The Blokhuispoort is the well-preserved old prison of Leeuwarden. Nowadays you will find all kinds of (small) entrepreneurs here who have a studio or shop in the cells of the H-Vleugel. You can also follow various workshops in the Blokhuispoort (by appointment).

One of the shops in the Blokhuispoort is Insanely Fun! The name says it all, you can shop there for amazingly fun and cosy, beautiful gifts. A visit to this store is a real living room experience.

After (work) shopping you can relax in one of the restaurants for a snack or a drink. And have you seen the library? That is really recommended! Stroll around and admire the metamorphosis of an old prison into a modern building where many old elements have been preserved. Do you want to go on an adventure? Then book the tour.

Did you already know that it is possible to spend the night in the H-wing in the Alibi Hostel?

Come and visit us! The Blokhuispoort is open every day. The shops and studios each have their own business hours. Most are open from Tuesday to Saturday.
