Working in Heijningen, living in Breda???

by Manuel_Flotech

Hi all,

we are a company from New Zealand and we are establishing an entity in the Netherlands.

My Boss gave me the job to arrange for crew accomodation and car.
Daily work will be in Heijningen and Dinteloord.

I have just arrived in Heijningen on Monday (living currently in a hotel in Willemstad).
I am still figuring out where our new company appartement should be. I am curently looking into Breda and Roosendal. I am looking for a 4-bed room appartement.

I would like to get some input from the community on where would you recommend to stay.
What we expect:
- max 30-40 mins drive to and from work
- quite some pubs for socialising
- good train connection to and from company appartment from major Airport

I would highly appreciate any input, links, etc..
Also in regards to car leasing, buying, etc

Thanks in advance for you help.

Cheers,
Manuel

- quite some pubs for socialising
- good train connection to and from company appartment from major Airport

I would say Breda should be your first choice indeed:
- That half hour drive is about what to expect; you might have to take some inner roads during rush hours
- Some pubs; Breda has close to 1000
- Good train connections. Fast service to Schiphol Airport (70 minutes) via Rotterdam.

For the first half year I would recommend a car lease contract. In that time you can see if buying is an option; you probably have to get a Dutch drivers Licence within 3 monyths. (insurance, road tax, servicing and yearly inspection have to taken care of).

This is almost my neck of the woods (south-west Netherlands).

Other options under 30 minutes drive, traffic-permitting:

Rotterdam/Barendrecht/Ridderkerk (the last 2 are really bordering on Rotterdam on the south side and well connected to Rotterdam by public transportation)
Roosendaal (nearest)
Bergen-op-Zoom
Dordrecht

Bergen-op-Zoom is a bit like Breda in atmosphere (pubs, nightlife, historical buldings). Have a look at my B-o-Z page if you like.
Same goes for Dordrecht.

The point is: traffic. Roosendaal or Bergen-op-Zoom (both within 35-52 mins by train from Rotterdam Central) have the best cards. It's the A16 you don't want to be on during rush hour (if you choose Breda or Rotterdam). Mind you, rush hour is heavy and long, twice a day. The A16 connects Rotterdam to Antwerp (Belgium).

If you have a car you may want to look into nearer places that have no station.
Dinteloord, Steenbergen, Oudenbosch may be options too.

Travel Tips for Breda

A BIT ABOUT BREDA

by LoriPori

A city in the southern part of The Netherlands, BREDA was a fortified city of strategic significance. In the 15th century the city's importance grew rapidly. A great Church was built in Brabantine Gothic style, called the Grote Kerk or Onze Lieve Vrouwe Kerk (Church of our Lady).
Interesting tourist sites include Spanjaardsgat, Begijnhof (Beguinage), Beyerd and Kasteel Bouvigne, a 17th century castle located in the Mastbos, the woods just outside Breda.

Breda Jazz Festival

by Joenes

Every year in May the centre of Breda turns into the biggest outdoor jazz festival in the world for 4 days and nights.There are lots of stages where jazz artists from all over the world play their hearts out.
It is always well visited by both locals as people from all around the world.
For some odd reason we always seem to have the luck of good weather during the festival.
This absolutely one of the greatest things to experience in The Netherlands!!!!

Breda Tip

by Natas

What I like the most about Breda is the market place in front of the beautifull cathedral. All nice cafes and bars are situated on the Grote Markt. Have a seat at one of the so many little bars. You can even have diner, because a lot of restaurants are located just next to all of these bars.

Breda Tip

by empheron

Atmosphere. I moved back to Breda because it is a city that fits me like an old jeans. Comfortable, cozy, and you never get bored of it because it gets better while the years pass.

If visit, do it during the Jazz Festival. Beats New Orleans every time!

Quiet and clean streets

by Helga67

It was remarkable that, although the streets in the centre were filled with shoppers, just around the corner of the Grote Markt in the direction of the beguinage, the cobbled streets were so quiet and empty, and with lovely good maintained houses. It was so relaxing to walk these streets after the busy centre.
