St. John's Cathedral, Den Bosch

Must see · Religious Site · Architectural Building
St. John's Cathedral is a prime example of Gothic architecture. Built from 1220 to 1530, this Catholic church has operated as a place of worship for multiple denominations over the years. The church has undergone three rounds of restorations, the most recent finishing in 2010. Admire the 25 angel statues that were added, including one dressed in jeans and holding a mobile phone. The phone has only one button, which, according to the artist, is a direct dial to God. See the large stained-glass windows and an organ of great importance due to its long history. Our Den Bosch journey builder app makes visiting St. John's Cathedral and other Den Bosch attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This grand and hugely impressive cathedral has the largest tower of a Catholic church in The Netherlands. Not only did we walk the incredible length of the church, but we also climbed the bell tower.....  more »

  • Check out the whimsical creatures sitting on the outside arches! Each of the lower platforms that holds a statue of a saint are also individually unique such as one looking like he is crawling out of the church. Inside is awe-inspiring and must be experienced for yourself.
  • Pride and joy of our city. Not to miss. Even though we've seen it many times, you'll always see something you haven't noticed before.
  • Beautiful cathedral to visit. So quiet. A nice place to sit and think for a while.
  • Access to the St. John is free. You can support by donations or even by lighting a candle at the medieval dressed wooden madonna sculpture. Volunteers do tours as well. The cathedral is the best example of exuberant late gothic architecture in the Netherlands.
  • Very pretty cathedral. Lots of intact statues. Very well preserved. No public restroom.
