Eating & drinking
In the bustling inner city of Den Bosch, there are countless shops, cafés and restaurants jostling for space. The city’s restaurant street is near the semi covered Binnendieze river, which flows through the center. The Bossche Bol (chocolate covered choux pastry) is one of the delicacies served in Den Bosch. You should try it!
Den Bosch is a fortified city that has retained its medieval character. In many places, you can still sense the glorious past. The city walls and fortifications of the fortified city of ‘s Hertogenbosch were built in the 16th and 17th centuries. Virtually all of its fortifications have remained intact. Two rivers flow through the city: the Dommel and Binnendieze rivers.
Highlights of Den Bosch
The Gothic St. Janskathedraal (Saint John’s Cathedral) draws a huge crowd. Yet the city has much more to offer.
