The Duke knows and loves his city like no other. We always go the extra mile to make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible. As the ambassador of town accompanied by his team of locals we will send you in just the right direction to make the most out of your city trip. As you’ll stay in the center of our historic city, your adventure starts right next door.

Scroll down to find out all about our favorite shopping routes, coffeebars, restaurants and activities. With the famous St. John’s Cathedral and the bespoke Korte Putstraat restaurants as close as within the hotel’s aura, try to not forget to dicover the rest of town.

Den Bosch is a centuries old fortress city built around the Cathedral. Don’t hesitate to ask us about the cultural must sees, the up to date expositions in the Noord Brabants Museum or discover the ourskirts with our complimentary Duke Bikes upon availability.

To park your car you go to one of the public parkings within walking distance. The Wolvenhoek parking is just slightly closer to the hotel. However, the St. Jan parking is newly built, with more spacious spots.

From the St. Jan parking you walk a beautiful route, through the Casino garden and the Parade to The Duke Boutique Hotel.
