Hindeloopen, Bolsward, Stavoren

Despite not being directly on the Zuiderzee, Bolsward owes its prosperity to shipping. Thanks to its good connections, trade flourished there, which allowed Bolsward to join the Hanseatic League in 1412. Anyone walking through the city today can still see the prosperity of those days.

Of course, Stavoren was conveniently located on the Zuiderzee. An excellent breeding ground for the growth of shipping and trade, which is why Stavoren was able to join the Hanseatic League as early as 1385. How it ended with the city, of course, is known to anyone who has read the story of the Lady of Stavoren. Traces of the Hanseatic era can also be found in Stavoren, although not many buildings from this era remain. In fact, Stavoren was flooded quite often, causing great damage. Thus, the Blokhuis from 1522 also disappeared. Now a new replica of the blockhouse has been built in Stavoren.

Hindeloopen is also a beautiful Frisian town located on the former Zuiderzee. In the Middle Ages, this city already had many trade relations with Lubeck and other Hanseatic cities, but despite this, it did not become a Hanseatic city itself. That may be precisely why Hindeloopen is a quirky town, with its own art stream, among other things. Discover the story of this Eleven Cities town at one of the disembarkation points.

Between the villages and towns with their historical sights, also enjoy the Frisian countryside. And don't forget to stop at a terrace along the way and let yourself be pampered by the Frisian hospitality.
