The international youth football tournament is held in Schijndel, a small provincial town (23,000 inhabitants) in a rural setting, 6 miles or so south of the lively city of 's Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch) and 12 miles north of Eindhoven. 

Den Bosch

Den Bosch, also known as 's Hertogenbosch, is the capital of the southern Dutch province 'Noord Brabant'. The pretty city centre is dominated by historic facades and especially by the very attractive market square. Apart from culture, Den Bosch is great for shopping or fun nights out, Brabant style. The medieval market square is particularly renowned for its very special, friendly atmosphere and because there is always something to do. Do not miss the local speciality: the 'Bossche Bol' (a large chocolate puff pastry filled with fresh cream). 


The Efteling is the most famous theme and pleasure park of the Netherlands . Many fairy-tales come to life here for the youngest visitors, sensational roller coasters for the older ones and something for all ages in between. Note: only suitable as a full day excursion.
