Explore Leeuwarden

inside and out

As the weather darkens and the nights draw in, there's still loads to discover in Leeuwarden! Autumn brings falling leaves covering the streets, leaving us looking for warmth and gezelligheid; like an evening spent long at the table on a cozy terrace, a hearty borrel, or a plate of filling and delicious dinner. And on rainy days? Lose yourself in diverting museums, or duck into incredible boutiques- all within a quick walk (with an umbrella!) In Leeuwarden we're making sure to keep up social distancing, too, so that everyone can keep enjoying our wonderful city. If you'd like to warm up this Autumn, Leeuwarden is the place to be.

Autumn - fun!

Shopping - yay!

PLEASE NOTE! In the interest of public health, the Dutch government is taking a series of extra measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus. Museums, restaurants, bars, and cafés must now follow new regulations too. Most stores have the same opening hours, but if you want to make sure you don't end up in front of a closed door, please contact the store in advance. You will experience Leeuwarden online for a while, but we hope to welcome you back in our city soon.
