What do I need to know about living in Breda?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Breda, they said:

"Before retiring in Breda, expats should be aware that the cost of living is relatively high compared to other parts of the country. Additionally, the city is known for its vibrant nightlife and cultural attractions, so it is important to be aware of the local laws and regulations. Expats should also research the local healthcare system and make sure they have adequate health insurance coverage. Finally, it is important to familiarize oneself with the Dutch language, as English is not widely spoken in Breda," said one expat in Breda.
