Hindeloopen
Description:

A small Frisian town that was an important merchant center in the past. Hindeloopen is one of the well-known eleven Frisian towns hosting a winter skating marathon. It’s famous by special traditional costumes and fine paintworks. A relatively large yacht harbour has good facilities and is therefore an attractive place for many water sports enthusiasts. Every year various competitions get organized in Hindelopen waters – for sport boats as well as for traditional Dutch flat bottom ships like Skûtsje and Lemsteraak.

Not to be missed:

  • Sylhús (lock watcher’s house)
  • The blue warehouse of KNRM, the Dutch search & rescue community
  • A visit to various art ateliers
  • Visiting the skates museum “het Eerst Friese Schaatsmuseum”
  • Kiting/surfing along the coast (for the fans)
