Leeuwarden
The Essential
Interesting
Once the former residence of the Frisian stathouders, today Leeuwarden is the attractive lively capital of Friesland with many pretty canals and historic buildings. The town is famous as the starting and finishing point of the "11-city" cycling event but owes its reputation to the important place it occupies in the Netherlands' dairy industry. Mata Hari and M.C. Escher are among the famous people born in Leeuwarden.
