About this walking route

One of the oldest cities in the Netherlands filled with monuments and canals, that is Leeuwarden. The capital of Friesland is known, among other things, for the herbal liqueur Beerenburg, Cambuur, and Leeuwarden is the start and finish of the Elfstedentocht, the world's most iconic and famous ice- skating race in which 200 kilometers on natural ice must be covered along 11 Frisian cities. Dive into the stories of the city during this interesting audio tour of Leeuwarden. You walk, among others, along the Jacobijnerkerk, the Waag, Blokhuispoort and impressive statues such as Anne Vondeling and De Frisiaan. Moreover, it is not necessary to go to Pisa to admire a leaning tower. Find out the story of the leaning Oldehoven tower during this city walk
