    What are your preferences: city or country exploration?

    One tip fot just outside the Netherlands: Take the train to Antwerp; there's a great event that weekend: http://www.bollekesfeest.be/

    If you want to explore cities: just travel by train to Maastricht; Utrecht, The Hague / Delft / Scheveningen; Rotterdam or Amsterdam.

    If you are a country lover: Go to the beach, Hoge Veluwe or somewhere nearer in the Province of Noord Brabant (natuurmonumenten.nl/province...

    On Sunday it´s the same schedule, with a departure opportunity each hour (so you can shift the schedule I gave by hour).

    The journey back is just in the reverse order.

    It starts with 15:44 take bus #70 at the Hylkemaweg bus stop (18:21 back at Den Bosch).
    Also this schedule can be shifted by hour.
