City Train Leeuwarden makes a beautiful ride through the historic center of Leeuwarden. You will see the famous leaning tower, the Oldehove. You will also pass the beautiful canals, flanked by many national monuments. Like ‘de Waag’ building, for example. And of course we drive over a mound. We also take you along the birth house of Mata Hari, the beautiful Chancellery and the former prison ‘de Blokhuispoort’ and much more.

The tour takes about 45 minutes. The text can be listened to in Dutch, French, German, English and Frisian.

The train runs from April until the end of October.
