De Wonderlijke Klim

Reviewed By vballfamily - Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

To celebrate the Jheronimus Bosch year, St John's Cathedral (Sint Janskathedraal) in Den Bosch has erected scaffolding to allow visitors an up-close look at the gargoyles and the flying buttresses of the Cathedral. The 96 medieval gargoyles were added as "weight" to the flying buttresses to solve some structural issues in the Gothic Cathedral. I've never been able to see the detail on a Cathedral this up-close. It's a unique experience and is only available thru October 2016.
€7 per adult allows you to climb the scaffolding and hear a brief description (spoken only in Dutch). They do provide pamphlets with descriptions of all the gargoyles. Elevator access is available for elderly and those incapable of the climb. To see both sides of the Cathedral you still need to be able to climb steps, but can see a good deal from the top of the platform if you cannot climb. They do limit the number of people in each group to go up. You must get tickets for an allocated time slot. I suggest buying tickets in advance, or going early to the church for the few tickets they hold back in reserve for purchase on the day.

Nationaal Monument Kamp Vught

Camp Vught National Memorial (Nationaal Monument Kamp Vught ) is located on part of the former SS camp Konzentrationslager Herzogenbusch, also known as Camp Vught (January 1943 – September 1944). The combined memorial centre and museum features various Exhibitions, a memorial room and wall of reflection. The museum is spread out over several buildings and outdoor areas. A model of the camp shows the extensive size of the camp and the many buildings it included. The watchtowers, which were built a hundred meters apart, have been reconstructed. The barrack, rebuilt at half the original size, shows how the prisoners lived. The Children’s Memorial lists the names and ages of the 1,269 Jewish children who were deported in June 1943. There is also an authentic crematorium. The texts accompanying the permanent exhibition are in Dutch. However, texts for temporary Exhibitions are often translated, e.g. 'Food in war time'. Audiotour available Dutch/English/German/French (€2,50); free parking.

This attraction was extremely well presented, and represented in detail. We opted for the handheld vocal tour- well with the extra money. We spent two hours here. Emotions would depend on your attachment to the War. Modern day parallels well tied in at the end of the tour.

Reviewed By W J - Jacksonville, Florida

My wife and I and sister recently returned from a trip to the Netherlands. We were on a tight schedule and had a number of places on "our list". We were fortunate enough to have discovered Stefka Waaijer through the company Tours by Locals. I had communicated with Stefka by email when planning the trip and had provided her with "the list" which included Keukenhof Gardens, the auction at Aalsmeer, pottery at Delft, and tulip fields. Stefka was wonderful and most receptive to the idea of a private, customized tour. She was responsive to my messages, prompt, and courteous. Without Stefka we would have never been able to see everything. We would recommend her without hesitation.

St. John's Cathedral

Reviewed By Christel8 - Bergen op Zoom, The Netherlands

This is a nice and huge Cathedral, you can even climb the tower if you like to. There are guided tours organized for those who wants to get some more details about this Cathedral.
During the Christmas period, part of the Cathedral is showing the scene of the birth of Christ: you will see lots of stuffed animals, persons wearing traditional clothes and finally of course the crib. Worth a visit.

Jheronimus Bosch Art Center

The body of work produced by Hieronymus Bosch can be found in museums and collections across the world. But the only place to find high-quality reproductions of all of his works is the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center in the city where the late-Mediaeval painter lived and worked his whole life. Come and admire the impressive exhibition set in a magnificent church building and you'll understand one visitor's summary of the experience: "I’ve learned a lot of Jerome Bosch. He is a great, and the most creative painter ever in history. This is a museum must see." Barely a quarter of an hour's walk from the station and just five minutes from St. John's Cathedral, this original and refreshing museum is home to all of Bosch's works and more. The reproductions can be found on the ground floor, while the other floors house collections of contemporary art, all inspired by Bosch himself. You can also take the lift to the very top floor of the tower for a fantastic view over the city.

Reviewed By Caspar v - Maastricht, The Netherlands

Jheronimus Bosch is one of the most famous artists of the Netherlands. He creatd an enormous quantity of paintings.
Much if his work, which is strongly related to religion, is shown in the Artcentre. It is certainly not a collection of original paintings, but copies also show very well, which themes Jheronimus wanted to show.
The exhibition is situated in a lovely former church.
In It pt you will also find a lift that brings you to a small viewpoint in the tower.

Safety Experience Center (rijvaardigheidstrainingen)

Reviewed By Henk-Peter-NL - Brunssum, The Netherlands

Bij dit opleidingsinstituut leer je beter auto te rijden. Men geeft diverse rijvaardigheidstrainingen met auto, vrachtauto, motorfietsen en auto/caravans.
In feite een aanvulling op het standaard rijbewijs. Je leert er uitwijkmanoeuvres uit te voeren tijdens noodstopsituaties. Praktijk vindt plaats op de zeer ruime slipbaan met verschillende onderdelen. Een prima combinatie van theorieles en praktijk.
Je rijdt met auto's (Mercedes A-klasse) van hen. Je hoeft dus niet met je eigen auto de baan op en loopt geen risico.
Catering is afhankelijk het gekozen arrangement. Gratis parkeren op het terrein van het Autotron, helaas geen laadpunten voor e-auto's.
Ook ideaal voor zakelijke meetings, het gebouw met diverse ruimtes is het voormalige 'huis van de toekomst'.

Noordbrabants Museum

Reviewed By Davor R - Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands

Currently, the Noordbrabants Museum has an exposition of the making of the "Loving Vincent" movie, the first animated movie where artists painted 26.000 frames, one by one. The storyboard and the mystery board are on display, wit example painted frames, video room and more. All with English texts or subtitles. If you have not seen the movie, it will not give you full value. You can purchase a combined ticket to see the movie first. An Oscar 2018 candidate? Maybe, as it is not for a wide audience.
Next to this, a large Tim Walker exhibition is staged of a project inspired by "The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch" with good printed guide to what-is-what.
On the first floor, there is an exposition of the Roam period, extended all the way back to the stone age, with some very interesting archaeological artifacts. It is a pity that this is not advertised on the web site, which by the way has an English version.
Last but not least, the museum has recently been extended with modern architecture ring within the old building, which nicely fits into the architecture, see one of the pictures attached.
All in all, it is worth a trip to Den Bosch if your are not there. It takes one hour by train from Amsterdam / Rotterdam or half an hour from Utrecht. The train station in Den Bosch is within a walking distance from the museum.

De Bossche Markt

Reviewed By BhawaniPathania - Mumbai, India

When you belong to the city that has a population which is more that 7 times of some countries, places like the De Bossche market come as a heart warming experience... seeped in history and tradition, the visit to the market has been a phenomenal experience. Historic shops, modern brands, Gothic architecture, food stalls...just too good. Would like to return if life permits...
PS..the lunch here at DIT is one amongst the best meal experiences..❤

Korte Putstraat

Reviewed By DeKokkies - Rossum, The Netherlands

The Korte Putstraat has an atmosphere that I haven't spotted anywhere else and certainly in the evening it's buzzing with activity, people eating and drinking on the terraces, whether it's summer or winter as all the terraces are heated. Good restaurants of all sorts available and the public is generally nice. Would recommend!
