Interesting history of s-Hertogenbosch

If you like cultural heritage, it is a good idea to go to 's-Hertogenbosch. The most famous of the city is certainly the St. John's Cathedral and just behind the church on the Markt one of the Netherlands' oldest houses, De Moriaan. On the Markt, you can also find the monumental town hall, which can also be visited

The Binnendieze:
Beautiful branches of the rivers through beautiful places of the city center. By raising the city and expanding the city, many arches and bridges came over the waters. The special feature of the Binnendieze is that this canal also goes underground under buildings, so the canal runs through the entire city center. An example of a building under which the Binnendieze passes is the City Hall. The nice thing about this is that there is a hatch in the City Hall to the Binnendieze, a bridal couple can then directly board the wedding boat from the City Hall.
