The Pleasures of Living in Breda as an Expat

An enchanting Dutch city built on the confluence of the rivers Mark and Aa, Breda was once a much-contested strategic target during various medieval territorial disputes. Its modern history is much more peaceful, and today the city is a cheerful, welcoming hub of culture, business and trade in the Brabant region. Many major international companies have established their head offices in Breda, with a particular focus on food production and the services industries. The city is also host to the Royal Netherlands Air Force, and attracts many international students to the University of Applied Sciences. With excellent links to the major port cities of Antwerp and Rotterdam and with English a widely-spoken second language among the local populace, Breda is a well-connected and good-natured location that should be a serious consideration for anyone considering a new life in the Netherlands.
