The Netherlands - Friesland (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Friesland (Fryslân) chapter from Lonely Planet’s Netherlands guidebook.

At first, Friesland seems typically Dutch: it’s flat, it’s green and there are plenty of cows (the namesake black-and-white variety). But explore a bit and you’ll find its differences. For one, the province has its own language, as you’ll see on road signs.

  • explore the excellent museums and shady backstreets of Leeuwarden
  • maps
  • find your own little piece of solitude on the isle of Schiermonnikoog
  • transport
  • kick back in Hindeloopen, a timeless coastal town
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Leeuwarden (Ljouwert), Waddenzee Coast, Harlingen (Harns), Southwestern Friesland, Sneek (Snits), Hindeloopen (Hylpen), Frisian Islands, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermonnikoog.
