A - Tour to Bolsward - 51 kmAlong the Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer you cycle to Makkum. In the Middle Ages, Makkum was named Poort naar de Zuiderzee. This favorable location led to a lot of wealth, the monumental merchant houses in the picturesque center bear witness to this.
Then you cycle further to the old Hanseatic town of Bolsward. This city, once situated on three mounds on the former Middelzee, has a beautiful center with canals and dozens of monuments. The Martini church from the 15th century is one of the largest and most beautiful Gothic churches in the Netherlands.
The church has a saddleback tower characteristic of Friesland. You drive through the wide polder via Witmarsum and Kimswerd back to Harlingen.
B - Tour to Franeker - 40 kmYou cycle to Franeker via the tranquil terp village of Wijnaldum. In this former university town you will find monumental buildings, canals and the city museum ‘t Coopmanshus. Opposite the town hall is the famous planetarium of Eise Eisinga, a scale model of the solar system. The planetarium was completed in 1791 and even today still shows the course of the stars and planets. Along quiet cycle paths along old waterways and canals you cycle through the villages of Tzum and Achlum to Harlingen. C - Tour on Terschelling - 42 kmThe crossing to the port of West-Terschelling takes approximately 2 hours. You cycle along the mudflats, through the bird-rich pasture area behind the dike, past the Boschplaat nature reserve and through the forests and dunes.
