Nijntje – Markenzeichen Hasi


Nijntje, the shortening of konijntje, “little rabbit” is very popular here. The first book she stars was first written by Dick Bruna in 1955 and as the “Hasi” freak that I am, I immediately fell in love with her. Not in 1955 of course, but when I saw her while window shopping in Amsterdam. The city is full of Nijntjes, Nijntje on souvenirs, on cups, shirts, pins… On my next trip I want to visit the Nijntje statue at the Nijntjepleintje in Utrecht. Searching some info about Nijntje on the internet I found this wonderful website. She helps me improving my Dutch knowledge ( Now I know how to say rood, blauw, groen and geel!).

Häschen Nijntje, was die Abkürzung für konijntje “Kleiner Hase” ist, ist in den Niederlanden sehr berühmt. Das kleine Häschen ist die Hauptfigur der gleichnamigen Bücherserie der niederländischen Schriftstellerin Dick Bruna, die zum ersten Mal 1955 veröffentlicht wurde. Und als der richtige Hasifan, der ich nun mal bin, habe ich sie sofort ins Herz geschlossen. Nicht 1955, aber während ich gestern Schaufenster gucken war. Amsterdam ist voll von Nijntjes. Nijntje auf der Tasse, Nijntje als Figur, Nijntje auf dem T-shirt, als Schlüsselanhänger… Meine nächste Reise muß mich nach Utrecht führen, um die Nijntje Statue zu besichtigen. Während ich mehr Informationen über dieses süße Häschen gesucht habe, bin ich auf dieser wunderbaren Webseite. gelandet. Ich habe dank ihr meine Niederländisch Kenntnisse aufgefrischt: rood, blauw, groen, geel… und Nijntje noch mehr ins Herz geschlossen.
