St. John's Cathedral, Den Bosch

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. Our Den Bosch journey builder app makes visiting St. John's Cathedral and other Den Bosch attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Went to see the church on a spur of a moment decision while we had to kill time. It’s beautiful and majestic inside.  more »
  • Very interesting tour. It is quite a climb but it is rewarded with a good explanation of the bells an its programmed bell sequence. Beautiful view over the city  more »

  • Check out the whimsical creatures sitting on the outside arches! Each of the lower platforms that holds a statue of a saint are also individually unique such as one looking like he is crawling out of the church. Inside is awe-inspiring and must be experienced for yourself.
  • Pride and joy of our city. Not to miss. Even though we've seen it many times, you'll always see something you haven't noticed before.
