Escher in The Palace

€20 pp plus lunch and transportation costs

Escher in The Palace is a permanent exhibition dedicated to the world-famous artist M.C. Escher, whose art startles millions of people all over the world.

With over 150 prints you can always see the best known works and a changing selection of graphic work and tessellations from the complete works of Maurits C. Escher (1898-1972). Highlight of the visit and crown on the exhibition is the 7 meters long Metamorphosis III. This enormous woodcut and the non-conventional way of displaying it lets the visitor actually experience Escher combining time and space as an organic unity.

The tour of the museum will be provided by an English speaking guide and will last for about one hour. We will then take some time to play in the world of Escher in the interactive exhibit.

Afterwards, those who wish are invited to walk to a nearby café for lunch before returning back to the Marriott or elsewhere.
