's-Hertogenbosch is a beautiful fortified city with a rich history and countless monuments. It's not for nothing that there is a course in 'Boschology' about the cultural history of 's-Hertogenbosch. There is so much to tell about this city! A guide will take you for a walking tour through the historic centre and you will make a boat trip along the Binnendieze: the rivers within the city walls.
Extraordinary places, extraordinary concerts, exclusive receptions. These are the Bijzonder events, which we put together just for our clients. This season, you can attend an exclusive fado concert by Cuca Roseta, enjoy a culinary round trip with an old tram in Rotterdam or make a walking tour and boat trip in the historic city s'-Hertogenbosch. But there is more. Take a look at the whole Bijzonder selection. Always different, and always with a little extra.

Design between heaven and earth
A five-star hotel where history and design come together-that in a nutshell is the Kruisherenhotel in Maastricht. A hotel that is a monumental gothic church and 15th century Kruisheren monastery transformed. With history on the one side and beautiful interiors on the other, this morning will almost make you feel transported to somewhere between heaven and earth.
Jugendstil villa 'Rams Woerthe'
In Steenwijk stands the beautiful Jugendstil villa 'Rams Woerthe'. The name refers to the pasture or meadow upon which this large house was built and which was owned by former mayor Ram in the 17th century. The villa is a must for lovers of architecture and interiors. It was designed by architect Van Gendt, who also designed the Concertgebouw and, together with Cuypers, Amsterdam Central Station.

Paint as Van Gogh
Loving Vincent, a film about the life of Vincent Van Gogh, is the first completely painted feature film in the world.

The workshop will be given by a teacher/visual artist.
Ingenuity in the DAF Museum
Fun fact: the abbreviation DAF stood for Van Doorne's Aanhangwagenfabriek N.V. (Trailer Factory) and later Van Doorne's Automobielfabriek N.V. (Automobile Factory).

You will be amazed by the ingenuity which characterises DAF vehicles since the company was founded in 1932.

Passionate, soulful, innovative fado sound; flawless, powerful voice and magnificent performance. That is what Cuca Roseta will bring to the Buiksloterkerk in Amsterdam-Noord. In this idyllic church, you have all the ingredients for an evening of enchantment and emotionally charged wonder.
Amazing Museum Voorlinden
The Voorlinden Museum has been in existence since 10 September 2016, when King Willem-Alexander opened this Dutch private museum for modern and contemporary art.
