Take a break - lunch!

Time to re-charge. There's enough in this city to eat a different excellent lunch each day, but the choice is still easy. Leeuwarden is stocked full of the hippest and most delivious lunch-spots. Whether you're set on a brown-roll with cheese, or a three-course lunch, you're well situated here.

Agenda - fun!

Would you like to experience the theatre, visit a temporary exhibition, or are you just searching for a little adventure? Check the agenda! There is always something to do.

Finish everything off with dinner.

A day full of activity should, naturally, be rounded off with a good dinner. In Leeuwarden, there are plenty of places you can do just that. Have you ever thought of dining in an old prison? Or maybe you'd prefer one of these others?
