Den Bosch is a wonderful town to visit. Beautiful homes and canals, especially the boat tours on the river the Dieze (book ahead) that go under the city. The cathedral is more than worth a visit. Paintings, family graves and sculptures in the church worth a stop!

It is the must place in town, walk and explore inside from the colourful windows to the organ and all little sculptures... did you spot the guy on the phone or the one kicking the peas in the facade?
