After leaving the railway station, looking for the bakery that is the source of the "Bossche Bollen", the center of the first major crossing encountered is taken by the "Drakenfontein". (Dragon fountain). It is a nice, well made landmark, but not spectacular. See my picture.

The Drakenfontein you cant miss just outside from the main bus/train station. A large gold dragon on a column with dragon at the base. , very eye catching on your way to the centre of the city.

So many towns look the same but you can’t miss this - the minute you walk out of the rail station this is the most distinctive landmark because it’s a dragon that is bright gold. There are also dragon statues at the bottom. Very distinctive

Referred to by many locals as the Homage to All Mother-in-Laws, the Drakenfontein (Dragon Fountain) is placed right in front of Central Station in Den Bosch - It's beautifully preserved and a true landmark, very significant to the centuries old city. I used to pass...More

It is an okay feature for this location. A larger than life golden metal shining dragon on top of a stone pole. If you are not traveling by train I would not go out of my way to see this though.
