Friesland Holland Tour Tip: 'Rembrandt op Vrijersvoeten' (Rembrandt plays the Suitor)

The touristic route ‘Rembrandt plays the Suitor’ was launched in the north of Friesland on Tuesday 23 May 2007. As partaker of this attractive package you’ll drive on the second day of your stay in Friesland from your hotel in Franeker via St. Annaparochie and Bartlehiem to your hotel in Leeuwarden, the capital of Friesland. On the third day you will drive via the southern route back to the starting point in Franeker. Franeker, St. Annaparochie and Leeuwarden played a major role in the 17th century life of Rembrandt’s family, the Van Rijns. Even back then the ‘Eleven Cities’ tour on ice skates already existed. To make this cycle tour even more appealing, we also lead you along a section of the famous ice skating route in northern Friesland, including a visit to the world famous ‘Eleven Cities’ bridge of Bartlehiem. Franeker and Leeuwarden are particularly interesting towns on the ‘Eleven Cities’ route, but you will also be able to enjoy romantic knoll villages along the way. To put it in a nutshell, you will discover the hidden treasures of Fryslân.

Saskia Uylenburgh lived in the village of St. Annaparochie in the municipality Het Bildt at the Wadden Sea, near Leeuwarden. Rembrandt visited Het Bildt a number of times before he married Saskia in St. Annaparochie. During one of their walks Rembrandt drafted the attractive Bildt landscape with silverpoint on parchment.

The marriage formalities took place in the Van Harens Church in St. Annaparochie on 22 June 1634. Rembrandt’s Tour d’Amour in Friesland is wrapped up with a visit to the historic university town of Franeker which played an important role in the life of Saskia Uylenburgh.
