Going to Den Bosch to See the Bosch Exhibit?

I noticed that there has been a lot of interest in attending the 500th anniversary festivities to mark local hero Hieronymus Bosch's death - yesterday's NYTimes Travel Section had a nice story about all that - for those of you who are going:

Den Bosch is the rare Dutch regional town I have not been to and by accounts I've been missing something - it's on my bucket list.

No but we have a one day window in September to see the Bosch exhibit at the Prado.

Good grief Pal where have you been? there have been several threads on the exhibition, which closes on the 8th of May, and is sold out.

It has been a spectacularly successful exhibition, and the events (which continue after the exhibition closes) surrounding it have also been very successful.

But I would still encourage people to visit Den Bosch, as it is a lovely small city with or without the exhibition.

Well yes that's why I posted it - been seemingly an inordinate number of threads - did not realize it closed so soon or would not have bothered.

Den Bosch ('s-Hertogenbosch) is not only a lovely small city, it's also known for having a lot of excellent restaurants.

Hehe ... yes, the Dutch mostly eat very early. But ... Den Bosch is not too far from the Belgian border. They have taken some of our good habits!

We absolutely loved Den Bosch (and the exhibit, though boy was it mobbed!). There did seem to be a lot of enticing restaurants there. We opted for rijsttafel, which was very good, but the other options were appealing.
