“Organ of Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

It is really magnificent Cathedral. We managed to be there on Sunday shortly before Sunday worship. When organ started to play I was completely astonished - sound was soooo massive and "clean". Really worth visit.

“renewal after recent make-over”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

It is nearly impossible to write about the magnificent Cathedral. One needs a week to study it and one might not have finished it. On the last day of May iwas also full of pelgrims for the Sweet Mother of Den Bosch, a statue of H. Mary. I will include pictures and you wll understand

“Just to light a candle...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

Whenever I visit my Provence of Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands, I always make sure to visit the cathedral the St. John in the city of s'Hertogenbosch.

The St. John is a very interesting Cathedral with lots of history! You can go up in the tower to
look over a big part of "Noord-Brabant!"

Besides all that, it is just very nice to light a candle also and reflect on the story of life!

“Impressive on the inside and on the outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This cathedral is really beautiful, It's a Gothic church with colorful windows.
You really have to see the statue of Mary," the sweet mother of 's-Hertogenbosch ".
All through the town you'll see small statue's of Mary in the doorway's.
You'll find her chapel on the left hand side of the entrance. The centerpiece of the cathedral is the altar that was placed here about 20 years ago. Not everyone is happy with the arrangement, but the bishop of 's-Hertogenbosch seemed to like it.
Another must visit is the Bell tower. it offers a nice view of 's-Hertogenbosch and it's surroundings.
If you have the chance to visit the "bouwloods" where they keep original parts of the cathedral and show how the cathedral was built, you should visit that as well.

“Top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The most beautiful cathedral of the Netherlands is located at the square called The Parade.
If you can you must climb the tower and have a look over the old city of 's-Hertogenbosch.
Also have a look during christmas times to see the most beautiful christmas crib of the world.
