Spectacular, intricate and intriguing works of a great Dutch artist. The palace itself is en passant also worth visiting.

Excellent and very substantial collection of Eschers, very well interpreted with several rooms showing his artistic development. Grand palatial setting and some fun optical illusion installations on the upper floor.
