The St Jans tower is almost dwarfed by the immense size of the St Jans Cathedral, but is still 73 meter high. You can climb this tower for a fee and enjoy the view over historic Den Bosch. The viewing platform is 43 meter high.

Lovely experience, great views across the city but the mesh steps are disorientating for some people, which makes walking up a 'challenging' experience for some.
