    Shopping in Breda: Everything You Need

    by Nathalie_B Written Nov 24, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shopping in Breda is a great experience. Despite the fact that you can find all the major brands here, shopping in Breda is much cheaper than in other cities of the Netherlands. Every first Sunday of a month all the stores are open! Currently there are about 350 shops and 70 of them are located in the Shoppinng Mall called De Barones.

    De Barones in Breda

    Breda is a great place for shopping. There are a lot of car-free shopping streets around the Grote Markt and I also saw some malls. One of the biggest (I think) is "De Barones".
    Shops are open from 09.30h till 17-18h. On some Sundays during the year, the shops are also open from noon till 18h. These days are called "Koopzondagen". For the dates go to VVV Breda & Nieuws

    What to buy: Mostly fashion stuff.

    In the Netherlands I always find the records and CD stores very interesting. I could find here many CD’s that either hard to find in Finland or over charged, so I was happy with the selection here, especially with the Smiths, the Cure etc.

    The main entrance to the

    In the centre of Breda's shoppingstreets, this shoppingcentre has a historical name. "Breda" was not only a princes town, it also was the most important town with the area called the "Baronie". The centre houses a large variety in shops and is especially on rainy days a welcome dry place.

    The "Endstraat": Busy shoppingstreets

    Very busy on a Saturday afternoon

    Breda - like many larger towns in The Netherlands - has it's share in busy shoppingstreets. Centre of them is the "End straat", where a collection of the standard shops is located, that one finds in any mayor shoppingstreet within our small country.

    The "drie brug straten" (three bridges streets): Cosy shopping streets with funny shops

    Breda's three bridges streets, original shopping

    The cosier shoppingstreets are often leading away from the main shoppingstreets and "hide" funny shops that sell very original stuff. Always look for them in any larger towns ... that is ... if you like surprises.

    General Shopping Tip: A Bit Of Everything

    by johngayton Written May 22, 2013

    Not really my personal thing but I did note that Breda has more than its fair share of interesting little independent shops. Most of the city is pedestrianised, especially the streets radiating from the main square, but there are plenty of strategically-placed car parks on the periphery of the shopping area.

    Major Dutch stores such as Albert Heijn, Blokker and the department store 't Sas are represented, whilst the de Barones mall has over 50 individual stores in an interestingly-modernised building. One of the main streets, or should I say "sets of streets", for smaller shops is the Drie Brugstraten which is composed of Lange Brugstraat, Korte Brugstraat and Tolbrugstraat winding from the Grote Markt out to the canal belt at the old port.

    What to buy: Everything and anything (except Hoes ;-))

    What to pay: Whatever!

    The best shopping in the South!

    by tvdm Written Dec 11, 2002

    What to buy: You might not realise this, but Breda offers the best shopping facilities in the south of the Netherlands. Wholesome retail therapy is second to none and very accessible as most of the shops are located within the old city centre and along/around the Ginnekenstraat. If you take the bus, get off at the Oude Vest bus station and you can walk in any direction for some healthy wallet-emptying!

  • De Winkel van Nijntje: Nijntje

    by sabsi Updated Oct 21, 2003
    And I got a plastic bag, too!

    Nijntje (or Miffy in English) is a little rabbit and the hero of many kids..... and of myself! I knew the shop in Maastricht and at the meeting there I was dying to go there to get myself a new bag. The people didn't let me. So I was so happy when I arrived in Breda and Roy immediately "kidnapped" me to bring me to the Nijntje shop.

    What to buy: I finally got my bag.... but I'd rather have bought the whole shops. All the books, diaries, toys and clothes looked wonderful!

    What to pay: Lots!
