hans brinker'd duim in de dijk,

by loesk123

Het verhaal van Hans Brinkers hoort bij Amsterdam en de zilveren schaatsen.
Het kleine jongetje dat zijn vinger in de dijk stak om vloed te voorkomen is puur idealogie en voor zover ik weet was dat biesbos in 1421 tijdens de
St. Elizabeth vloed. Ik hoor vaak vragen hier in Amerika hoe dat kan. Wij hebben hier zoveel vloeden de laatste jaren en veel ervoor over 250 jaar bestaan, dat niemand hier begrijpt dat het wel in Nederland kan, maar niet hier!
Waarom is dat gecombineerd in Madurodam?

Hi,

I'm not sure what the question is, but maybe this is of some help: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Brinker,_or_The_Silver_Skates

PS: Maybe it's better to do this in English since it's an international forum!

I ran it through goggle translation (best I can do) and came up with this:

The story of Hans Brinkers part of Amsterdam and the silver skates.

The little boy stuck his finger in the dike to flood prevention is pure idealogy and as far as I know was that Biesbos in 1421 during the St. Elizabeth flood.

I often hear questions here in America how. We have so many floods in recent years and many over 250 years are sure that nobody here understands that it is in the Netherlands can, but not here! Why is that combined in Madurodam? .

Not sure what the question is - where is Pieter Jan when we need him!!!???

Ik begrijp niet helemaal wat je vraag nu is.. Wat heeft Mudarodam hiermee te maken?

Re: hans brinker'd duim in de dijk,

The real question is a bit unclear to me too.

(is "here" back in the USA or ...?)

At the entrance of Madurodam, there's this guy plugging a dyke with his finger...

I'm following this with interest as now I'm just curious what the question is and what the answer will be!

Re: hans brinker'd duim in de dijk,

by ATLC

Of course you'd get questions from Americans asking how this is possible. It's a story of fiction by an American author who'd never been to The Netherlands!
Indeed, the link that Pieter_Jan_V provides is quite interesting in that respect.
The Dutch have taken over this story and erected some statues just as an acknowledgement of an American story. Most Dutch people have not heard about the story at all.

After Katrina and indeed at all major flooding and water incidents in the world, it's always the Dutch who are asked to help solve the problems. The Dutch have developed the technology of water management over many centuries. A thumb in a dyke is not part of that technology :-)

It may be interesting for you to discover what the Dutch came to do after the Katrina disaster.

Sorry, Dennis (Pijlmans)! It was you who provided the wikipedia link :-)

Travel Tips for The Hague

Binnenhof

by bugulma

Binnenhof is a complex of buildings that look like the castle. It was founded in 1248, in the year of the city foundation. Since 1446 the place is the home for the city parament. Since 1982 one of the building of the complex is for prime minister of Netherlands by the way. Some pictures of Binnenhof you can find in my travelogue.

Madurodam

by myriam_c

Madurodam is a nice tourist attraction for both adults and children. They have some fine work done overthere. Every detail has been copied, every wheel turns, ... The trees in front of the buildings are evenly sized with the buildings. Beautiful!
This is an old picture of my son and myself standing next to the Grote Kerk 'Lange Jan' in Middelburg.

Mauritshuis

by Nathalie_B

Originally this building was a house of Prince Johan Maurits, who governed Dutch Brazil for a while. He wasn't that successful and was called back, later Dutch lost Brazil to Portugal.

After the fire damage in the beginning of 18th century Mauritshuis was rebuilt, and now it looks exactly like 400 years ago. SInce 19th century It serves as a museum which exhibits many paintings by Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Paulus Potter.

The Hague - Wassenaar Meijendel

by RoyJava

The area around Wassenaar is of legendary time with its ancient coastline on which the older dunes developed. Surprisingly the present-day dune area originated around 1000 AD. Walking around I do make up my phantasy about the combined influence of the sea and the river Rhine that resulted in the former formation when the Rhine became the River of No Return. For now Wassenaar still has the most beautiful dunes-area and, walking from Meijendel to the beach of Wassenaarse Slag (in about 45 minutes) you may imagine the presence of a settlement already in the early bronze Age, about 1.800 BC. See all sorts of plants and animal/bird species. To me a phantasmal, a memory out of dreams ...

Draaiorgel

by robertgaz

Draaiorgels (street organs) are mechanical musical instruments played by a moving music pattern set in a turning pinned barrel or disc. Some of the musical arrangements are quite beautiful and complex.

Draaiorgels are usually found around city and town centres and it is customary to tip these public entertainers.
