Things to do in Franekeradeel, Netherlands
During your stay at a Franekeradeel holiday rental you could take the time to visit Franeker, the capital city of the region, which has several unique features. As a university town, the city is most famous for the Eisinga Planetarium which was created in Eisinga’s living room, about 1800. The Museum Martena is a newer creation although it is housed in an old manor house and is devoted to the history of the city and the region. The Arkens windmill is also worth a visit; a hollow post mill with, unusually Butterfly sails. Meanwhile, if you want to be more active then there is plenty of hiking and cycling routes available; you may even want to try guided mud flat hiking around the West Friesan Islands, which form a UNESCO World Heritage Site, although if you do make sure you have an official guide to keep you out of danger. If you happen to be a golf enthusiast then you’ll find six excellent courses within easy reach of your accommodation in Franekeradeel. There are two dozen lakes in the area for boating in the summer. It is also worth following the route of the Elfstedentocht particularly on bicycle; seven cities of the tour are in the area: Bolsward, Workum, Sneek, Ijlst, Hindeloopen, Stavoren and Sloten.
