Pocket Guide: Friesland

Hotels @ Friesland

Beautiful lakes and the magical Elfstedentocht are just two things that make Friesland so attractive; with the versatile cities of Leeuwarden and Heerenveen, the harbour of Harlingen and the Wadden Islands attracting the crowds each summer. Friesland is also particularly popular during Harlinger Visserijdagen, the Sneekweek and Oerol, which are all considered top tourist attractions.


Leeuwarden is the capital of Friesland and well worth a visit. As you might expect from a regional capital, the city has plenty of attractions, such as the Oldehove: a century-old tilted clock tower that was never finished. The Frisian Museum and the Palace of Justice should also not be missed.


Harlingen has the most important harbour in Friesland and is the starting point from where ferries sail to the Wadden Islands. It is a beautiful place to relax and watch the passing ships with a good Dutch beer in hand.

The Islands

The Wadden Islands are well known for their relaxed atmosphere and has the second highest sand dune in the Netherlands. Terschelling on the other hand is a bit livelier and makes a great summer retreat for those looking for an active summer break. Ameland and Schiermonnikoog are popular for their cycling cycle routes, running for approximately 100 km. For those looking for hiking opportunities or nature lovers, visit the Boschplaat: a European nature reserve where you can spot dozens of bird species.
