Hand-picked by Hans, Pinnable provides an overview of museums, monuments, castles & palaces, churches, industrial heritage sites & railway lines, as well as parks & zoos. A small number of pins is devoted to other stuff, such as food & shopping.
Because Hans is not much of a polyglot, most pins are located on the maps of Dutch-, German- & English-speaking countries. And because his four kids don’t like fun, you won’t find theme parks on Pinnable. (That being said, their father’s childhood dream, Legoland in Billund, did make it to the map.)
Pinning new places
New places are added whenever Hans & his family are planning their holidays or when he debriefs his friends after they return from travel. If you want to suggest a place to put on the map, for example the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, please send a tweet with the URL of its website:
Suggestions that fit Pinnable’s editorial concept (i.e., that are consistent with Hans’ personal preferences) will be included in the next update of the website.
Holiday home exchange pinboard
On the Pinboard page you will find an overview of family homes that are available for holiday home exchange, as well as affordable commercial holiday homes. If your home can accommodate five people or more & you want to have it listed for house swapping, please follow Pinnable on Twitter & send a tweet to get in touch:
You will receive a direct message in reply. Commercial holiday homes cannot apply for inclusion on the Pinboard; only those that Hans recommends from his own experience are listed.
Pinnable is a non-commercial project. However, it is possible to highlight certain information on the home page under What’s On, or as ‘starred content’ across the website. If you want to advertise on this website, please follow Pinnable on Twitter & send a tweet to get in touch:

Copyright & licensing
Feel free to copy data from individual pins, but do not copy Pinnable’s data set or other content.

Hans is excessively fond of cookies, but this website has no taste for them. Pinnable does not gather information about its visitors, basically because yours truly doesn’t really care who you are — unless of course you are interested in doing a house swap.
