Accessibility

We think it is important that Bosch Parade and Garden of Earthly Delights are accessible to everyone. We cannot make some locations on the lower waterfront accessible because of the terrain. Garden of Earthly Delights is accessible. Terrace Bolwerk St. Jan is accessible by stairs and a lift. For those who want to visit Bosch Parade for free, there are several spots along the entire route that offer excellent visibility.
