The city is the location of the start and finish of the Frisian ice-skating race, the Elfstedentocht. Eat out in the pleasant restaurants, see a theatre show at De Harmonie or go to a tasting at the Beerenburg Museum.
To see the city from a different perspective, take a romantic trip for two or a family group on a flatboat. As you travel through the city centre youll learn about the history of Leeuwarden. Leeuwarden is surrounded by beautiful lakes, giving you plenty of opportunities for sailing in summer!
