The Elfstedentocht (Eleven Cities Tour) is the biggest ice-skating tour in the world. Over fifteen thousand ice skaters defy the ice encouraged by hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic fans. The waterways between eleven Frisian cities form the 200 kilometer track of the Eleven Cities Tour. That’s why this sensational ice-skating event can only take place during severe winters. In the spring the Eleven Frisian City fountains will be revealed. They are designed by eleven international top artists. What is special is that during the design process, every artist was inspired by the residents and historical background of each city. Visiting all eleven cities, is truly experiencing Friesland. These charming historic towns are connected by water and the 200 km route can be explored by walking, cycling, sailing or by car. The traces of the rich trading history and former seafaring are evident in the eleven Frisian cities.
Make a nice combination together with the international literature festival The Sea! The Sea! will have one of the most beautiful stages possible: why? Because the multi-day festivities will set its sails and ride the waves with the Tall Ship Races. Harlingen is one of the oldest seaports in The Netherlands and is the gateway to northern Holland from the North Sea. t is the homeport for sea-going trawlers and a large traditional sail charter fleet. Harlingen is a yachting centre and has two ancient tidal docks, the Noorderhaven and Zuidehaven which surround the historic city centre and give Harlingen its unique character. Smaller Tall Ships can berth in the Noorderhaven, lined with historic warehouses and the stately houses of ship owners.
