Museums and attractions
‘s-Hertogenbosch is an attraction in itself. It was founded as fortified city and the heritage can still be seen all around the city today. However, there is also a more modern part of the city with architectural highlights worth discovering.
Climb St. Johns Cathedral, a national monument or visit the museum square. Not only for its two museums showcasing a range of art and culture, but also to enjoy a stroll in the garden. If you are looking for a different perspective take a tour on the river Binnendieze. It is also the best way to see the magnificent fortifications.
A must see venues is the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center, located in a former church. In this museum replicas of paintings by the religious artist Jheronimus Bosch are shown. Bosch remains the best known citizen of ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
