Den Haag  -  The Hague

One day we took the train to The Hague and visited Mauritshuis. A small museum with a giant collection! 

A collection of world-famous paintings by Dutch and Flemish masters.  The museum is in a beautiful mansion and it includes works by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Steen, Hals and Rubens. Here are a few pictures of our route from the train station to the museum, its surroundings and a few samples of the collection.

The Central Station, the street leading to the museum and the ever-present bicycle parking/garage.
