Check out the city from the comfort of your own chair

Leeuwarden has a city center with canals and mounds (man-made hills) dating from the middle ages.  Old store fronts and beautifully restored monuments adorn the city.  
Examples of these include the Oldehove a large slanted tower and the Waag an old weighing station in the middle of town.   
A walking tour through the city center is more than a trip around old buildings.  This city has remarkable canals and small streets, cozy shops and interesting museums. Great for a first visit and also for those who've lived in Leeuwarden for years...check out the city from the comfort of your own chair.
