To celebrate the Jheronimus Bosch year, there are several activities around town. One of them is "a wonderous climb". You walk around the roof of the largest gothic cathedral of the Netherlands. The outside of the cathedral is supported by supportbeams. And on those beams...More

At the start of the Jheronimus Bosch Year they started also with this amazing climb at the roof of the St. Jans Cathedral. It's nice to see the statues so near. Also the beautiful view over the city of Den Bosch is nice.

Brilliant but temporary opportunity to walk along the roof of the Cathedral and look down on the city but primarily to look at all the people and creatures that decorate the roof. Such amazingly detailed sculptures normally only seen from the ground

Really stunning to see all the statues on the St. Jan from up-close! There are so many, all different and many of them really strange! Once in a lifetime opportunity to visit the St Jan this way you should not miss.

Rare opportunity to walk on the roof of a medieval cathedral. See the weird statues and enjoy the view over Den Bosch and the surroundings.

In order to resolve some structural issues of the flying buttresses they needed have more weight placed on them. From below you see stone carvings of the celestial gods. From this view you see what god might have seen. The humans working on the project...More

What a fantastic opportunity to see in detail the fascinating and unique figurines sitting astride the flying buttresses of the cathedral. You climb up via a series of well-constructed scaffolds and steps, right to below the bell tower, which, when we were there, was chiming...More

Well worth the climb up scaffolding stairs. You can reach the roof of the cathedral for marvellous views. The gargoyles on the flying buttresses are the star of the show. Medieval figures restored in 19th century and are truly awesome. Tickets are timed, so go...More

It is closed indeed. People are still reviewing it, because it was a marvellous thing and Tripadvisor is pestering us to write more reviews!
