Abstract text

A period of very successful operation of the LHC culminated in the discovery of a Higgs-like particle and marks a turning point in particle physics. After its initial observation, various properties of this particle are determined and confronted with expectations.

During this talk I will sketch the road to this discovery, present experimental status and future prospects, with emphasis on the Dutch contributions.
