"Winsum in Friesland" Winsum by PeteNL

Winsum Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

Small and quiet ?nest? in the Friesian countryside, where I have lived for some months. It really "stirs" up in the summer months, when one of the rare Friesian sports is staged here: Fierljeppen. It?s long-jump with a pole, across a stretch of water.
The "national" championships are always staged here in August

    Ah, the delights of dyke-jumping! Can there be a more winsome way of wandering over waterways than the one in Winsum?
