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...More

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.

I actually liked this statue and certainly like its meaning. I found it hard to get a good photo as where it is placed. Quite a busy area with boats, pedestrians, trains and those damn bikes. Worth visiting and love this area.

Unveiled in 1972, this is the equestrian statue of Queen Wilhelmina sitting rather high up and you will come across it if you are in the Rokin area by the canal.
