The Moriaan: the oldest brick house of the Netherlands. The house was built in the 13th century and now is home to VVV 's-Hertogenbosch (Tourist Information Centre) en P79, a bar located in the basement. The Moriaan was built in 1220 by duke Hendrik I van Brabant. In this time, more buildings where built in this shape. Nowadays, these buildings can no longer be recognised as such, or are demolished. In 1965, the municipality of 's-Hertogenbosch wanted to break down the Moriaan to make room for traffic. However, this plan was refused by the minister. In the '60 of last century, the Moriaan was restored completely. Later, the building was recognised as a national monument. Would you like to visit the Moriaan?
