If your car's up to the snowy trip and you feel like undertaking something else during the holidays, I recommend visiting the Afrika Museum
. The other day I was there once again as a jury member of the Blueprints of Paradise competition
, and only the view of a Malian Dogon village in the snow was worth the trip to Berg en Dal (near Nijmegen). Moreover inside you'll find a very special temporary exposition, put together by curator Siebe Rossel, connecting contemporary and traditional African art. Wooden masks next to masks out of jerry cans: the result is captivating.
