Heusden

share

The history of this charming little fortified city, which is situated just west of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, is littered with plundering, war and conquerors, but these days it mostly hosts tourists and history buffs. It has in its time known many illustrious occupiers. In the 9th century, the fortress Heusden, back then but a castle, was burned to the ground by Vikings. Ever since, much has been done to restore the city to its ancient glory. Here and there they overdid the restorations and the centuries-old buildings look almost new, but a walk through Heusden is still a walk through time. Everywhere you'll see the original function of the city because you’re never far from the fortifications that offer great views. With over 130 buildings listed as monuments, you may feel like you’re in an open-air museum. A museum where, after your stroll, you can seat yourself at an outdoor café and enjoy a well-deserved drink.
