"ELFSTEDENTOCHTThe most..." Leeuwarden Local Custom Tip by Xowe

Leeuwarden Local Customs: 13 reviews and 13 photos


<U><B><font color=red size=+1>ELFSTEDENTOCHT</font></B></U>

<font color=blue>The most important event in Friesland will be the “Elfstedentocht”. Unfortunately the weather isnt always coorperating for this fever.

Because this event wont take place most of the time, the province organizes yearly a alternitive Elfstedentocht: in May for walkers en in June for cyclists, motorists and motorcyclists.

But you can also take this famous route on your own. All the Local Tourist Information Centers can provide you a route.
