SCHOONHOVEN:

 

 

 

This cosy terrace is from the Restaurant Eethuijs De Waag on the Dam in Schoonhoven. A good place for pancakes. 

 

The statue in front is a silversmith and on the right, behind “De Waag” you find the Gold-, Silver- and Clock Museum, a very good equipped and pleasant museum with a lift and a toilet for invalids. To reach it, it is best to go into the shopping street and take the first left and through

the gate on your left, because the Dam has very sloping sides which makes it treacherous to walk.

 

The VVV Tourist office is found underneath the City Hall and to reach it, one has to take two very old stone steps downwards and then land

on a grill – not at all easy! In the office changing art exhibitions are being held.

Somewhat further on down the street – not easy for the less mobile – is the Dutch Museum for Scissors Art. Small, but very much worth wile.

There is exhibition room upstairs, but no elevator.

 

The beautiful water tower, which you can spot from afar, holds a Gallery with silver objects. Steps and stairs everywhere, but the tower itself

worth a visit, though very hard to find.
