    Move a piano?

    by garridogal Written Jun 5, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm told that when these hooks and windows are used to move large objects, such as a piano, that it's quite a spectator sport.

    I would sit and watch one of them in action. Wouldn't you?

    Torture Museum

    by Boca24 Written May 16, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The torture Museum is a "low-rent" museum dedicated to the art of torture. Have a variety of devices on display, the only problem is that the museum is very dark. Open daily from 10 - 22:00

    Special architecture

    by carolineraat Written Nov 25, 2002

    This "humanoid" kind of, typical dutch, architecture can be found all over the country, but this Bank office is one of the finest examples.

    I don't know if this is on the beaten path or not. I've even forgotten what it is or what it represents. Some sort of government building, I suppose. Netherlanders, forgive my yankee ignorance!
