Last week we spent a day in the Dutch city of Rotterdam, which is just a one-hour train-ride away from Amsterdam.

Here’s our visual impression of the second largest city of The Netherlands, which is famous for it’s architecture, maritime heritage and extensive cultural life. Our more in depth story will follow soon, but here you can already read more about the architectural marvel of the cube houses.

About The Author: Lydian Brunsting


'To be with Art is all we ask'- Gilbert and George. A quote that has stayed with me since I first saw it a couple of years ago. The word I would add though is 'travel' and that is, in fact, Art Weekenders, our new creation. The Art Weekenders project combines my passions for art, travel and photography, while we - at the same time - like to inspire and hopefully help you to prepare your art getaway. I am also photographer, writer and developer of the photoblog SHOuTography, a project that I started during a year of travelling through South-America to explore my life-long passion for photography.
