Travel Tips for Roosendaal

The Basilica of Oudenbosch

by Pieter11

In 1842 Willem Hellemons was appointed as Father of the Oudenbosch. He was very displeased about the local church, because it was in very bad conditions, and it was built in a Gothic style, which Hellemons didn´t like. Father Hellemons had great plans with Oudenbosch, and wanted to built a impressive new church. He decided his town should have a copy of the St. Peter´s church of Rome.

P. Cuypers was hired as architect, and first was send to Rome to get inspired. He has never done something like this before in his life, so many people believe it wasn´t really his work. The proportions are not exactly similar to the St. Peter, but it still looks very impressive. In 1892 the facade was added, inspired by the St. John in Lateran church of Rome.

Almost the entire church is built of brick, covered with an awful lot of plaster. Only very few natural stone is used. The interior is full of fake marble paintings and fake gold, but it still is very impressive to see such a church in such a small town.

Address: Markt 5, Oudenbosch.

Opened:
- summertime: 9:00 - 12:00 and 13:00 - 17:00
- wintertime: 9:30 - 12:00 and 13:00 - 16:00

Entrance fee to the dome: € 0,50

Rustic Roosendaal

by dinhyen

Roosendaal was to be our first stop in Holland. We had ridden the train in from Paris, switching in Brussels. Our friend's family lived in the tiny village of Boxmeer, but getting there was a little hard, so they planned to pick us up at the Roosendaal train station. Looking back, I'm quite surprised everything went according to plan for my first trip abroad (other than Canada, that is :)

I think we must have driven some distance from Roosendaal, but not far. I've forgotten quite a lot after 6 years. But I still have vivid memories of wandering on top of one of the world-famous dikes and inspecting a windmill up close. Now that those 2 must-do activities were out of the way, we settled into a restaurant for dinner, which was... pancakes. I had been accustomed to eating pancakes with syrup, but apparently the Dutch also ate them in quite different manners, with hams, eggs, meat, etc., and it was great. We wandered around town a bit, which must have been a bit strange as we were the only Asians in a decidedly non-tourist destination. After a hectic week in Paris, it was nice to be off-the-beaten-path for once.

"yes been here!"

Honderden internationale reizigers wrongen zich in alle bochten om met de bus toch nog op tijd op de plaats van bestemming te arriveren.
Ita Sembiring hijgt nog na als ze haar relaas doet. "Het was een gekkenhuis. Ik was om 10.00 uur op het station om met de trein naar Brussel te reizen", vertelt de Roosendaalse.
Op het station bleek echter geen enkele trein naar België meer te rijden.
Sembiring: "Zeker driehonderd mensen stonden daar en wisten niet wat te doen. Sommigen raakten in paniek, omdat ze in Brussel de Thalys naar Parijs of het vliegtuig naar Londen moesten halen. Toen kregen we te horen dat er bussen werden ingezet om ons naar Essen of naar Antwerpen-Berchem te brengen."
Op het moment dat de eerste bus op het station arriveerde, ontstond er volgens Sembiring een ware run onder de reizigers. "Mensen sprongen al in de bus voordat die helemaal stilstond. Er werd geduwd en getrokken. Iedereen wilde een plek in die bus. En zo ging het ook met de volgende twee bussen."
Sembiring koos eieren voor haar geld en belde haar vriend. "Ik heb gevraagd of hij me met de auto naar België wilde brengen en daar ben ik met de trein verder gereisd naar Brussel. Uiteindelijk ben ik daar wel aangekomen, maar twee uur later dan de bedoeling was", aldus Sembiring die op een Indonesische kerstviering in de Belgische hoofdstad voor moest lezen uit eigen gedichten.
Woordvoerder Fred Versfeld van de NS bevestigt dat er zaterdagmorgen sprake was van een chaotische drukte op het Roosendaalse station.
"Het was toevallig al heel druk met reizigers en dan zul je net zien dat alle treinen naar België uitvallen. Buiten onze schuld om, door een stroomstoring in België, maar daar kopen die reizigers natuurlijk niets voor."
