Holiday Park; Among nature
This park offers excellent options for exploring the province of Friesland. Many places of interest lie nearby, like the historic city centre of Franeker. The cosy inner-city of this town, famous for being one of the eleven cities of the Elfstedentocht (a large skating event), is just a stone's throw away. If you would like to explore the area from an original point of view, you can hire a canoe at the dock of the park. For cycling lovers there are a number of routes like the Elfstedenroute (Eleven Cities Route). Remarkable sites in Franeker include the town hall, built in Renaissance style in 1591; the Martini church; the old courtyards; the famous Elfstedenbruggetje (bridge) and the old weighing house on Voorstraat where the tourist information centre is located. The planetarium of Eise Eisinga is also a nice place to visit. It's the oldest continually operating planetarium in the world. If you would like to enjoy the Frisian waters, a boat tour on one of the Frisian lakes or a day trip to one of the islands like Terschelling or Vlieland, will make for an unforgettable day. Sea fishing in Harlingen is also a very good option.
