This beautiful route introduces you to another side of Friesland: the Gaasterland, a sloping and wooded area. You will also enjoy the characteristic wide Frisian lake area.

Fortified city of Sloten
A little further on you can enjoy the historic atmosphere in the old core of Balk. The poet Herman Gorter also had a good time here: his poem Mei is an ode to Balk. You will also pass through Sloten, which exudes a wonderful historic atmosphere with its 50 national monuments. Almost everything of the original ramparts and structure is still there, wow!

Frisian Forests
In the cozy restaurant De Baai van Lemmer you can make a stopover at the IJsselmeer. From the terrace you have a view of passing boats. In Nijemirdum you can see a solitary church tower from the fourteenth century. Further on you enter the rolling Gaasterland. You drive through Elfbergen, the Lycklama forest and the Starnuman forests: three beautiful contiguous forests. How wonderfully quiet it is here!
