Art @ Amstelveen

It turns out you don’t have to go to New York to see art from the Guggenheim museum. You can do it in Amstelveen – note the greenish writing on the window of the museum in the top left picture. The museum is quite small, but has some fun stuff: The arc in the top right picture actually makes music!

To see modern art, I don’t even have to go to the Amstelveen museum. The following pictures are from my hotel-appartment:

Impressions of Amstelveen

Amstelveen is a small town South of Amsterdam. Its name means Amstel marsh, where Amstel is the river that also names Amsterdam, the Amstel dam. It’s quite pretty, as these photos of places near my apartment show:

From the window of my apartment, I have a gorgeous sunset view:
