Dutch Masters

Classic canal side houses

Housing at Borneo Sporenburg

Easter in Amsterdam

We enjoyed some warm spring sunshine on a recent trip to Amsterdam over Easter and taken in the delights of the Dutch Masters. Whilst the Vermeers and Van Goghs are impressive so is the Dutch mastery of brickwork and their solutions for housing.

Architecturally, there is almost too much to see but we recommend the newly remodelled Rijksmuseum and a cycle tour of both old and new buildings taking in classic canal-side houses, Van de Klerk, Berlage and the modern buildings of the eastern docks.
