It only has to freeze and the whole of the Netherlands will suffer from Eleven Cities fever. Unfortunately, the last edition of the Tour of Tours dates back to 1997. Time to ride it yourself - on your bike. It's pouring!
From the saddle you can enjoy views over the polder, waterways, lakes, the Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer. The Gaasterland is where the skaters don't come: a rolling landscape full of deciduous forests, meadows and hedgerows. Along the way you can enjoy a delicious meal and stay at Hotel Grandcafe Stadsherberg Sneek or at Hotel-Restaurant de Wijnberg.
The tour leads you through all eleven places in Friesland that once obtained city rights. So plan enough time, because there is plenty to experience on this 257 kilometer long trip. In Hindelopen you are welcome at Hotel de Stadsboerderij and Eetcafé de Brabander. At the end of the route you can enjoy a delicious meal and stay at Hotel Restaurant De Posthoorn in Dokkum. Just like the skaters, you start and end the route in Leeuwarden where you can stay at Hotel Café't Anker.
At Sneek you pass the Epema State: a castle from the 17th century. There was already a wooden house with stables and gardens on this site in the 13th century, but this building disappeared around 1450. The beautiful gatehouse dates from 1880. The park garden, although not in exactly the same condition, has been preserved and decorated according to the English landscape style .
