Starting Point

The starting point for our tours is the Oldehoofsterkerkhof, the square in front of the Oldehove (the leaning tower). Our guides will be waiting for you next to the entrance of the Obe pavilion. Inside this pavilion you will find the Visitor Center Leeuwarden and a free exhibition. This is nearby the ‘Ut Streekie’ shop and the Restaurant De Skeve Toren.
