With still so much more to do in Amsterdam, it was another early morning to try and beat the crowds. The first thing on our list was the Van Gogh Museum which is situated in the Museumplein.It was amazing to see the works of art of Van Gogh through his life time. They also set out other paintings by friends, contemporaries and influences that really showed how Vincent’s style progressed. It was also interesting to see good impressionist paintings hung so that you can appreciate them as intended from about 4 metres away. Unfortunately, you were not allowed to take photos inside the exhibition.
After the museum, we wandered again through the streets of Amsterdam, this time outside of the core city circle and discovered many beautiful photo opportunities. After all the walking, we settled down to a nice cup of tea before heading to the supermarket for supplies on our way back to the hotel.
Tomorrow we leave the Netherlands and head back into Germany, it’s a long day of driving, so an early night and early start tomorrow morning.
