Leeuwarden (Ljouwert)

Introducing Leeuwarden (Ljouwert)

While many visitors to Friesland head directly for the islands, don't pass through without making a stop in Leeuwarden, the province's capital. This compact, laid-back and pretty town is worth a visit, if only to explore its superb trinity of museums. Spending the night here will also allow time to wander its peaceful old streets and sample some of the northern hospitality, something easily found in its many bars and cafes.
