The lost canal

The winged hourglass and skull depict a theme in art called ‘vanitas‘. This Latin word stands for emptiness and transience.

Continue clockwise past the church and pass the fortress on top of the water pump.

You arrive at the (muted) Hooglandse Kerkgracht. If you ignore the middle part of this street, you can imagine what the canal would have looked like.

Search for a door where ''Kikkerberg'' is written on.

Across the Kikkerberg there's another hidden courtyard; het Mierennesthofje.

How many wallflowers can be counted left of this courtyard.
