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.

The wonder host apparantly had blood seeping out of it. When testing it further more blood seeped out of it. The art work has a depiction of this wonder host. Admission is free (donations welcome). This part is of interest to history buffs.

Again only for historic minded Tourists is it interesting. It reveals the connection of the family of orange withe Breda It is (i must admit) a very beautiful church (museum) which you surely must have been inside when you are in Breda. Climbing the tower for a great view and a perspective on the game clock.

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.

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.

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.
