Go on a journey of discovery at the AquaZooOn a voyage of discovery
AquaZoo Friesland is located along the waterways in the Dutch province of Friesland and it offers you a truly smashing & splashing day out with its comprehensive variety of animals in the North of the Netherlands. Meet seals face to face, enjoy the fur seal show and walk the beach with the penguins; an experience you will not forget easily!
OnderWaterSafariHead on safari!
The OnderWaterSafari is a brand new attraction that lets you duck under the waves without even getting your feet wet! The Netherlands has a unique relationship with water, and is full of coots, frogs, and mosquitos. We know what’s on top of the water, but what about under the surface? And how do things live in protected areas like the Wadden Sea? In a special carriage you’ll be taken on a journey through the fresh water habitats inside the Netherlands, to a special saltwater world in the Wadden Sea.
Have you ever stood eye-to-eye with a venomous animal? You can now at the Natuurmuseum Fryslân! Their newest exhibition, GIF, will show you into the world of poisonous and venomous species from across the world. And, if seeing the animals through glass catches your attention, try out some of the interactive activities on offer. From the puff-adder to the bird-spider, to the giant millipede, each is more venomous than the last! Do you dare?
Miniature People LeeuwardenMiniature People Leeuwarden
Look for the tiniest residents in the city! What started out as an artistic expression has turned into one of the best routes for walking, with (or without) kids! In some of the most special places throughout the city centre, you will encounter these miniature scenes less than 2 cm in height. Wander through the streets and small alleys and look for these miniature Liwadders (people of Leeuwarden).
