'Truly an International student-town!'
Leeuwarden, the historic capital of Friesland, has 95,000 inhabitants – of which no fewer than 20,000 are students! Perhaps inevitably, the character of the city is charming, lively and yet laid-back.
The centre is packed with theatres, movie houses, cafes, restaurants and nightclubs, as well as major department stores and sports clubs. Fast train services link Leeuwarden with Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Schiphol Airport and the rest of Europe.
