Close by we peeked through a set of iron gates to a French-style garden of the 17th century Willet - Holthuysen mansion/museum entered off Herengracht 60. Among the many beautifully restored rooms we noted the dining room with its Meissen porcelain and chandelier over the table centre of fruits and sweets, the bedroom with the blue damask canopied twin beds and the glass domed stucco and marble central stairwell with statues from the story of the Judgement of Paris. The furnishings are of the period but were not the original pieces.
We now took a break with a half- day tour to Lisse passing fields of flowers in rainbow colours like a grand tapestry enroute to the Keuenhof (kitchen) Gardens. We were transfixed with its perfection of garden design and colour combinations - a canvas of tulips and other Spring flowers, gurgling waterways and delicate shadows framed by a cloudless sunny day. A photographer’s paradise!
Returning to the Jordan area and on a more somber note we visited the Anne Frank House, now a museum with a story. It was the hiding place where Ann Frank wrote her diary with quotations, photographs, films and original objects to illustrate events that took place during the Second World War.
From Vondelpark it was but a stone’s throw to the Hollandsche Manege (live horse museum) and the oldest riding school in the Netherlands with as many as fifty-five horses. The riding hall entrance is off Vondelstraat 38 with a refreshment room upstairs, film presentation and opportunity to watch the riding lessons. Another city gem!
Whether an art connoisseur or one of casual interest, the Museumplein is understandably the diamond in the crown with three world renowned art museums heralded by sculptured red and white letters ‘I AMSTERDAM’ reflecting in the plaza pool. After a ten year makeover the re - born Rijksmuseum opened with a new Asian wing and over 800 years of Dutch masterpieces. Co-incidentally the Van Gogh Museum opened the day of our visit after its seven month face lift with the largest collection in the world of his impressionist paintings. Almost next door, the Stedelijk Museum with its contemporary collection recently unveiled its new addition dubbed the ‘bathtub’ with its cantilevered roof over the interior restaurant extension. The world renowned Royal Concertgebouw concert hall is but a few steps away and walking distant to the quiet retreat of the Hortus Botanicus, the oldest botanic gardens in the world.
