why such a strange name???

Firstly, you would confuse the pronounce of the city, 's-Hertogenbosch...the sign in the train station proudly shows the name. what the hell of this?!

I heard from my local friend that it means "Prince of the wood" (not sure whether it is correct....).

But, don't worry! all of the Dutch people know that you can just call the city Den Bosch!

The city locates 1 hour train trip from schiphol or amsterdam centraal. it should be geographically center of the NL!

Ok, I try to explain the attractiveness of the city, since, for some reason, I became a citizen of the city:-)
