Follow in the footsteps of the Nassau family

Come to Leeuwarden and discover the 'Royal City' of the north. The Dutch royal family has its origins in the capital of Friesland and from 1584 to 1747, Leeuwarden was the 'Royal Residence' of the Netherlands. Many monuments in the city remind us of that time; the Frisian Nassau family has given a touch of royal allure to Leeuwarden.
