittance fee needs to be paid, but it is worth it!. Also check out which day the tower is open, because on those days you will have a great view on the old town.

Very nice church, surrounded by nice pubs and all kind of shops.
The church has a webcam so you can wave at the people at home!

The building has some history to tell, but if you have a chance toclimb the tower and see the carillion and the view please do!
