“Stunning!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

There are many awesome cathedrals in Europe and this is certainly one of them. A must see if you go to Den Bosch. Spectacular windows and a beautiful pipe organ.

“Working, up to the stretch reconstructed Church”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Seeing this cathedral from up the top of the Bosch's Art Centre, of course I wanted to go inside as well, it was very impressive outlook. Before going in, my friends and I had a light lunch across the street from the Sint-Jan; unfortunately I do not remember the name of the cafe - they deserve 5* for their panini with Brie and salad.
Official name is The Cathedral Basilica of Sint-Jan the Evangelist-'s-Hertogenbosch; it celebrated it's 800th anniversary in 1985 and the major restoration works completed in 2019. Beautiful gothic, beautiful chapels, altars, works of art. Go and visit - you will not regret!

“In Awe!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is a true work of art. The amazing detail in this church is simply amazing. There is actually an angel carved in the top of the church holding a cell phone. There is a sign that says you can call in a prayer for .80 euros. The inside of the church is equally inspiring. It looks like there are tombs within the floor of former priest that served here...

“Must see in Den Bosch”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

By far the most beautiful cathedral in the Netherlands. Take the stairs to the top as a tour for some good stories and a nice view.

“Definitely the most beautiful Cathedral in the Netherlands”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

A beautiful place of worship, with a chapel to the Sweet Lady of Den Bosch inside. A Roman Catholic Church with all the icons of saints, beautiful stained glass windows, giant music organ with great acoustics, definitely a site worth visiting. Den Bosch is just an hour away by train from Amsterdam, but the difference is awesome, from the crowded city to the quaint little town with a pretty square. The church is still an active Catholic Church where we were able to attend mass in Dutch.
