Open Monuments Days

The opening weekend of BredaPhoto coincides this year with the Open Monuments Days on 8 and 9 September. In three locations Open Monuments Days and BredaPhoto meet each other: in the Koepel, Breda Botanique (the former Breda's Museum) and the Backer & Rueb and Puijfelik factories.

For two of these locations, BredaPhoto uses a specially reduced rate for those interested in monumental heritage during the Open Monuments Days. In the Koepel you will experience a special experience through the installation of Geert van Kesteren with a video wall with 27 screens and a soundscape, which was especially made for the Koepel. You can buy a Monuments Day ticket for the Dome at the entrance of the Koepel and costs € 6, – (normal price € 12, -).

Special photo exhibitions are also presented in the halls of the former factories Backer & Rueb and Puijfelik. Entrance tickets for these exhibitions are available at the entrance of Backer & Rueb and cost € 3, – each.

The festival heart of BredaPhoto Festival – Breda Botanique – with a cafe and BredaPhoto Shop and lots of fun activities can be found in the main building of the former Chassé Kazerne. Access to Breda Botanique is only possible with a BredaPhoto festival ticket, available at the Breda Botanique ticket office and on the BredaPhoto website.
