4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Inside the Cathedral there is a large variety of images (such as the image of Mary), chapels with a sea of fresh flowers.

  • The Basilica is by far an interesting structure, the circle of Friends of the ‑Hertogenbosch guide tells you the history please. Within the sunlight made the stained glass to a colorful spectacle. Also notable the 520 monuments-from which one can look up the detailed description on the internet.

  • Amazing masonry, the detail is phenomenal, well worth a look.
  • One of the most impressive cathedrals in The Netherlands. Great square with pubs and shops in front of it.
  • Whatever you do, don't call the Cathedral a Church, not unless you want to get the locals upset. You can freely walk around he cathedral, which you should, and experience it in all its glory. There's a paid guided tour that'll take you all the way up to the top of the bel tower.
  • Amazing and beatiful cathedral. Well worth visiting if you are a tourist in town. 'Bosschenaren' (the locals) will all agree.
  • Beautiful. And with a great choir!
