Today, through the rainy weather, we biked to the Amstel and took another visit to the Hermitage, this time it was a guided tour by Bureau Boeiend of Amsterdam: Classic Beauties of the 18th Century.
This time, I only have pictures of the statues.
Today, 16th of September 2018, it became a very beautiful and sunny Sunday. I left home at around noon and returned half past 3. My walk took me from Old-West along the Rozengracht through the midtown area towards the east part of the center and back. According to my pedometer 8922 steps…
The Amsterdam tower was built for Shell in 1970-1971 and is located oppposite the rear of the Amsterdam Central station, across the river ‘Het IJ’. At first it has been in use as the Amsterdam Shell headquarters, it was abandoned during the crisis after the Internet bubble crash and was then bought by a project developer. The building has been empty for some years and has recently been refurbished in 2015, whilst added with a top view restaurant. And- nice to see : 2 swing sets (at approx. 80-85 meters height) that take you out over the edge of the roof when you swing forward. The view over the City is magnificent, since there are not too many tall buildings in Amsterdam. I still have to go there, will do that this winter and I will put my pictures up here.
