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.

  • One of the oldest Catholic Church with Gothic Architecture. If you are lucky you can visit 400 year pipe organ
  • Because my family's history is combined with this cathedral, it's more interesting for me, so I'm a bit biased. But I like this cathedral and it's history. Since 1380 you can see the Miracle Statue of the Zoete Lieve Vrouw here. The painter Hieronymus Bosch is linked with this cathedral as well. There's a fresco of his grandfather there too, on which he supposedly based one of his paintings. Furthermore, you can find some freemason symbolism here. It's an active cathedral, so remember to respect their rituals. I know... annoying to say, but I felt I had to.
  • An old cathedral with an elaborate interior. Worth a look if visiting Den Bosch.
  • Beautiful. Pity it wa not allowed to photograph inside. Some people doing selfies strange enough.
  • Beautiful place. Friendly greeters. Lovely choir.
