Great shots, some of the pictures look like (Dutch) golden age paintings.

De Waag

The Amsterdam Waag is a remnant of the former city walls in Amsterdam. Constructed in 1488, it was originally one of the city gates, the Sint Anthoniespoort. When the city wall disappeared, the Nieuwmarkt (new market) was created around it and the weighing scales for the market were placed in the former gate. Today the building houses the Waag Society, an ICT research foundation working in the social and cultural domain, and there is a café/restaurant on the ground floor.

Excellent photo tour, Dutchal!

I'm surprised that people are allowed to go out and skate around on the ice. It looks extremely thin and dangerous, with open water all over the place.

But yes, Winter 2011-12 has been unreal. Extremely mild in North America, and extremely cold in Europe and Asia. Here in Minnesota where ice and snow is expected for at last 4-5 months each winter, there's almost none to speak of. Weird weather, indeed!

Dear Jennifat,

Thx for your reaction .We were surprised by such a cold. Till then high temperatures and a lot of rain.
No problems skating and walking on the ice etc if you follow the instructions.They put ribbons on the dangerous places and if the ice is more than 15cmtrs you can even take your car on the ice.

gr ab
