Discover Leeuwarden and surroundings

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.

From perfect espresso to delicious dinner

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. But you can also enjoy an extensive breakfast buffet and delicious lunch. The regularly changing menu offers a choice of sandwiches, salads and hot lunches. In the evenings you can visit Van Buren for an intimate dinner. In addition to à-la-carte dishes, the restaurant also offers a three-course menu every day.

“Nice hotel on a central spot in Leeuwarden”

A nice renovated moderate hotel. Rooms are designed for a 1 person stay. Bathrooms are just a little to tight. A good minibar. The breakfast is relative extended which compensates for the room. It is located near the trainstation and adjacent to the cities shopping center.

“Pretty much ideal for a quick visit by train”

We had a superior room. The good? Spacious, well-lit and almost exactly as specified. The less-than-good? Construction out front, some of the evening cafe staff were over-whelmed by an influx of guests and special events. The usual double-beds pushed together are not really a queen sized bed. But...comfortable with nice pillows. The bad? Nothing. We had a nice stay and it proved to be a good spot to wander the city from.

“Good for rail connections”

Stayed here whilst enroute by rail/sea to Terschelling. Received a friendly welcome and was impressed to be asked my preference for a room with a bath or shower. First I have been offered this on any of my many hotel stays. Room was clean and well maintined. Bed/duvet was soooo comfortable - didn't want to get out of it in the morning. All the staff were very friendly - definitely worth a stay
