The Elfstedentocht over the ice is an increasing rarity. That is why there is also a new Elfstedentocht. Not connected by ice, but by fountains in every city: Hindeloopen, Workum, Bolsward, Harlingen, Franeker, Dokkum, Leeuwarden, IJlst, Sneek, Sloten and Stavoren. A wonderful bike ride through the beautiful landscape of Friesland.

Eleven fountains
The fountains in the eleven cities were created by international artists from eleven different countries. The local population is closely involved in the design of the fountain in question. Each fountain tells the history of the associated city. In Harlingen, for example, whaling played a major role in maritime history. The whale was a symbol of trade, but it also symbolized the powers of the sea. That is why the fountain in Harlingen is a whale. From Harlingen you cycle on to Franeker and Dokkum.

Straight through Leeuwarden
One of the eleven cities is of course also Leeuwarden. In Leeuwarden is the seven meter high fountain'Love in Leeuwarden\\\'. The fountain consists of two white heads of a boy and a girl resting on an oval-shaped, black plateau. The artist Jaume Plensa got his inspiration for the mist fountain when he saw the mist over the Frisian fields early in the morning. Then you cycle on to IJlst, Sneek, Sloten and Stavoren.
