On every trip I took from Maastricht up north to Utrecht or Amsterdam there was a stop called ‘s-Hertogenbosch. How to even pronounce that? I thought, but it’s pretty straightforward if you use the short Den Bosch, a little gem of a town which opened my eyes to the incredible art of 15th century Hieronymus Bosch, the most surreal painter of the pre 19-20th century, with mind-blowing paintings and artwork that would question everything you thought you knew about early Renaissance. Even without Hieronymus, the town is quite lovely, with rooftop-walk cathedrals, museums, and canals, it’s definitely worth a day of exploring, especially if there’s a Bosch art exhibition taking place (and there usually is one, they try and keep it alive).
Shall we take a walk through Den Bosch?

So no longer just a train stop on the way to Amsterdam, Den Bosch is a destination worth seeing, and if you haven’t already – the funky world of Hieronymus Bosch awaits.
