Hotel here, pension there...

As requested by bikers who want to do the Eleven city route in a maximum of 7 days and who would like to stay in small authentic lodges, the bureau for tourism Friesland Holland developed this new 7 days Eleven city bicycle package ‘’Hotel & Pension’’. The bicycle vacation starts in an intimidate hotel in the forest of Gaasterland or Koudum. This will also be the place where the bicycle tour (250 kilometres) ends. The six accommodations vary between family hotels or pensions, and are near or situated next to the Eleven city route in the surrounding of Gaasterland, Bolsward/Makkum, Harlingen, Franeker, Dokkum, Leeuwarden/Weidum, Sneek/Joure/Sint Nicolaasga.

These accommodations are located beautifully and can be situated in the lively city centre of the village/city or at the spacious countryside. Beside the location and size, also the equipment level, the kitchen and the atmosphere of the lodges vary. This makes the tour extra exciting and fascinating. All accommodations are neat and have been checked by Friesland Holland. Every single one of them offers hospitality, a generous three course meal and a good bed. Friesland Holland is transporting your suitcase(s) so you are able to enjoy the ‘’Magnificent Friesland’’.
