Geschiedenis op straat
Picturesque villages, impressive churches and monuments tell their stories about the past. As long as you know what to look for, you can find history on the streets. This unique guide offers not only tours through the Netherlands past and present, but also forms an excellent introduction to the country, presented in two main themes: ‘the emergence of the Dutch state’ and ‘A country of civilians’.
Written in an accessible format by prominent historians, the book offers practical information for visitors combined with a historical perspective intended for a wide audience. The book contains about seventeen walking tours and two journeys along historically important places that left a mark on the Netherlands and the Dutch.
The book will describe not only tours, but provides the reading audience also with practical visitor information for each location including public transport, useful websites and tourist information points. This book could be used as an excellent basis for, or a supplement to, a website aimed at general audience. It will be available in bookshops, museums, tourist information centres and websites.
