feels like home
If you like peace, space, nature and pure air, then you are in the right place in the head of Friesland.
At a cycling distance from the Wadden Sea, a fantastic place to completely empty your head. After spending a day in nature, coming home to Oars as Oars, with a glass of wine by the wood-burning stove and returning home as reborn.
The bed & breakfast is located on the edge of a rural village of Hantum. Six kilometers from the northernmost town of Dokkum and three kilometers from the Wadden Sea.
From Hantum a visit to the cozy old fortified city of Dokkum is definitely recommended. A town with a lot of history where the brass bells in the town hall are still sounding at exactly 9:50 pm. In the past this was necessary for the people who were working outside the gate. At 22.00 hours the gates closed and the lock bridge was retrieved. And so they could come home just in time.
Dokkum has a historic city center with many trendy shops and boutiques. The center of Dokkum has more than twenty restaurants and other eateries. An extensive lunch, a nice sandwich to go or sit down on one of the terraces at the water for an evening of dining: in Dokkum you can do this!
As one of the 11 cities of Friesland, Dokkum is of course known for its beautiful canals. In the winter, the canals are the most beautiful skating place in the country and in the summer months they are full of pleasure yachts. With a canoe or rowing boat you sail all the way around the strongholds, and straight through the city.Despite the fact that the fortified town only has around 13,000 inhabitants, the city does have a real city feeling. The shape of the ramparts is still clearly visible around the city center.
The city is known internationally because Saint Boniface died in the vicinity of Dokkum. An exhibition of Boniface can therefore be admired at the Dokkum museum.
Dokkum, the most northern town in the Netherlands on the edge of the Wadden Sea World Heritage.
The Wadden area. With rightly chosen the most beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands. Walking along the salt marshes, enjoying the tranquility, the beautiful landscape, the diversity of birds and especially the pure air.
It is precisely in this hectic time of busy schedules and commitments that the Frisian coast is the place to get a breath of fresh air and let your sores go by the wind and come back home as reborn.
