<font color=blue>Leeuwarden has its own leaning tower of Pisa, ?De Oldehove?.
This gotic tower form 1532 was never finished. The soft clay-layer in the foundation was the reason that shortly after the beginning the building started to sag.

But the 40mtrs heigh ?Oldehove? is stil a sensation to climb and you will have a spectaculair view of the surrounding. If the weather conditions are good you even can see the ?Waddeneilanden?.
