Stay in Leeuwarden

There has never been a better time to visit Leeuwarden as it's the European Capital of Culure 2018!

Celebrating its European Capital of Culture of 2018 with hundreds of events, there has never been a better time to visit Leeuwarden (or as the Frisians call it: ‘Ljouwert’). Famous artists like M.C. Escher and the exotic dancer Mata Hari were born in this historical city. Feel free to join the various program of (cultural) activities taking place across Leeuwarden and Friesland and get more closely involved with our cultural heritage. The city center welcomes you for a whole day of shopping where you can walk through the narrow shopping streets or alongside of the centuries old canals. Do not forget to put the Fries Museum on your to-do list where you can discover the roots of Friesland. Definitely worth a visit!

You'll be able to add mobility equipment later on in the booking request process.
