From Wijk bij Duurstede to Arnhem

First thing in the morning, Ton informed us about roundabouts & other essential elements of biking in the Netherlands, and his custom of posting bicyclists at every turn of the route.

Then we boarded a bus to the Hoge Veluwe National Park, which houses the Kröller-Müller Museum.

The Kröller-Müller Museum is named after Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939). She collected almost 11,500 art objects with the help of her advisor, H.P. Bremmer and the wealth of her own and her husband Anton Kröller, director of Wm. H. Müller & Co. Helene Kröller dreamt of a 'museum-home', a dream that came true in 1938 when the Rijksmuseum Kröller-Müller opened its doors. Helene Kröller-Müller was its first director, but only for a year until her death. A sculpture gallery was added in 1953, which is now one of the largest in Europe. We have one picture to show for our hours in this magical place. (Click here to link to a short film about the museum.)

We returned to the barge, then proceeded to Arnhem, which was in the last day of the World Statues Festival. How "people statues" can stand so still for so long boggles the mind.
