A magnificent tour across Sùdwest-Fryslân
Overview tour: from the green starting point no. 1 up and untill the red finish point no. 25, the total distance is 114 km.
Starting tour: departure at A6, take road N354 at exit no. 18 (on the road between Lemmer and Joure) and drive towards Woudsend.
At roundabout take road direction Woudsend, drive over the drawbridge, park your car over the bridge and walk back to Café Restaurant De Waterkant at the right directly over the bridge.
At the street terrace directly across the bridge in
Woudsend you have a first class seat for the show of passing yachts, sailing boats and all kinds of pleasure boats and vessels.
From the street café in Woudsend back to the N354 towards
Heeg for a stroll through the village.
The Eel fishermen from Heeg were real
entrepreneurs in the past: they possessed an exclusive landing stage at the
quay of the Thames, near the Tower Bridge in London. Meanwhile their business mentality did not change: on nice sunny days there is just as much
activity here as in Central Amsterdam on a Saturday afternoon. After the 'stretching of one's legs' back in the car towards Blauwhuis.
From Blauwhuis via highway E22 through the city of Bolsward towards Makkum. A
stroll through the small city and along the harbour is a must here!
On our way to the next city, you definitely have to visit the very small village of Piaam and drink a nice cup of coffee (or tea) in the beautiful restaurant
De Nynke Pleats
From the village of Piaam to the city of Workum with (again) several inviting street cafés in its town center.
Workum is one of the most beautiful cities of southwest Fryslân, even if only for its beautiful facades, monumental buildings and water-rich surroundings.
The impressive Saint Gertrude Church, the Waag
( Weigh House) and the City Hall are definitely worth a visit. And at a short distance the well known
Jopie Huisman Museum,
here. Workum is popular among water sports enthusiasts because of its great location.
