Stichting Praamvaren Leeuwarden (The Foundation for Barge Boating in Leeuwarden)
The volunteer foundation, dedicated to sailing traditional Frisian flat-bottomed boats called Praam(en), is organising tours around the city.
The foundation has access to five electrically driven Pramen with a total capacity of 122 people. Each tour has a skipper and a guide on board.
All barges are certified for optimum safety by the Shipping Inspectorate.
Our skippers are all in possession of the correct sailing license and, the nimble skills needed to wind through the grachten and singels. During the tour, a well-trained guide will speak about the city, including interesting historical facts and details about the city and its most special of buildings.
