Description

Wonderful Frisian history lessons have been preserved in picturesque villages with their own character. Take Franeker, for example, star of the eleven cities, which was founded in the year 800. Explore this beautiful village with a protected cityscape by bike. Part of the authentic Frisian village has old houses that are still in their original condition and whose appearance has not been polluted by new construction.

Dozens of national monuments give Franeker a unique atmosphere. Take, for example, the cute Korendragershuisje, which was built in 1634 for corn bearers and sack bearers and has slumped a bit crookedly. Or Franeker's town hall, built in 1591, which towers over the square in its full glory in the Frisian Renaissance style and is in the Top 100 of Dutch UNESCO monuments. A sharp contrast forms the Botniahuis in which new apartments for the elderly have been built.

Then you pass the beautiful Camminga House. The east facade is a remnant of a stins and dating from 1400 this is the oldest part of the building. Five embrasures were found in the facade through which the enemy could be spied on and fired upon. In the sixteenth century, the stately building, which was also called Sjaerdemahuis, was renovated. Also from 1969 to 1972, a major renovation took place, during which the west facade (originally dating from the early fifteenth century) was renewed. The windows were restored to their former glory and regained their original shape.
