Art and culture in the heart of Brabant

Den Bosch breathes art and culture. The Design Museum Den Bosch and the Noordbrabants Museum are a stone's throw from each other and offer a wide range of art, from historical masterpieces to contemporary design objects. Lovers of the work of Hieronymus Bosch can indulge themselves in the Hieronymus Bosch Art Center, where replicas of his famous works can be admired.

Discover the Binnendieze
