Welcome to the city of Hieronymus Bosch!


 

The townsfolk of ’s-Hertogenbosch always welcome visitors to their city with open arms and not surprisingly, ’s-Hertogenbosch has been awarded the title of “Most Welcoming City in the Netherlands” for four times in a row (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013)! This city is famed for its charm and hospitality.

The city of ’s-Hertogenbosch guarantees an unforgettable short break. 

One of the oldest medieval cities in the Netherlands still bustles with activity today against its gorgeous historical backdrop. 

Full of culture and annual events from classic to pop and from fine arts to dance festivals. 

The two main museums in The Museum Quarter, renovated and re-opened in 2013 and are already called “the Guggenheim of the Netherlands”. 

Plenty of waterways to give you an entirely different perspective by floating under the fortified city. So take a cruise on the picturesque Binnendieze. 

Many great historical monuments, including cathedrals, the city’s fortifications and courtyards. The cathedral of Saint John is the pinnacle of Gothic architecture in the Netherlands and has an extensive and richly decorated interior. 

A very hospitable city with plenty of pavement cafes and excellent shopping. 

In 2016 the city of ’s-Hertogenbosch will celebrate the 500th anniversary of Hieronymus Bosch’s death.

Bosch (ca. 1450-1516) was one of the most famous and sought after artists of his time. He was admired for his masterful stroke, his unusual iconography and his highly complex and individual style. Even today he is highly regarded by a broad range of artists and is a great source of inspiration to many others. 

In 2016, the city where he was born, raised and worked his entire life, ’s-Hertogenbosch
will commemorate the 500th anniversary of his death with the National Jheronimus Bosch Event! 

A once in a lifetime opportunity and perfect reason to organize your incentive or (group)travel to the city of Den Bosch!
