What to do during your stay in Friesland?

The central location of Makkum in Friesland makes it easy to explore the province. The capital Leeuwarden is at a 40-minute driving distance from the hotel and certainly worth a visit, as is the smaller town of Sneek with its cosy city centre, which is at a 24-minute drive away. But the various small villages and towns in the area are also worth a visit, such as Bolsward, Stavoren, Harlingen and Workum.
