24 Hours Instagram Diary – Netherlands

I’m currently back in the Netherlands and went on a 24H tour around the country to meet & greet with friends. When I rushed out the house in the morning, I forgot to take my photo camera with me, but took some shots on my phone and posted them on Instagram during the day. Here is my 24H Instagram diary.

Original element of the former church which now houses Belgian beer pub Olivier. I met a friend there for a delicious lunch (sadly without a Belgian beer due to antibiotics [insert VERY sad face here]…)

15.46 – Stadhuis Den Bosch

The town hall of Den Bosch, which  grew from a tiny 13th-century brick house into this grand building. The banners on the front depict details from paintings by prolific painter Jheronimus Bosch who was born in the city of Den Bosch in 1450 as Jheronimus van Aken. He adopted the city name and died there in 1516. His oeuvre is scattered over the world, but none of it remained in the Netherlands. For the 500th anniversary of the painter’s death, this year for the first time most of his works briefly return to their place of origin. You can visit the unique exhibition ‘Visions of Genius’ till 8 May 2016. More info here.
