Het Noordbrabants Museum collects art and other objects which are related to the art, history and culture of North Brabant and the Southern Netherlands. The museum collection contains more than 30,000 objects, such as paintings, prints, drawings, textile, coins and medals, glass, silver, craft work and archaeological and typical objects from Brabant.
Together with St. John’s Cathedral in ’s-Hertogenbosch, the Grote Kerk church in Breda and the Markiezenhof in Bergen op Zoom, Kasteel Heeswijk is one of the four official Top Monuments in Brabant. You can experience the chequered history of almost one thousand years of power, pride and culture of the elite of Brabant, all prominently located in the River Aa valley close to ’s-Hertogenbosch. The castle is also the Nature Gateway to Brabant and is encircled by the Heeswijk Estate where you can spend some relaxing time among beautiful countryside. Come and enjoy this imposing monument weekly from Tuesdays to Sundays. ‘Bij de Barones’ is the place for visitors to the castle and estate to enjoy coffee, lunch or drinks in beautiful historic surroundings!
Basilica Oudenbosch of the Holy Agatha and Barbara
A hidden gem in the Western part of North Brabant. This church is unlike any other church in the Netherlands. Just like the center of Oudenbosch, where the church is located, it’s inspired by Roman architecture. The church and historical center around it are worth the visit. In the Oudenbosch Basilica and the museums surrounding it you’ll discover the special connection that Oudenbosch has with Rome and Vatican city.
