Grootschermer, September 2016…
When you drive up north to Grootschermer (just 45 minutes from Amsterdam), you will find a picturesque landscape, typical of Holland. This area was born from the struggle against water. Here you will find dikes, polders, windmills, boat locks, dome-shaped farms, cows, cheese, tulips, potatoes and many water birds. The internationally renowned artist Nic Jonk (1928 – 1994), was born here and the unspoiled setting is picture perfect to admire 30 of his giant bronze sculptures and the painting collection inside the museum. His son, Zeger, continued his lifework and will personally welcome you with coffee or tea and Schermer cake. On request, private visits can be arranged. After the visit, we drove through the Beemster countryside (Unesco world heritage site) and visited the Museum windmill in Schermerhorn and had lunch in the charming village “De Rijp”. If you want to stay longer in this area, there are some great B&B’s. Also a spa resort located in a converted fortress.
