The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

This memorial stands in tribute to Queen Wilhemina, who was the Queen of Netherlands during the Second World War.

The equestrian sculpture is fairly simple and depicts a younger version of the queen on a leisurely ride, sitting aside on a sidesaddle. Nice enough and a bit of history to go with it. Not a must-see, but memorial is centrally located and easy to get to

This is an equestrian statue of Wilhemina, the Queen of the Netherlands (1890-1948). It is the works of Dutch architect Theresia Reiniera van der Pant and was unveiled at this location along Rokin in 1964.

Here you find a young version of Wilhemina dressed in gown and hat and riding horseback in a leisurely manner. Its a nice depiction of Queen and is worth spending a few minutes to view for those with interest in statues and monuments who pass by this area of the city centre.

This statue is in a kind of out of the way place. Yet I found myself walking past it several times. It’s large and looks well done. Worth a glance.

Nice statue, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. That said there are not many bronze statues of successful women on horses. A credit to womenkind, however, just another bronze landmark to keep the pigeons happy.

This is a statue of a lady on horseback that stands along busy Rokin Street. The lady is actually Queen Wilhelmina, who was Queen of the Netherlands in the late 19th century through the middle of the 20th century.

This is a pretty average looking statue. It is in the Rokin area and there are other more interesting sites around.

A large statue of a lady on a horse situated at a popular tourist junction. The statue is looking a bit worn and weathered now though.
