A cultural New Year's day in Amsterdam

1 January 2016, a cultural New Years day spent in the Rijks Museum in Amsterdam and when it started to get dark walking the route of the the Amsterdam Light Festival. 

The building of the Rijks Museum itself is worth visiting for sure. It has been utterly refurbished, which took several years, but it shows. 

A lot of famous paintings by Rembrandt and Vermeer to be admired in this museum.
