Discover the world of the Dutch masters


We call the 17th century the 'Golden Age'. The new born Republic of the Netherlands was extremely wealthy and its citizens were very confident. The painting industry was booming. More than 5 million paintings have been made during the Golden Age, more than anywhere else in that period. Some of the painters are now world famous, think of Rembrandt, Frans Hals or Vermeer.

We will walk in the footsteps of Rembrandt and see the places where he used to live and work. Some locations have been unchanged since his time and you will learn more about his life in his own environment. We combine the walk with a visit to the world famous Rijksmuseum where you can admire the real work of Rembrandt and his contemporaries! Learn everything about the different painting genres and admire the marvellous paintings of the Dutch masters. The Rijksmuseum is our biggest treasury for art and history. The building is already a piece of art in itself.

Join me on this tour and let the paintings come to life again!
