Fortified towns and top monuments
Cultural wealth in city and country
Cities like 's-Hertogenbosch and Breda offer beautiful trips back in time. Places where Hieronymus Bosch and the Dutch royal family left their marks. And what about Vincent van Gogh and beautiful fortified towns such as Heusden, Bergen op Zoom and Willemstad. From museum exhibitions to sights in the open air, experience the cultural heritage of North Brabant.
North Brabant is home to beautiful museums and heritage sites
From the Biesbosch MuseumEiland to Heeswijk Castle and from the Trappist monastery Koningshoeven Abbey to Het Noordbrabants Museum. All in close proximity to each other and always against the backdrop of North Brabant's countryside and estates.
's-Hertogenbosch is a contemporary city full of life, culture and history. It has been awarded the title of most hospitable city many years in a row, perhaps in part thanks to its 'Bossche Bol’, a delicious pastry that is characteristic for the city. Visit St. John's Cathedral, sail over the Binnendieze canal or enjoy the beautiful market from one of the pavement cafes. Enjoy the rich cultural heritage and the vibrant welcoming atmosphere in the city of artist Hieronymus Bosch.
With its picturesque streets, centuries-old buildings, many art studios and galleries, unique shops, top restaurants and little harbours, the atmospheric fortified town of Heusden is a great destination for lovers of art, culture and history. Heusden is truly a tourist haven.
Breda is linked historically with the Dutch royal family, and various places in the city are reminiscent of that. Centuries-old monuments, combined with water and greenery, characterize the city, with the Grote Kerk Church as its central eye-catcher. But you can also kick back in the city park or enjoy the serenity of the Begijnhof courtyard.
St. John's Cathedral
St. John's Cathedral is the largest cathedral in the Netherlands. See the medieval statue of the Sweet Mother and the numerous small statues on the flying buttresses of the cathedral. This kind of cathedral adornment is unique in the world. Located in the centre of 's-Hertogenbosch, a visit to ‘Saint John’ is a must for culture lovers.

Top monuments in Brabant
St John's Cathedral, together with the Grote Kerk Church in Breda, the Markiezenhof palace in Bergen op Zoom and Heeswijk Castle, form the top monuments of North Brabant. But calling them that means that we are not doing justice to the many other beautiful locations and destinations that Brabant has to offer.
