Tips for a happy Easter

Next Sunday is Easter. Finished hunting for eggs or having brunch with the in-laws and want to get out and about? MASTERS lists a number of activities that guarantee a wonderful Easter.

Culinary Easter lunch

In the seventeenth century, the Dutch republic experienced enormous growth, both economically and culturally. Many wealthy Amsterdammers fled the city at that time because of the sewage smell from the canals. Many country estates were created during this time. This also applies to the Duin en Kruidberg estate. In 2023 you can enjoy a four-course Easter lunch in the renovated restaurant in the middle of the wooded landscape.  

 

St. Matthew Passion in the Concertgebouw 

De St. Matthew Passion is considered the favorite composition in the Netherlands during the Passion time. Created by Johann Sebastian Bach, the piece tells the Passion story of Christ in which symbolism plays a major role. Bach wrote specific roles for both instruments and soloists. The narrator takes you as a visitor through the story and is alternated by the choir. The concert can be attended this Sunday, April 9, both in the evening and in the afternoon.
