Hapsburg - Renaissance Trip - Out Of Amsterdam

We decided to do something outside of Amsterdam on Thursday. Originally we were headed for an island on the North Sea coast but a combination of the length of time it would take us to get there combined with the not nice weather made us change our plans and go to one of the many smaller cities in Amsterdam

Hence by foot, metro, and rail

We reached

The home town of Hyeronimus Bosch where he lived his entire life.
The Artist
 

We crossed over the bridge into the old town




In search for the gastronomic treat of the town the:


A fabulous cream puff




That has the thinnest of pate a choux balls with a dark chocolate outside and a lightly sweetened whipped cream center.



It as a great old center square

There's cool modern architecture



Examples of the Medieval Heritage



A top of lingerie shops



A really nifty canal ride in open boats
(much better than the highly tourist ride in Amsterdam)

video













A fine old town center






And a really great Gothic Cathedral with fine stained glass windows
