Subjects: History and Architecture. Academic architectural tour by scholar-lecturer, art historian Drs. Kees Kaldenbach.

Drs Kees Kaldenbach: „…he is wildly overqualified to be a guide . That is his secret… Trust me on this.” Gabe. Statement made February, 2017.


The architectural walks I perform are well received by architects, school groups, builders, real estate developers etc.

I also guide architectural professors and students – and in November, 2016 I guided an Israeli city planner: “Kees, thank you very much for a lovely tour. you were kind enough to adjust to our dates and costs. the tour was very interesting, and you showed a lot of knowledge which gave it an added value. The conversion was flowing, and it was just like walking with a friend! We definitely recommend you to other people. Thx, Assaf & Gal”

“Drs. Kees, Typically when I review art, I am impressed with its sheer beauty, its value or the reputation of the artist.  I wanted to express my gratitude to you for sharing the artist’s feelings, the phase of the artist’s life and explaining how this was expressed in their art.  Your in-depth study of shadows, lighting and subtle objects in the paintings made my time in the museum exponentially better.  I will be able to take what I’ve learned to enjoy other works of art in the future. Thank you. I also appreciate the architectural tour you developed knowing we are builders by trade. Greetings, Jeff.”

Silodam from the end of the man-made dam. To the left an apartment building looking like shipping containers. This building is erected on stilts. Itr has a nifty protection against ships getting off-course.

Same building, on the side of the water, looking down from the terrace, which is open to everyone.


Towards the WESTERN end of the harbour there is the very interesting Silodam, with its own story attached. Part dates from the 1890s, a much later brightly coloured part from the 1980s. An underground robot parking system makes it possible for many people to live here and park their cars.


Larger images + youtube movies are available on this old school site.


Spooky image from the water, on a misty day, with a Hydrofoil bought in Russia. Runs no more after it crashed!.

Situated in the 1890s, a grain silo for feeding the population in times of war.
