Breda : Michelin's recommendations
Located at the confluence of the Mark and the Aa, Breda was once one of the main strongholds in the country and the centre of a large barony. Today it is a dynamic town and a major centre for trade and industry. Making the most of its location on one of the main roads in the country, it is a welcoming stopover with vast pedestrianised zones, many parks and attractive surroundings ( the woods of Liesbos and Mastbos , the recreation park at Surae ).
