Travel Guide in Friesland

Friesland is an idyllic province in the Netherlands, famous for its vast lakes and unique culture and cuisine. Holiday lettings in Friesland are a fantastic choice for water and winter sports enthusiasts, with plenty of opportunities for ice skating, sailing and hiking. You could choose cottages in Friesland's small town of Workum, and spend days boating on Lake Ijssel, or head to the lively capital of the province, Leeuwarden, and explore its historic centre. Wherever you choose to stay, and whatever you'd like to do, renting holiday accommodation in Friesland promises a truly unforgettable break.

Things to Do in Friesland

Head to Friesland in the summer months, and you'll want to spend time on the province's lakes: Lake Ijssel in Workum is one of the most beautiful, and provides the perfect setting for sunny days on the water. Choose holiday rentals in Friesland during the winter, however, and you can still spend your days exploring Workum's centre: take a trip to the famous Jopie Huisman Museum, or eat sweet, local cookies and cakes like Fryske dúmkes and Sûkerbôle. Mudflat hiking is also a popular activity in Friesland: you can reach the Frisian Islands with a guide during low tide, and take a trip to Ameland Island's beautiful beaches.

Places to See in Friesland

There are lots of places to visit in Friesland, and luckily, excellent transport routes means you can view most attractions with ease. Travel out to the Frisian Islands which stretch from the Netherlands to Denmark, or take in the historical sites of the medieval capital Leeuwarden. Alternatively, travel around Friesland's many picturesque villages, which include Stavoren, Hindeloopen and Lemmer. Hindeloopen is famous for its art and beautiful bridges, whilst Lemmer is a UNESCO World Heritage site: its large steam-powered pumping station is the only of its kind in operation, having pumped Friesland's excess water out since the beginning of the 20th century.
