•12 December – 5 January
Winter Paradise Den Bosch is expected again. The Parade will be transformed again into a modern Christmas market with a beautiful Christmas tree, the Bossche Advent Calendar, bonfire, musical performances, storytellers, heated benches and chalets with Christmas items for your Christmas shopping.
There will be an ice rink and sing-a-long nights where you yourself lustily can sing along with both traditional and modern Christmas songs.
Three blowtorches, high and proud, give that warm winter glow every minute in spectacular fashion.
With a special nativity route the Winter Paradise is connected with St. John and the rest of the city.
• 9 December – 5 January
Christmas barn at St. John’s Cathedral. The nativity scene at St. John in Den Bosch is an annual attraction and is perhaps the most beautiful crib in the Netherlands. In the magnificent cathedral, the whole Christmas story is on display, including the Christmas child, Mary, Joseph, an ox and a donkey. In order to avoid long lines and queuing up, try visiting in the morning and not during the weekends or on Boxing day.
Please be aware the Cathedral is daily closed between 12.00 en 13.15 hours! More details check: bit.ly/openingstijdenkerststal
