Sneek is one of the largest cities in the province Friesland and is well-known for its canals and watersports. During the 2- or 4-hour boat tour the skipper will show you the nicest and most intimate spots of Sneek while informing about the rich history of the city. Since Sneek has more to offer you then just from the water, there is a walking tour included.
What you will see during the walking tour:
Martinikerk (Martini church): the largest medieval building in the city
Waterpoort: a beautiful water gate with a tower on each side and a gatekeeper’s house above the bridge.
Weduwe Joustra: a distillery in which the so called ‘Beerenburg’ is made, a liquor with over 70 herbs. All visitors can taste a drink of the famous Frisian Beerenburg and visit the museum.
Anchor monument on the water: once you arrived at the anchor monument, an ice queen awaits you to tell something about the Frisian Elfstedentocht (the "Eleven Cities Tour"; the biggest ice-skating tour in the world)
C&A: one of the most longest lasting and pioneering retailers in the global fashion business. People in historical costumes will give you more information about the history of the inner city and the origins of C&A.
Sloten: the tour guide will walk you through the smallest city of the Frisian eleven cities.
