We have been doing so since 2013 in a very approachable way with public walking tours. Every Saturday at 12 PM we also offer a Leeuwarden Free Tour in English. But we also offer tailor-made private tours. Because we believe that a personalised walking tour with one of our guides is the best way to discover Leeuwarden.

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.
