The newly opened Rijksmuseum
Art aficionados will flock to the newly opened Rijksmuseum. It was only reopened after 10 year's of restoration by Queen Beatrice of the Netherlands this spring. The restoration cost a whopping EUR 375 million. I had seen it years ago and was impressed with it smasterpuieces even then. Dedicated to the arts and history of the Netherlands, it hosts an innumerable amount of invaluable "old Masters." And our exchnage partners had kindly given us two free tickets!
It's situated near the Van Gogh Museum in the museum quarter of Amsterdam.
Of course, the picture of Van Gogh is a must-see. And the coffee shop isn't bad either...:)
