We had a Day ticket to use up so we decided on a trip to Leiden. Unfortunately the train was late so we missed our connection which then turned out to be 40 minutes late anyway. So change of plan, where can we go from Schipol? Rotterdam!
The train station has nearly completed a renovation and it’s very impressive architecture. We walked into town to find the Tourist Information and the route is all pedestrianised and lined with shops.
We then visited the Maritime Museum and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen which had a painting by Bruegel that we had also seen in Vienna, the Tower of Babel. This one is called Little Tower of Babel and was painted the same year, 1563.
Ate at the Bazar, a huge place serving Middle Eastern food at very reasonable prices.
