's-Hertogenbosch is home to a huge range of sights. Think, for example, of the impressive Saint John's Cathedral built between 1370 and 1529. Many spots in and around the cathedral are hard or impossible to see for ordinary churchgoers and visitors. In this video, Herman Lerou tells you all about Saint John's Cathedral's special spots and about a surprising find that was made: a message covered in brickwork by builders in 1940. Together, the Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch and the Noordbrabants Museum have one of the biggest museum buildings in the Netherlands: the Museumkwartier 's-Hertogenbosch. After construction, expansion and restoration, this city centre attraction opened in early 2013. Two museums that provide a home to centuries of culture, history, art and design, under a single roof, that is the Museum Quarter's appeal.
The Binnendieze is the collective name for the centuries-old system of waterways within 's-Hertogenbosch's walls.
