Leeuwarden: truly an international student town!
Friesland's capital, Leeuwarden, offers its own delights. The town centre is lively, having European department stores, theatres, movie theatres, friendly pubs, museums, sports clubs and nightclubs. Some of the most extensive recreational areas are only a bicycle ride away, offering opportunities for water and land sports, or a great place to relax. Activities including canoeing and rowing on the canals or sailing and swimming in the many lakes and community pools, are popular.
Frequent local and regional bus services connect towns and villages in the surrounding areas. Trains link Leeuwarden to Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, The Hague, Rotterdam, the rest of Holland and all of Europe.
There is no town like Leeuwarden. With over 30,000 Dutch and international students at three universities, Leeuwarden is truly an international student town!
