“Beautiful church”

St. John's Cathedral
Ranked #1 of 60 things to do in Den Bosch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Magnificent architecture almost hidden just out of the town centre. This grand building is worth a visit, then wander up to the town square for a coffee and "bosche bolletje" . Magic way to spend an afternoon.

It's really amazing to see how such old building can be built so grand. Unfortunately when we try to go in, it's always close and we're not sure when it's open. But even from outside, you can feel amaze.

Vaulted ceilings, immense stained glass windows--all in remarkable shape. There was a special exhibit surrounded with masses of flowers and candles on the day we visited. There is no charge to visit the church, but the atmosphere is more that of a tourist attraction rather than a place of worship. There were lines of people waiting to visit the tower.

Although I am not religious, I love huge churches because of the impressive architecture, the wonderful interior and the relaxed atmosphere. So I enjoyed the Vatican in Rome, the Notre Dame in Paris and the cathedral in Seville. Today it was a bit smaller scale with the St. John's cathedral (close to the recommended Jeroen Bosch Art Center) but both outside as inside, this is a wonderful and impressive church. Especially inside: the stained glass, the huge columns, the wooden interior, the church organ, the coloured painting on the top of the ceiling and the Jeroen Bosch painting. An older aged volunteer told us about the history of the church and the church organ (made out of special seasoned wood), very interesting. Highly recommended!

We didn't take much time to visit, but we will certainly be back next time we're in Den Bosch. The cathedral is massive and deserves a lot of attention. But I guess it should be visited guide in hand to find out about the knots and bolts.
