There are enough reviews and pictures to make up your option, but I want to add two items most of us did miss. Inside on the right you will find a small portion of a wall painting. I will not spoil what you will discover, but just please take your time to absorb it and imagine how it have been... More

St. John's is a Roman Catholic Cathedral right in the center of Den Bosch. I believe this may be the best example of gothic architecture in the Netherlands. It's free but please be respectful. Men: take off your hats. Women: cover your shoulders. Outside, there are shops & a nice café right next door. Just about everyone in the Netherlands... More

If you visit the city don't forget to visit the cathedral: it is nice and you can see a gothic architecture with interestings views outside (with many statues and tipycal architectural elements of gothic style) and inside (with very high structures, nice windows, ...). It is a nice cathedral.

This is a beautiful, light cathedral with a really lovely feel to it. Steeped in history but not over-powering. We were lucky enough to get tickets to go up and look on the roof at the amazing stone figures. We loved it AND there is even an angel on a mobile phone.

Saint John's Cathedral is THE landmark monumental building of Den Bosch aka 's-Hertogenbosch. It is of an overwhelming beauty, inside and out. When the sun throws colorful light on the stone floor tiles (shining through the stained glass windows), it is like a work of art. Never the same. This building deserves your visit and will not disappoint you!
