  • Surrounding places and cities

    The Hague Off The Beaten Path

    The Hague is one of the "randsteden" (the rim-shaped agglomeration of cities in the westerly part of the Netherlands). Some think of an over-crowded industrial area where it has been clipped its wings of nature. Well, not a word of truth in it! You can make some great cycle-trips, and The Hague has special rules to please its cycle-friends. And...

  • Sonneveld house

    Rotterdam Off The Beaten Path

    Note the lights in the ceiling. The original Gispen furniture. The central heating which has not changed shape till the present day. The only difference now would be that the curtains would be to the floor.

  • Rokkeveen

    Zoetermeer Off The Beaten Path

    Rokkeveen was built from 1981 by a new generation of planologists. The suburb is planned in geometrical pieces around the water tower (which I did not photograph although I drove past it). Each sub-suburb circles around this water tower and each of those sub-suburbs has it's own building style. Click the link to see the water tower.

  • City landmarks

    The Hague Off The Beaten Path

    Having just gotten off the train at Centraal, and left my bag in the left-luggage lockers there, I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by the twin parks of Koekamp and Malieveld as I exited the station. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed this intriguing Art-Deco building at the far corner and so wandered in that direction to find out what it...

  • Kinderdijk (around Rotterdam)

    Rotterdam Off The Beaten Path

    Whenever you will get the chance, you could pay a visit to Kinderdijk/Childsdike. Here you may watch the best of many windmills together in Holland. The same windwills Neil Diamond sang about ... The about 19 windmills are all over in a beautiful landscape and I love the legends behind these windmills. The first windmill has been built around 1738...

  • Train station

  • Culture and arts

    The Hague Off The Beaten Path

    I didn't realise Den Haag has a 'Chinatown' and it was sheer luck that I spotted the rather nice gateway as I wandered along Spuistraat. Through the gate, on Wagenstraat and the surrounding streets, you'll find a variety of Chinese, Japanese and Indonesian restaurants and eating places as well as shops selling all types of Asian goods. Worth...

  • Schiedam (around Rotterdam)

    BTW: ... you want to see the tallest windmills of the whole world? Go for a travel to Schiedam. When in Rotterdam you donot need to go far away. Schiedam is between Rotterdam and Vlaardingen and it is really worth a while to visit the area of Schiedam. There is a nice little centre, some beautiful canals (it is possible to cruise the Schiedam...

  • North Sea Jazz Festival

It was a Dutch jazz promotor who brought the first edition (North Sea Jazz Festival) to The Hague, July 1976. NSJF...

  • The church of Woubrugge

    Built in 1653, it is still the focus point of Woubrugge.Before this church there was a small one standing here. It was strange for such a small community to ask for a large church to be built. But people came from distant places like Alphen (10 kilometers was quit a distance then) to hear the minister of Woubrugge, who was very populair.So...

  • Rien Poortvliet Museum in Middelharnis

    Middelharnis is a small town on the island of Overflakkee and the museum is a small museum in this small town.So it is really off the beaten path. But I consider it a hidden gem.Rien Poortvliet was a painter of animals and countrylife and the museum is dedicated to his work. Don't expect any modern art there.He also illustrated children books about...

    In the Nederlands Hervormde church of Woubrugge you will find a remmebrance plaque for Jan de Bakker (1499 - 1525) Johannes Pistorius Woerdensis was the first protestant martyr in the Netherlands. Born in Woerden and studied in Leuven (in todays Belgium). This was a catholic university, the only one in the low countries. Jan became priest in...

  • the churchbench of Jacobswoude

    Lost in the middle of the polder is this churchbench. It comes from the church of Jacobswoude, a village that drowned through its own greed. The bench dates back to 1586.At the other side of the road is a monument for the sunken village.More villages in the neighbourhood almost suffered the same faith, like the village Zevenhoven (where Gonnie is...

  • the lost village of Jacobswoude

    In 823 Jacobswoude was first mentioned. Lord Jacob van den Woude got to manage the area between Woubrugge, Alphen aan den Rijn, Ter Aar and Leimuiden. In 1494 there were only 48 houses of mainly poor people here. From the 14th century peat was won in the area. The big cities nearby Leiden, Haarlem and Amsterdam wanted much of this fuel. So the...
