Along Plantage Middenlaan:

Plantage Middelaan is one of this city's most delightful, and often monumental, thoroughfares; at its southeastern edge is the Muiderpoort, then the Muiderpoortbrug, and then the Tropenmuseum. Its boulevardesque atmosphere quickly dissipates at its northwestern edge, which has, just these past few weeks, undergone the most dramatic of transformations; grass is now to be found between the tram tracks of the stretch that winds its way through Wertheim Park; no cars–bicycles only, please.
