Tip! In addition to the lively city of Leeuwarden, the province of Friesland also boasts a stunning coastal region with fantastic views of the Wadden Sea. Discover the unique ‘terp’ (artificial hillock) villages with their churches, historic houses, and authentic farms. You will even be able to visit the highest artificial hillock in the Netherlands, since the Hogebeintum terp is 8.8 meters above NAP (Amsterdam Ordnance Datum). It is well worth visiting even on a fresh November day, since the top of the hillock offers up an amazing view of the area. For more information, go to this page.
