The capital of Friesland
Leeuwarden is the start and ending point of the famous "Friese Elfstedentocht" (Frisian Eleven City Tour)! A city with a viceregal history, lots of monuments that remember of that time and a shopping centre with lots of special shops and good restaurants and bars. In the city centre you will find the remarkable "Oldehove", an old church almost as crooked as the tower of Pisa. In the summer period you can clime the "Oldehove", which offers you a breathtaking view over the city and the Frisian countryside even until the Wadden Sea!
Frisian Museum Leeuwarden
In every corner of the Frisian Museum you will find the wealth, luxury and glory of the past of Friesland: 17th century old Frisian silverware, the prominent portrays from the 16th and 17th century, the stylish Frisian costumes, the 18th century period rooms of the "Eysingahuis" and the mysteries of Mata Hari. This and much more can be found in one of the most beautiful museum of Friesland.
