I had some incredible herring at a stand near the Riks museum. When I went back in 2007, there was construction at the site, and the stand was closed. Does anyone know if it has reopened?

    Just read an article in Amsterdam local paper "Het Parool" that the famous herring stand by the Rijksmuseum has been demolished:

    Owner Piet van Altena was famous for serving the best herring in town. According to the article he had bad health and was frustrated over endless quarreling with the county.
