About 6km east of Harlingen, the quaint town of Franeker squirrels away the world's oldest working planetarium. A well-preserved town centre clearly designed with casual summertime ambling in mind rounds off a half-day visit here. The town was once a big player in education, until Napoleon closed its university down in 1810.
