's-Hertogenbosch Things to Do
The St. Antoniuskapel was originally built in 1491 and altered several times since. The Gothic facade however survived, and a new chapel was attached to it in 1956. The facade has had several restorations; four statues were added in 1910. Recently the complex it had been part of for the last few decades was demolished and replaced by something new....more
Jan de Groot's bakery was founded in 1936 and it's now in 3rd generation De Groot hands.The famous bakery/lunchroom is in the heart of Den Bosch and is extremely popular and busy with locals, especially on a Saturday lunch time!

I have to say I had high hopes for the restaurant due to visits to other similar venues.
Sadly my expectations and hopes were not met - my medium to well done steak came back very pink and bloody and the pepper sauce was not quite what it should have been.
The staff were fine and very professional, however there seemed to be a constant lack of confusion over which one was doing what to which customers!
Then I attempted to pay my bill using an American Express Card - sadly everything else was acceptable apart from this card, odd really or is it to do with the charges?
Favorite Dish: Good Question, with no answer for this restaurant.
I found the services offered to be punctual and comfortable. the one thing which was a limiter was the automatic ticket machines; they do not accept all forms of payment.
Comfortable trains and busy stations.
A few Dutch delicacies - available from any supermarket!Hagelslag - chocolate sprinklesMuisjes - sugared aniseed comfitsSpeculaas - spiced biscuitsStroopwafels - treacle wafflesDropjes - liquorice sweetsSpekkies - Dutch marshmallowsRookworst - smoked sausage 'kruidnoten' or 'pepernoten' are VERY closely related to 'Sinterklaas', a Dutch tradition....more
For the outsider to even come close to gaining the slightest understanding of the Dutch (let alone the language!) a selection of these might be useful. Whilst reading "Understanding the Dutch" or "The Undutchables", try not to laugh too loudly on Dutch public transport. They are extremely spot on with their wry and sardonic view of this nation! :))more

The area surrounding the Central trainstation is a very good example how to integrate modern architectual culture with old school archtitecture.
Behind the station you can find a variëty of cozy litlle coffeeshops and lots of traveling people.
New Buildings like the Van Lanschot bank and the Court house have given this area a brand new concept of working and living on the same location. THe sailing ships are amazing and the wide open spaces gives you enough rest and peace to enjoy som spectaculair vieuws.At the front of the station old architectural buildings give the city that own medieval touch and shows you a meltingpot of different cultures and styles.Related to:
