It doesn’t come as a surprise that Leeuwarden has been named the European Capital of Culture in 2018. When visiting Leeuwarden, make sure to visit ‘De Harmonie’ or ‘De Oldehove’, the leaning tower in the center of Leeuwarden, with a fascinating history. You will also find numerous shops, galleries, and restaurants in the city’s main shopping street. At approximately 10 minutes by car or by bus (bus stop 300 meters from the campsite) you are already in the city of Leeuwarden.
