This gorgeous church in the middle of the city is iconic. You can see it as the train approaches Breda. The interior is kept pristine and light. Best part is it's free (you can make a donation if you like).

If you history and learning about the areas you visit, this is a must-see. The audio tour gives you the highlights as it’s only 30 minutes or so. It’s still worth a listen, and at only €3, it’s worth it.

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.

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.

Great church, impressive on the outside in a city that has lots to offer for the shopper and has lovely terrasses to have a bite or drink.

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.
