Den Bosch is the largest walled city in the Netherlands and its medieval centre is an attraction in itself. Most of the city's best sights – its wharves, churches and monuments – are concentrated in a relatively small area that makes up the old town, which means that a full day and a good pair of walking shoes is all you need to cover most of the main attractions. However, with inviting cafés every few metres, a couple of large parks perfect for aimless wandering and lots of photogenic old buildings, you could spend the better part of a week exploring and still find something new around every corner. In this chapter you'll find everything you need to know about boat tours on the lovely canal, historic buildings, parks and ancient churches. Add to that scores of intriguing museums and you'll know why the Dutch adore this city.
