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.
