's-Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch) is a city, situated in the middle-south of the Netherlands. It is the capital of the province of North-Brabant. The city is home to approximately 140,000 people. The city's name is originated from the forest of the Dukes where it is built on. This explains the name 's-Hertogenbosch which literally means "The Duke's Forest". The city centre features an oldtown full of splendour: pittoresk lane ways, historic buildings and a cozy central marketplace. Unique is the 'Bossche Broek': a protected natural reserve just a short stroll from the oldtown. Den Bosch is a diverse destination with a high quality set of year-round events.
Couch Searching & Surfing
Den Bosch has its own CouchSurf group. There are around 130 CS-members in Den Bosch and as the big crowds did not yet set foot in the city, it is amazingly easy to find a host. Travel wise and don't plan your visit without having an eye on the city's exuberant event calender.
