Den Bosch Free City Tour

Yesterday was a nice, sunny Spring day about 13 degrees – which was the warmest of 2018, so the terraces were full and everyone was out enjoying the sun in the cafes. In the sun it was warm, in the shade it was cold – but dry so I took advantage of a day out in city of S’Hertogenbosch and took park in the free tour offered Den Bosch Free Tours.

Of course, we’ve been to the city a lot, did the Binnendize Boat Tour last year, our kids attend school there and in July, we move to a house in the city centre!!!  I never did a tour before so I’m looking forward to it. I’ve been following the Facebook page of the group and this was perfect timing.

Couldn’t quite spell our names, but could do Maebh 🙂

Our guide Cora was brilliant! A full time History teacher – she knew her stuff and you could tell shad passion about the city.  She took us to touristic yet quite places & streets of Den Bosch. She shared very useful information about the history of the city (and The Netherlands) and showed us some important historical and modern spots of Den Bosch.  Oh and it was in 100% English which is absolutely brilliant for expats & non-Dutch speaking people to experience! I totally recommend this tour to people who would like to know more about Den Bosch & it’s history!   Of course the tour is free and tipping is optional but I think €5.00 per person is the average donation!

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
