The eleven cities of Friesland

The eleven cities of Fryslân

Friesland is famous for its 'eleven cities', due to the 200km 'eleven city ice skating tour' which is planned every year but only takes place when the ice allows it. Each ice skater had to get a stamp in each city as proof that they were there.


Now you have another purpose to visit each town, as for the Leeuwarden cultural capital 2018, artists from all over the world have created a fountain in each city matching the city characteristics. Have you seen them all?
