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.

“Excellent hotel! Good quality for good price”

Friendly personel, dinner of the room service was really good! Fresh, don't taste like it's microwaved or premade. Spacious room and clean! You can even order another time of pillow from their pullow menu! Bed felt really nice! Breakfast was tasty. There are not a lot of vegetarian options though. We will definitely come nack to this hotel!

“Not to bad for the price”

I stay here nearly every other week for a few days as its nicely located right by the station. Rooms are ok but if you are at the front of the hotel it can be noisy doe to roadworks and building going on at the station opposite. Bar and Food are not to bad but cheaper and better alternatives can be found a short walk from the hotel in the main centre.

“Top notch service”

From the moment we arrived, the front desk staff were very greeting and warm. We travelled a conservable amount of distance to get here, so we were all beyond exhausted. The following days were nothing short of phenomenal here. The room service is great; they are all very attentive to their jobs and professional. Towels, restocking the refreshment refrigerator, tissue, nothing was left unattended to. The hotel bar service is stellar. If it was a separate part of the establishment, it would quickly turn a profit with the service there. That bar staff is awesome! The location is right in the middle of everything- the train and bus station are across the street from the hotel, the shopping and eating establishments are right around the corner. Even if a person wanted to go biking or walking, they can see all of the scenery by just stepping out of the hotel. The administration of the Oranje Hotel should put these people in for whatever awards and accolades they can earn because they have exceeded expectations. I hope to come back soon and stay again in the not too distant future. Mien Dank en Tot Ziens!!!
