Temporary exhibitions at Rijksmuseum

Besides all the Masterpieces (The Night Watch by Rembrandt van Rijn, The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer etc.) that you can see at the Rijksmuseum, there are two very interesting temporary exhibitions at the moment:

Girl in Kimono by Breitner
14 paintings of a Girl in Kimono painted by Breitner are displayed all together for the first time. There have been exhibitions in the past devoted to Japonism, but never have the paintings of a girl in kimono been displayed all together. There are also two kimonos from the same period as the ones worn in the paintings. From February 20th to May 22th 2016. More information: https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/breitner

Hi there, my name is Sandra and Amsterdam is the city where I was born. In my opinion, this city is amazing! We have so many good restaurants from all around the world, beautiful museums, romantic canals, city parks, a world famous concert hall etc. And the great thing about Amsterdam is that it is a really small city. It actually is a big village compared to other cities in the world. I have been a host to many people staying at my apartment and they always told me that they loved their stay in Amsterdam so much thanks to all my recommendations. After receiving so much positive feedback I decided I want to share all these cool places with the rest of the world. When I travel myself (I have been to many places all around the globe) I love to end up at those special places that are not stuffed with tourists, but where I will always remember that wonderful dish that was prepared with so much love, or where the staff just made me feel so welcome that I spent all day or night at that specific place. I hope that my recommendations will contribute to your unique experiences in this beautiful city.
