"Heerenveen - speed-skating capital of NL?" Heerenveen by PeteNL

Heerenveen Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 62 photos

The town itself has some nice quarters, there is a whole new industrial and housing development, and it's close to a nice forest as well as the famous Frisian lakes.
It hosts a football club ... but most famous is it's speed skating rink!

The World Champion of 2002, Jochem Uijttehaage

This way the champions are welcomed: by skaters in traditional customs (and a horse-driven sleigh!)

    Ben vorig weekend naar het Allround EK geweest, en het was schitterend! Zelfs voor een Belgische schaatsleek als ik was het een heel interessante bedoening :-)
