Leeuwarden or as the locals call it; Liwwadden. It's the capital city of the Dutch province of Friesland. It is situated in the northern part of the country. Here is a short impression of this small city with a population of circa 97000.

It's kind of funny to see a sign directing to the station right in front of the station :D

Great houses. You can easily see that the Netherlands have been a trading nation for a long time.

I don't know exactly but i think so. It is a subtile advertisement for a beer brand on a popular café/dining in town. Thanks for the welcome message.

A few pics that i forgot to post in my last update:

  • (One of the 5 Courts of Appeal in NL)



A new update with more pictures may take some time, I'm waiting for nice clear days with some bright sunlight.
