“Very impresive cathedral”

St. John's Cathedral
Ranked #2 of 41 things to do in Den Bosch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 July 2013

I've been to a lot of Cathedrals and this is one of the most impressive. The sheer scale and craftsmanship of this Gothic wonder is amazing. Religious or not, you must visit this place. and wonder at the dedication and skill to create such a place.

Beautiful both inside and out, this gothic cathedral. Located in the heart of the city and surrounded by many other buildings which are several hundred years old, this cathedral is well worth visiting! The stained glass windows, the chapel of Mary, displaying her statue with her famous cloak (do read up on the legend surrounding this statue and cloak!). Many religious paintings, sculptures, and impressive architecture. The building is still actively used for weddings, funerals, and standard mass. However, access is always granted provided visitors are quiet and respectful while walking around. Be sure to not just look up at the fantastic ceiling, but also look down as you walk over the inscriptions of centuries-old graves! I have visited this cathedral at least ten times, and I am impressed by its beauty and serenity every single time.

A highlight in the city, one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the Netherlands. In May there are special Virginia Mary celebrations on Sundays.

If u don't compare w the Dome in Milan, St. John is still a nice cathedral. And if u happen to be in Den Bosch, it is nice to see

Amazing stained glass windows and architecture. Entrance is free. We didn't stay long but it was nice to have a quick walk around inside.
