    Bits of wall

    by OlafS Updated Sep 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Breda's strategic position in the 17th century lead to its fortification and, as a result, the demolition of its medieval walls and towers. In several places parts of these are made visible by adding extra layers of brick to the remains of the foundations. What you see is not really old, it's just an indication of old shapes. In case you wondered.

    If you are not afraid come on and get in the rollercoasters! The python goes rather fast, has a corkscrew and makes a loop. The Pegasus is more easy, it's doesn't have a loop, but still is fast for a wooden rollercoaster.

    Visit the castle of ghosts. It takes ten minutes to watch a performance you won't forget soon. In the castle is something behind the glass. The lights will go out and the show begins...more is to be found in my TRAVELLOGUE!

    You must see the Fata Morgana attraction. You can get in by walking the stairs. Inside are boats. When you get in a boat just watch and be amazed. First picture: Fata Morgana from the outside. Second picture: Kim and me, behind us is Fata Morgana.

    The Grote Markt is the real centre of the city. This large square concentrates the main buildings: the Grote Kert, the Townhallm het Wit Lam (the house of the white lamb) and many other old guilder houses.
    Of course, the market is still held here nowadays.

    162,000 people live in Breda. Most of them are very happy there. They live, work and study there. They shop, go out for an evening. To the city centre, the shopping and night life centre of the region. Every saturday some 70,000 people wander around the shops in town. You too? If the crush gets too much, you can find a peace and quiet in the Begijnhof on Catherinastraat. Beautifully preserved and retored. You can almost see the nuns still silently passing by. An oasis of calm.....right in the heart of the city.

    Of course the big church, you can climb to the tower and have a nice view at the city. Spanjaardsgat (picture)Built because of the Spanish occupation about 400 years ago. 'T Ginneke is a suburb that still has the character of the village it once was; there are nice pubs and restaurants.
    Furthermore: Valkenberg Park, Mastbosch Forrest, Museums, churches, mills in some suburbs, KMA etc. There is a tourist office on the Grote Markt and one near the station.

    Walloon church was founded around 1429 and was originally the chapel of the adjacent beguinage. Later it was used by Wallonian and French protestants, hence the name.

    Droomvlucht is really marvellous! I wanted to see this again and again, unfortunately a lot (really a lot!) of people had the same idea. I couldn't wait that long (1.5 hours) before getting in again.
