Arnhem and the Kröller-Müller Museum

Saturday the 25th of October


Victoria Hotel


For our next day trip, we are going to the east side of the Netherlands: Arnhem and the Kröller-Müller Museum. Arnhem is the capital of the central province Gelderland, located in one of the few areas that the Netherlands may call nature; de Veluwe. The Kröller-Müller Museum is also located in the middle of this area. This stunning museum has paintings by many famous painters, such as van Gogh, Seurat, Picasso and Mondriaan. You can also walk around in their huge sculpture garden. Take the opportunity to see a wholly different side of the Netherlands. Get your ticket at our office or online. You can also find this event on Facebook.

PINT Bokbierfestival

24-26th of October

Beurs van Berlage

The biggest beer festival in the Netherlands returns to Amsterdam for three days. They have over 50 types of ‘bock beer’ on tap. Bock beers are originally dark beers which are typically sold in the autumn, but nowadays you can also get paler and amber tints. You get a glass at the entrance of this festival which you can fill with delicious beers all evening, while listening to live music. The entrance fee is around 10 euros at the door (to be clear, this is not organized by ISN, so you can’t buy tickets at our office). Read more about bock beers here. Cheers!
