    Stanislaw Maczek was a Polish general who liberated Breda in 1944. He was made an honorary citizen of the city.

  • Surrounding area

    Tilburg Off The Beaten Path

    Not far from Tilburg (between Kaatsheuvel and Drunen) there is a very beautiful and exceptional area. It's part of a national park (2400 hectares). In summer and during the weekends many people go out there to have a stroll through the large dunes that are surrounded by woods. Only 25 kilometres from Tilburg! If you stay nearby and have a day off...

  • Castle

    Breda Off The Beaten Path

    Our guide a real "Bredanaar" (person who lived all his live in Breda) here in the picture, told us that this is the original castle door, in the old days it has two stairs beside each other, because when the bishop and the king went upstairs together there could be a large discussion about who let who go first, to avoid this discussion they build...

  • Pihilips Factory

    Eindhoven Off The Beaten Path

    The Philips Incandescent Lamp Factory of 1891 In the oldest Philips factory building an impression is given of how incandescent lamps were made over a hundred years ago. It is probably the only place in the world where you can see what went on in this branch of industry, which was very modern for those days. Whoever says Eindhoven automatically...

  • Ginneken / Bouvigne castle

    Breda Off The Beaten Path

    The neighborhood called Ginneken, south of the city centre, is a former village, annexed by the city of Breda after WWII. It's still has the village-type atmosphere, however. Tree-lined streets and a nice market square make it a nice neighborhood to stroll around, and the bars aren't as crowded and frequented by 'strangers' as in the city centre.

    Eindhoven Off The Beaten Path

    Harry Van der Heyden, artist: I was lucky enough to have Carin take me to her friend Harry's house. He was gracious and didn't mind Carin bringing a stranger from NJ to visit! He gave us a tour of his house and garden.. Better yet, he described the meaning behind many of his paintings and works of art. You can see some of his paintings in the...

  • Crazy local

    Eindhoven Off The Beaten Path

    When you're in Eindhoven you're likely to meet Arnol Kox who spends most of his days in the centre of the city and will want to talk to you (yes, you!) about Jesus and God and Important Stuff. Don't worry, he is very friendly, perhaps only a bit dificult to get rid of. You can recognize him by his beard and the pamflets he surrounds himself with....

  • Evoluon

    Eindhoven Off The Beaten Path

    Yes..this is a UFO! Not a real one of course..but this Ufo used to hold a free museum containing new technologies! Unfortunately, it's closed now..but the weird lights emanating from it at night make it still interesting. It's situated in a parc (with rabbits of course!), so you can take a nice walk and kiss under the moonlight..with E.T. watching...

  • Techn. University

    Eindhoven Off The Beaten Path

    Eindhoven as a VERY large university that specialises in Engeneering and IT. I tought it looked fairly nice. It's not built very high, but it's spreads in a behemoth campus. Walking around it can take at least 30 minutes. I would not consider the town as a University city (well..that's what my host said) but there is an area where most people that...

  • Graffitti

    Eindhoven Off The Beaten Path

    If you follow the bike paths, you'll end up in some sort of 'circle' under the level of the roads, where a few paths converge. There you will see grafiti. Even thought I'm not a fan of the usual vandalism found on some buildings, these areas are actually made much nicer to my opinion by these very colorfull and structured drawings which, if absent,...

  • Beer!

    Noord-Brabant used to be a true beer paradise. But Heineken managed to destroy most of it. Other big breweries followed the Heineken example. Bars will usually sport a Heineken or Amstel sign, indicating that they belong to the Heineken group (which often offers a few good Belgian beers too), others will say Oranjeboom or Dommelsch (which means...
