Visited with my S/O when the birth of Christ scene was set up: stuffed animals, mannequins wearing traditional clothing, the scene itself - impressive things to see. The architecture is impressive and well kept. We lit candles and prayed in quiet, having some peaceful time.

The architecture is definitely amazing. What we have achieved over the years is remarkable, however. Pretty Depressing Crib. Cold. Dark. Scary looking creatures. Macabre in many ways. The birth of Christ is supposed to be a Celebration of Life not Death.

It is always wonderful to see St. Jan’s overlooking Den Bosch. Didn’t have too much time to see the new work that was being undertaken when we were here last time for the Bosch 500th anniversary. Always majestic.

a very pretty church, if you have the opportunity visit the tower as well, not only you have a great view but also you get to see the bells how they work and if you're lucky you can see them being played
