St John's Cathedral, Den Bosch
(4.6/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • It is certainly to see if anyone is in the area, but unfortunately during the period of the wars of religion the iconoclast fury has stripped of frescoes, statues, paintings, including those of Bosch ... Very good choir and acoustics which makes it very impressive.

  • This magical cathedral is totally different from other churches and cathedrals in the Netherlands. It is really recommended to visit that.
  • Not just a splendid cathedral but a real living catholic church with beautiful masses and celebrations. A wonderful place of beauty and worship, worth to keep preserved and cherished.
  • Amazing masonry, the detail is phenomenal, well worth a look.
  • 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.
  • One of the most impressive cathedrals in The Netherlands. Great square with pubs and shops in front of it.
