Dokkum
The Essential
Located in the north of Friesland, Dokkum nestles behind the remains of its ramparts, above which rise towers and tall windmills. This small town is built on a mound and was once a flourishing port. It was here that St Boniface was executed (754). He came to convert Friesland to Christianity in 716, and met his death during his second mission here.
