Scenes of Den Bosch – Part 1: The Cathedral

I just wanted to post a few pics I took this week in Den Bosch. I absolutely love this city and can’t get enough of it! Today I’ll show you the city’s Cathedral, and later I’ll post some pictures from around town.

St. Jan’s Cathedral is one of the best I have ever been in. It is absolutely stunning and rich with history. They say it is the finest Cathedral in the Netherlands. The details on both the inside and outside are incredibly ornate, and its gothic architecture is beautiful.

The site itself dates back to the 13th Century, but the building you see today was completed around 1525.

For more detail, you can click on the pictures to see them in a bigger size.

Inside the Cathedral

Some amazing ancient-looking stone markers in the floor. It's crazy to think that people have been walking on these for centuries.

A beautifully carved and painted altar.

Awesome stained glass windows

The magnificent pipe organ over the entrance of the Cathedral. I've never seen one this big - wish I could have heard it play! It was built in the early 1600's.

An old music book

The pulpit

Another cool stone marker in the floor

Another altar

I don't know what this is, but I thought it was pretty cool, so I took a picture.

Now on to the outside. The Cathedral was built in gothic style.

Details of the back of the building

Amazing.
