Breukelen is one of many charming towns on the river Vecht, in the north-west of the province of Utrecht. The banks of the Vecht are lined with monumental country estates and castles, several of which are located within Breukelen’s town limits. Did you know that Brooklyn in New York got its name from Breukelen? One of its main sights is Nyenrode Castle, home to Nyenrode Business Universiteit.
