Leeuwarden, the capital city with a hundred names
Liwwadden, Leewadden, Ljouwert, Luwt, Lintwarde: Leeuwarden is also called the capital city with a hundred names. The city centre is the best kept secret in the Netherlands. With its canals, town houses, monuments and museums, one of Leeuwarden’s many names is Little Amsterdam. If you have always wanted to go to Pisa in Italy, there’s no need. In Leeuwarden we have a tower that’s even more lopsided than the Tower of Pisa! Leeuwarden was justifiably crowned European Capital of Culture in 2018. Here, you can also enjoy wonderful meals out in one of the charming eateries and go shopping in the many boutiques. If you go to Friesland, a visit to Leeuwarden is not to be missed.
