Where Willem Merkxtuin 26
In 1984, Ir. Willem Merkx retired as mayor of Breda. It was his wish to turn the wasteland behind the court houses at the Catharinastraat into a beautiful garden. As a farewell gift, the people of Breda offered him this sculpture garden. From the Merkxtuin you have a nice view of the back of the patrician houses in the Catharinastraat. The garden is open between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and is free of charge.
On market days, It is also a great place to listen to the carillon of The Grote Kerk at 11 a.m.
The Willem Merkxtuin has two entries:
- Gate next to Publieke Werken diner (St. Annastraat 12)
- Gate between Catharinastraat 24-26
