  • Madurodam, Miniature City

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    The Hague Things to Do

    In July 2015 I visited Madurodam in The Hague (Den Haag). Madurodam was founded in 1952 as a war monument. It was in memory of warhero and partisan George Maduro who died in concentration camp Dachau on 09 February 1945. His parents donated the capital to start Madurodam. Once I entered the entrance, I had to present myself as a Blogger Press...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Rotterdam Things to Do

    With it's 185 metres at the highest point, the Euromast is the tallest tower of the Netherlands that's open for the public to visit. I went there in May 2015 and it exceded my expectations. The view was really beautiful and luckily for us the weather was good for once.

    Delft Things to Do

    There is so much to see in the New Church, maybe too much to mention. We walked our way up to the mausoleum of William the Silent and the private royal family crypt. After we had a good look at both beautiful artifacts we headed towards the choir isle of the church, which has a various number of mausoleums. One of them in the one of Hugo Grotius....

    Leiden's Gravensteen is a very old building, built entirely from stone and dating from the 1300s . It was originally used partly as a dwelling place for the Counts of Leiden and partly as their private prison.

    Scheveningen Things to Do

    Like walking into France, in Scheveningen Village, this store has a great ambiance and beautiful products. They import top quality branded products from France. From delicious pâtés and Parisian beers to chocolate and beauty products. I like the cute French Bensimon tennis shoes and Breton sweaters of Armor-Lux. A must see for any food-lover or...

  • Must visit in Zuid-Holland

    Provincie Zuid-Holland Things to Do

    The nineteen windmills of Kinderdijk - built in 1740 - are one of the most well-known tourist sites in the Netherlands. It is the largest group of windmills standing more or less together in my country and a perfect place to visit and to learn more about the everlasting fight of the Dutch against the water. To be honest the views of the...

  • Scheveningen / Kijkduin beach

    The Hague Things to Do

    Scheveningen is part of the Hague having golden sand, many pubs and restaurants, an aquarium (Sea Life) and a modern lighthouse. The water, no surprise, is not really good for swimming but it can reach an "acceptable" temperature in the summer. However it's perfect for sunbathing on the rare sunny days.

  • Cubic Houses (Kubus woningen)

    Rotterdam Things to Do

    Absolutely amazing that these houses could have been built at all... The steep turning steps leading to the entryway are definitely not up to code, anyone with a slight limp could not get in or out, if you needed help nobody could get to you. In my country stairways like that are not allowed in the building permit. And that's just on the way...

    The central market of Delft is one of the largest market squares in Europe, 50x120 yards, and bounded on the short ends by the Nieue Kerk and the Stadthuis.

    Delft Things to Do

    The Oude Kerk is the one with the wonderfully 'wonky' tower and is the oldest church in Delft. A stone church stood on the spot in 1050...a tiny one, just 12m by 30m. That building was rebuilt and expanded during the mid-1200s. During the following centuries additions and changes were made to the original buildings, creating the structure which...

    Take a chance an get off the train at Leiden. It's not nearly as touristy as Amsterdam and it's an easy place to see a couple of windmills up close. Head east from the train station. The main roads will take you over a couple of canals and you'll been in the center of town with the main shopping street. One of the sites worth seeing is the...

    A very Dutch tip: biking along blooming bulb fields. Just another way to see these stunning flower fields in the Bulb and Dune Region in the western part of the Netherlands. We started our bike trip from the Tourist Information Centre (VVV) of Noordwijkerhout, more or less in the heart of the Bulb Region. They offer a couple of bike tours with...

Both the House of Representatives and the Senate meet at the Binnenhof (Inner Court) here in the city centre. This is an interested...

    I have to admit that I was a little surprised by the gallery, there was a huge queue, and I waited in line for some 50 minutes. I should note that the queue was badly managed, and it was for those who wanted to attend the temporary exhibition that was running at the time (The Frick Collection from New York). I spent almost two hours exploring the...

    One of the joys of wandering without a plan is that you never know what is going to be round the next corner. That's how I discovered this wonderfully photogenic family of Coots nesting in the middle of the canal on the 5th Binnenvestgracht, where the University's Botanical Garden is. Eurasian Coots are quite common in the Netherlands due to their...

    This bridge, across the New Rhine, adjacent to the Stadhuis, was built in 1642 and was the site of the corn market (hence the name).

The marketplaces are now...

  • Academic Leiden

    Leiden Things to Do

    Kweekschool voor Zeevaar is the name of this building and there's a dedication to Prince Hendrik right above the portal. This, to me, is symbolic of the town inasmuch as schooling is one of its main attractions. Naturally enough, when that is the case, there's usually a vibrant youthful feel about the town. Thus it is so in Leiden.

    The Hague is often referred to as the green city for the abundance of parks within the city limits. The Haagse Bos (Den Haag Forest) extends right to the central train station and contains a small fenced area with deer. Personally, I’m most acquired with the forested parks between the centrum and the beach (Scheveningen). These wide swaths of...

    This was the next thing to catch my eye. In the 19th century people realized that polluted drinking water could cause cholera and typhus. They then came up with systems for the distribution of drinking water. The water came from ´clean´ areas where it was filtered in a natural way. After yet another epidemic of cholera in 1866, large cities got...
