The Amsterdam Lake District
Where is the Amsterdam Lake District?
Within an hour drive of the city center of Amsterdam you will find the Amsterdam Lake District. A water rich area in the north of the country, in the province of Friesland. It’s a beautiful rural area full of ditches, canals, ponds, lakes, rivers, mounds, meadows and drained land. And there is more; small villages, dikes, windmills, pumping stations, museums, boats, locks, mounds, historic cities, drawbridges, farms and so on. We call them the “hidden treasures” of the area. Because they are authentic, it is peaceful and there is no mass tourism.
You will also find typical Dutch traditions, cultural heritage, traditional costumes and the most wonderful people, all with their own stories.
When you want to discover the Netherlands beyond Amsterdam and learn more about the Netherlands, we would love to welcome you in the Amsterdam Lake District. We offer several tours but you are always welcome to contact us for more information or a custom made tour for you and your guests.
