While staying in the Netherlands, we decided to go and visit the Heineken brewery – taking the “Heineken Experience”.
It’s really a fun experience – from a motion cinema to the horses to the old brewery to the tasting rooms 🙂

Haarlem Central Station

Leaving from Haarlem to Amsterdam, we found the Central Station quite impressive.
And the trains were fast, on time and not expensive – an overall win and much easier than going by car.


View of the Netherlands

Looking on to the windmills at Zaanse Schans in the Netherlands – unfortunately, the weather refused to cooperate but it’s been a fun afternoon nevertheless.

Visiting the windmills in Zaanse Schans was a fun part of visiting the Netherlands – it was a spur of the moment decision and the host at our bed and breakfast recommended it to us.
Quite touristy, but fun nevertheless!

One more photographs from the trip to the Netherlands – our one visit to a wind mill.
We get to take this picture in a windmill park – at Zaanse Schans – very nice, though the weather was not exactly cooperative.

Den Haag – Departement van Justitie

One more photograph from our trip to the Netherlands in 2009 – this time from the visit to Den Haag.
We had some time we spent wandering about the city and admiring the buildings – especially this one!
