Eleven Towns Tour: the finest and most booked cycling package in the Netherlands!

Don’t rush, just enjoy!
Speed is an important factor to lot of Eleven Towns Tour packages: stress and go clear minded. There is no time or just limited time to do some sightseeing en route, not even to rest on the sea dike. The ones that rather enjoy the excellent Frisian cuisine, the famous and less famous cultural treasures and the variety in landscape calmly can now be assured, as Friesland Holland created this Eleven City bicycling package with luggage transportation service for people who want to enjoy Friesland without hurrying.

Unique in different ways
During the cycling tour of approximately 250 km, you will get enough time to enjoy the most beautiful spots of Friesland and you have plenty of time to visit cultural historic hotspots that you simply cannot overlook. Also not totally unimportant is the fact that you will be accommodated in lovely hotels, guesthouses or with families that offer a couple bed and breakfast rooms.

Daily programm

Day 1

On your first day you will be expected at the starthotel or start guesthouse. This accommodation is located a couple of kilometers away from the IJsselmeer. Here, two places will definitely get your attention: first, the old Zuiderzee fishing harbor of Laaksum and the Rode Klif on which you have a terrific view. Second, the memorial stone which remembers the famous battle nearby Warns in 1345, where the Dutch tried to win back Friesland. The duke Willem IV of Holland fell in the battle for the province. Relaxed and well-informed you will start the first day biking tomorrow morning.

Day 2

Today you will bike from Gaasterland via the IJsselmeer coastal villages Stavoren, Hindeloopen and Workum to Bolsward or Makkum. The town Bolsward, with its gorgeous city hall, is known for the Sonnema Berenburg (liquor) and Us Heit bier (beer). A visit to the distillery and the brewery cannot be missed within this package as well as a nice walk through the historical city centre.

Day 3

The map will lead you from Bolsward or Makkum through the cozy Waddensea harborcity Harlingen, to the old academic city Franeker. Tonight you will sleep at the Stadsherberg or at the authentic farmhouse Oppe Klincke. We recommend you to take a walk through the monumental centre, visit the Planetarium from Eise Eisinga and go to the oldest studentpub of Holland: de Bogt fen Guné.

Day 4

You will continue your journey along the Waddensea shore towards Dokkum which used to be a harbor and nowadays is the “capital” of the Lauwersland. Don’t forget to climb the highest hillock in Hegebeintum (almost 9 meters) and to let you be escorted through the 12 century old church with a beautiful story behind it. Overnight stay in Dokkum or its surrounding.

Day 5

Today you will pass the Dokkum Ee, Bartlehiem, the finish line of the original Eleven Towns tour (on skates), the Bonkevaart in order to get in Leeuwarden where you will be accommodated. Another option is to carry on and bike towards hotel Weidumerhout near the Zwette (depends on availability of the hotels). Try to visit the cozy centre of the Frisian capital, with plenty of monuments and museums to look for and don’t forget to go shopping in the Nieuwesteeg.

Day 6

This day you will go in southern direction, through the widespread grasslands and hillock landscapes to the Watergate city Sneek. Here you will be accommodated in Sneek, Joure or in the former stud-farm hotel De Oorsprong in St Nicolaasga.

Day 7

From Sneek, Joure or St. Nicolaasga, you will cycle to the fortress city Sloten, the smallest city of the Eleven Towns and also the smallest city of the Netherlands. Your accommodation is located in the wooded area of Gaasterland.
