In earlier days, the city park of Breda had a tea house. But the courtyard and garden at that time, where this tea house was located, were not public and only local nobility could come and drink tea. The original tea house was replaced for a music kiosk, and a pavilion, which in time, also disappeared. In 2002 a new modern tea house was built, the 'T-huis', open for all to enjoy the park and free to visit. Dutch artist and architect John Körmeling has designed a transparent building on a red concrete carpet, with a large canopy. On the roof he placed large neon words, like 'ice' and 'whipped cream'. In 2004 this design won the architecture prize of Breda.
Daily from 10:30 - 18:00 hr. There are about 40 seats in the interior, and 60 more on the outside terrace. You can also rent the place for meetings, diner or a party, and the opening hours will be adjusted.
How to get there?
The T-house is situated in the Valkenbergpark, which is in-between the train station and the city center. It's about 2 minutes walking from the station. Call them at +31(0)76 5151820 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
