Months of thinking and designing have been dedicated, worldwide. Weeks of construction and realisation, in studios and (now) in the Garden of Earthly Delights. And tonight is the day: the sixteen artworks of Bosch Parade set sail! The tenth colourful tour of the incongruous heads for the water. And does so four times, until next Sunday.

Bosch Parade departs on tonight at 20.00 hours, Friday night at 19.00 hours (come afterwards to watch football on the big screen in the Garden of Earthly Delights!), Saturday night at 20.00 hour and Sunday afternoon at 15.00 hours.

Starting point is the Willemsbrug, near Essent and café Buurt. From there, Bosch Parade passes along the River Dommel in about an hour, towards the Garden of Earthly Delights (Citadel). You can enjoy the creations everywhere along the route, on the quays and the banks; even more comfortably you can enjoy them on our Bosch Parade terraces on Westwal and on Bolwerk.

You will find all practical information about accessibility, toilets, etc. here.

Come and enjoy!


The Garden of Earthly Delights is a feast for all your senses. After all, Bosch Parade’s creative meeting place at the Citadel offers tasty food and drinks, you can experience the creation of the artworks and you can watch the parade float by – with commentary. 

During Bosch Parade, actors Luca Bötzel and Teun Donders ‘cheer’ the floating creations on with sharp and comical commentary, which can be heard throughout the Garden.

Before Bosch Parade, you can pamper your taste buds in the Garden of Earthly Delights with delicious food from pop-up restaurant La Cucina Del Diavolo. Afterwards, you can enjoy a toast on the waterfront terraces. Come whet your appetite at their appetising summer dishes Instagram-account.

And the Garden of Earthly Delights is also the place to be for Oranje fans. Because on Friday, after Bosch Parade, you can watch the Our Boys versus the French on a big screen there from 21:00 hours. Capacity there is limited, so be sure to arrive on time. Admission is, of course, free.
