To inform you on the things our beautiful city has to offer, we have made a short overview of the possibilities. These are the best activities in Den Bosch according to us at Hotel Central.
Take a walk or bicycle ride
Discover extraordinary routes that lead you through and around the city of Den Bosch. Enjoy the area and unwind at 'de Moerputte', 'Bossche Broek' or the 'Kanaalpark', where you can take a leisurely stroll through the flower rich grasslands. We can highly recommend the routes from 'De Paadjesmakers', where you can find the best walks.
A visit to Den Bosch cannot go without an organized boat trip on the 'Binnendiez'. This route takes you underneath buildings and houses, where you can acquaint yourself with the unique waterways of Den Bosch. If you wish to take on the waters yourself, you can rent some unique water vessels including a giant duck! In the mood to combine the culinary on your boat trip? Try and make the Den Bosch delicacy 'Bossche Bollen' on the water. The possibilities are endless.
In the museum quarter you can find two museums under one roof: The 'Design Museum Den Bosch' and the 'Noordbrabants Museum'. The quarter itself consists of several authentic buildings dating from the later part of the eighteenth century until the early twenty first century. In the centre of this magnificent row of characteristic buildings a beautiful central garden is situated. The buildings are so intertwined the museums they house flow into each other which makes for a unique dynamic. Apart from the wealth of art and culture these museums have to offer, you can enjoy a great day out at the museum quarter.
Vincent van Gogh
Born and raised in Brabant Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is famous for his unique way of painting. In recent years he has gained a more prominent role in the 'Noordbrabants Museum'. The landscape and population of his native Brabant have influenced the themes he painted later in life. Which is reason enough to devote an exposition towards van Gogh’s source of inspiration. Starting from march 26, 2021 the museum opens a permanent exhibit called 'Van Gogh in Brabant', which will house paintings, letters, pictures, animations and other objects. The story of Van Gogh as a developing artist is told, which explores the relationship between the artist and his beloved Brabant.
