When you step off the train in Apeldoorn and leave the station for Apeldoorn center, you are sure to encounter this sculpture, this thing, called "De Kus" (the kiss). Art is sometimes what you make of it but this piece of metal defies imagination. It...More

as you can see on the picture it is a very nice statue, remembering the marriage of Willem Alexander and Maxima on 2-2-2002. The environment is also nice: based on the Veluwe: the environment in which Apeldoor is situated.
