Hampshire Hotel – Oranje Leeuwarden is very centrally situated, close to Leeuwarden’s historic city centre. On leaving the hotel you’ll find yourself in an outdoor museum within just a few minutes. Take the time for an extensive city walk along the monumental city walls, through parks and past houses and churches. And climb the slanting Oldehove tower, with its beautiful views across the city. A few tips:
The Fries Museum is comprehensive: archaeology, modern and contemporary art, and a collection about the spy extraordinary Mata Hari, who was born in Leeuwarden as Margaretha Zelle. The Fries Verzetsmuseum is also part of the Fries Museum. Natuurmuseum Fryslân is a great day out for the whole family. You can see a sperm whale from close quarters, take a flight above Fryslân or walk on the bottom of a ditch.
Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie is one of the largest theatres in the Netherlands. It has an extensive range of large and smaller performances (theatre, music, dance, musicals and cabaret).
The history of De Prinsentuin begins in 1648. Today, the park is the place to relax in the summer months and enjoy concerts and festivals.
On the water
Walked enough? Then why not discover Leeuwarden by boat? You can hire small boats from various boat hire companies.
In Aqua Zoo Friesland children come face-to-face with fur seals, seals, penguins and other sea animals. And they can really let themselves go in the playground.
If we ever hear the historic words “it giet oan” then Leeuwarden is the place to be. Because it’s the start and finish of the Elfstedentocht.
Restaurant Van Buren
Whatever the time of day, you’re always welcome in Van Buren restaurant. Try the most delicious coffee (Pizza d’Oro) and tea (Betjeman & Barton), or a perfectly made espresso, cappuccino or latte macchiato.
