The city of Breda is located in the southern part of the Netherlands and, due to its fortification, it was of major military and political importance.  While the city has a fairy long history, it was not until 1252 that it obtained a municipal charter and thereafter had the right to construct fortifications.  Construction began almost immediately in the form of brick walls and Roman-style gates.  The city was eventually acquired, through marriage, by the Orange-Nassau family and this led to the influx of even more nobles and the increased prosperity of the area.  Today, we can see the long-term effect of this improved status and the tourism industry is one of the main beneficiaries.  The local B&Bs, hostels and hotels in Breda are constantly welcoming guests throughout the year. There are plenty of hotels in Breda and other types of accommodation in the city.  You can literally take your pick of hotels, B&Bs and even hostel accommodation in Breda if you prefer.
