Travel Tips for Den Bosch
The Dragon Statue
If you travel by train, this statue will be the first thing you see once you got out of the train station.
Den Bosch has it's nickname "The Dragon of Marshes", that's why you see the golden dragon monument there.
The staue is very impressive, apart from the golden dragon on the top you'll find another 4 at the bottom of it, which are also fountains.
Enchanting historical ambience fills Den Bosch
The major highlight of our visit here was the tour of the river canal under Den Bosch. There there is much to see and the ambience while walking about or sitting at the cafe or pub is something I hope not to forget.
A city walk through Den Bosch can be done in around two hours. It is very recommendable to get the city walk brochure for only € 1,60 at the tourist information desk (VVV) on the Markt square. The two things you should really pay more attention to are the St. Jans Cathedral and the Binnendieze. Make sure the first thing you do is to make a reservation for the Binnendieze to guarentee you have seats on the boat. Do the 2 hours walk then and finish at the St. Jans Cathedral. From there go back to the Binnendieze and take the boat tour you reserved! Finish the day off at a terrace and go to a restaurant.
Right infront of the Dutch Manneken Pis (have to call like it like this since I don't know the real name) you'll find the stairs that will lead you to the water. Hard to believe that you're in the middle of the city. Such a relaxing view.
When Den Bosch is called "Oeteldonk"
Together with Maastricht, the capitol of Brabant is also a capitol of Carnaval. Thousands join the inhabitants of the town to make this party a four days madness that doesn't know an equal. The name of 's Hertogenbosch is changed into "Oeteldonk" and that even means that at the station and road-entrances this is on the shields.
The parades are long and bring fantastic sculptures. One of the bests in The Netherlands.
