Lovely to experience a cathedral in Holland still retaining most of it's Gothic splendours since it's in the very Catholic part of the country, namely Noord Brabant, seemingly not too damaged by the Calvinism fervour of the 16th/17th centuries, unlike the churches,cathedrals of northern Holland. Ceilings and windows are a joy to behold. Free entrance so can be marvelled by... More

This cathedral is worth a visit. The inside has a special chapel for the Holy Mary and the candles and flowers show how much people adore her. Her story is special too. There are people who can show you around and know the history of the church. On the outside is on top of one side of the roof an... More

Saint Johns cathdral is the most beautiful church in the Nederlands. Build in the great medieval city of 's-Hertogenbosch it's rich decorated exterior with many sculptures en statues is breathtaking. The interior is lush and let your mind meander into old times. There is a lot of ancient and modern art, the architecture is great and if your lucky the... More

The Cathedral of Sint Jan is the centerpiece of s'Hertogenbosch. I wish I had done the tour of the bell tower - the view must be impressive.

Really nice cathedral inside and outside. It is open for any visitors, so if you are in Den Bosch you can take some time to enter and see it,

Amazing cathedral. Wonderful artworks and chapels. Photos can't do justice to the scale of the building. A must visit

Entering the biggest cathedral of the Netherlands is really an astonishing experience. Entrance is free but for a small fee, there are additional tours in the bell tower or other tours. I can recommend it to anyone.

This Cathedral is beautiful from outside as well as inside. Once in you feel like have travelled back in time.. There is a saying, that you have to visit this Cathedral minimum twice in your life... You can not just see it once.. Visited in May / June 2008 n few months later.
