I noticed that several bridges in Amsterdam are decorated this year with beautiful flowers, hadn't seen this before.This one is opposite the Rijksmuseum.
And here a view at the new renovated Rijksmuseum. In the middle you see a passage for pedestrians and cyclists to pass through to the Museum square at the other side. This passage was the sore point during the renovations of 10 years. Architects wanted to close the passage for traffic an use it only as an entrance to the museum. The League of Cyclists in Amsterdam has been fighting for years to keep the passage open for cyclists, which they won in the end in court.
This is the passage now, the entrances to the museum are in the passage as well are the cyclists. Fears for accidents, visitors run over by cyclists, hasn't happend so far.
