Greetings from the Netherlands to all the Coaches, Athletes and Supporters

We’d love to welcome you all to the Netherlands for the 24th European Cheerleading Championships.

When you think of the Netherlands, you might think about tulips, the rich history of the Netherlands or even the many museums, but Netherlands has much more to offer. There are lots of great cities in the Netherlands, such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht. The event will be held in `s Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch).

Because the Netherlands is a very small country, all these cities are within driving distance. For example, Amsterdam is only 1 hour and 15 minutes’ drive away from the Venue.    We want you to have fun and explore the wonderful city of `s Hertogenbosch so we prepared a map of the city for you download below.

Closer to the event weekend we will post all information on this site.  We kindly advise you to go through all the information with your team, prepare for the event and have an experience of a lifetime.

On behalf of the AFBN Cheerleading we wish you the best in your preparations toward the event and look forward to seeing you at the 24th European Cheerleading Championships in  `s Hertogenbosch, Netherlands.

With greetings from the Netherlands

Hosting City & Venue

‘s Hertogenbosch

Welcome to ‘s Hertogenbosch. ‘s Hertogenbosch (Duke’s Forest), also known as Den Bosch, is the Capital of the province of North Brabant. It is known for its beautiful fortresses, Bossche Bol pastry, and its famous painter Jheronimus Bosch.

Den Bosch is a fortified city that has retained its medieval character. The city walls and fortifications of the fortified city of ‘s Hertogenbosch were built in the 16th and 17th centuries. Two rivers flow through the city: the Dommel and Binnendieze rivers.

Some of the remarkable sights are the Gothic St. Janskathedraall (Saint John’s Cathedral), the Stedelijk Museum, the Carnavalsmuseum and the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center, where you will learn everything about this most famous resident of the city.

Den Bosch is also known for its pastry. The most famous one is called Bossche bol pastry. It is a large profiterole (cream puff), somewhat larger than a tennis ball, which is filled with whipped cream and coated with chocolate. You can’t leave ‘s Hertogenbosch until you have tried this wonderful pastry!
