This route leads you through Franeker, Harlingen, Makkum: old Frisian towns with a rich history. Between these places it is wonderful to cycle through the vast polders and along the foaming Wadden Sea. After a cup of coffee at Hotel Poort van Franeker you get on your bike. The town has dozens of national monuments. There is also plenty to see in Harlingen. For example, you can visit the Hannema House. Makkum was once located on the Zuiderzee and acquired wealth, especially in the seventeenth century. Some monumental buildings still testify to this. At Witmarsum you drive through the Flietsterbosk, a varied recreational forest where several species of deciduous trees grow. You pass It Fliet, a street with a monument to Menno Simmons, who was born in Witmarsum.
