The city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, also known as Den Bosch, is known for its geniality, hospitality and exuberant culture. Everyone feels welcome in the historic centre. Lovers of art and culture visit (one of) the various museums and exhibitions. Pleasure seekers choose the cosy cafes, trendy coffee shops and wonderful restaurants. And shopaholics go to smaller boutiques, concept stores, pop-up shops and other contemporary shops.
‘s-Hertogenbosch manages to flawlessly combine its cultural-historical character with the characteristics of a modern city. The consequence? A creative, dynamic city with many attractions. We list a few:
St. John’s Cathedral is rightfully one of the most beautiful and interesting buildings in the Netherlands. This Gothic cathedral basilica was built between 1370 and 1529.
The Design Museum Den Bosch (Before 2018: ‘Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch’), together with ‘Het Noordbrabants Museum’, forms one of the largest museum buildings in the Netherlands: the ‘s-Hertogenbosch ‘Museumkwartier’ (Museum Quarter) . Following new construction, expansion and restoration, this pearl opened in the city centre in early 2013. The power of the Museum Quarter to attract is its two museums under one roof, with a multitude of culture, history, art and design from many centuries.
The Binnendieze is the collective name for the centuries-old system of all watercourses within the walls of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Sail under the city in a characteristic open boat with a guide and experience how history comes to life. Enjoy the monuments, the variety between old and new buildings, the inspiring waterways and be amazed by the imposing fortifications as you sail underneath the city.
‘s-Hertogenbosch’s city centre is well-known for its many restaurants, terraces and cafes. There are countless convivial places to be found, especially in the Korte Putstraat or the De Uilenburg district. Every ‘Bosschenaar’ has his favourite and fun it certainly is. If you are looking for a suitable and relaxing restaurant or café to discuss the event, then you’ve come to the right place at one of these locations.
It’s almost criminal to only visit ‘s-Hertogenbosch for an event and not to visit the convivial and exuberant city centre. An overnight stay in the region of ‘s-Hertogenbosch is the perfect solution. But of course it also gives a lot of peace to be around 1931 the night before your event. There are several hotels within a few kilometres of our location. In collaboration with these hotels and holiday parks, 1931 is able to ensure you of the best and lowest price.
