Historical City Walks
A guided historical city walk is the ideal way to discover the city! The Historical Centre Leeuwarden (HCL) has an enthusiastic and knowledgeable group of guides that can tell you about the fascinating history of the town. For groups, we offer customized city walks and tours that are centred around a specific theme. English-speaking guides are available, as well as some that speak other languages. The tours are suitable for children and participants with walking difficulty. The costs for guided tours are € 50.00. The walks take about 90 minutes.
There are guided walks every weekend, which require no reservation. On Saturdays (from April to October) the Oldehove tour, and all year on Sundays the Highlights tour. Both walks begin with a short introduction in the exhibition Het verhaal van Leeuwarden (The story of Leeuwarden). Start: 13.15h in front of the HCL (Groeneweg 1). After the walk you can climb the Oldehove. Duration: 1.5 to 2 hours Participants: max. 25 Price: € 3.50 p.p. There are no weekend walks on holidays or during festivals on the Oldehoofsterkerkhof.
The HCL organizes guided tours. You can book a tour with your own group in different languages. There are a lot of routes and themed walks to choose from. Some of the open tours are in English or bilingual (if necessary). Check the website for possibilities: www.historischcentrumleeuwarden.nl.
