Motorcycling in Friesland

Friesland, or Flyslân as it is officially known, is a province with a character all its own. You can drive endlessly in Friesland. One moment you are on the shore of the Wadden Sea, the next you are driving through beautiful small roads, through historic towns and along beautiful lakes to the woods in the south of the province.

Certain things to do in Friesland on a motorcycle

Of course Friesland is famous for its lake district, the Elfsteden and its own language. But you'll be surprised at the variety of scenery you'll encounter in this watery province. We give you our top three things to do on the motorcycle.

Over the Afsluitdijk on the motorcycle

The provinces of North Holland and Friesland are connected by the Afsluitdijk. Actually, this dyke is not a dyke but a dam, because the IJsselmeer has never been drained. It is quite an experience to drive over the 90 meters wide and 32 kilometers long road that separates the former Zuiderzee and the Waddenzee.

To the planetarium on a motorcycle

In 1781, Eise Eisinga built the oldest working planetarium in the world. He did this in seven years in his parental home in Franeker. Today, Eise Eisinga's house is a museum and a national monument. You can visit the museum with the planetarium's impressive wheelwork.

Harlingen by motorcycle

In Harlingen, the boats of Rederij Doeksen leave for Vlieland and Terschelling. But Harlingen is also the main seaport of Friesland. From the port you have beautiful views of the special Wadden Sea, but you can also take a nice stroll along stores and terraces.

Events for motorcyclists in Friesland
