  's-Hertogenbosch: Zwanenbroedershuis
by OlafS

The Zwanenbroedershuis is the building of the Zwanenbroeders. Yes. Zwanenbroeders, roughly translatable as Swanbrethen, is the semi-official name of an old (in fact it's the old society in the country) and exclusive fraternity devoted to the worshipping of Mary, but also known for the many swans on the menu of the yearly feast. This building in early neo-Gothic style dates from 1847 and is the society's current accomodation. It's still an exclusive affair, meaning that you cannot get in.
