s-Hertogenbosch

Winding waterway

more than a year ago

The Dommel, one of the smaller rivers in the Netherlands, was immortalised by artist Vincent van Gogh who painted the characteristic windmills that line this winding waterway. The Dommel itself was indispensable to the rich industrial heritage of 's-Hertogenbosch and its far surroundings. Its (then polluted) water was used to transport wood, grain, meat and drinkable water. You can experience the Dommel for yourself with a hike or a bicycle ride along its banks while you can enjoy the rich flora and fauna along its banks.
