Dutch and landscape paintings are well renowned for their realism and the beautiful way they describe the landscape. Even today they are a good resource to study changes in the landscape. While the conference addressed modern-era pedometrics with all its advances, this excursion will take you back to the fascinating story that is being told by Dutch painters. We will visit one the locations where art and landscape are clearly intertwined: the Hoge Veluwe National Park and the Kröller-Müller Museum that is located inside the park (the museum is well-known for its collection of Van Gogh paintings).
