See you in 2018! Leeuwarden European Capital of Culture

25 September 2017

With Leeuwarden-Friesland as the 2018 European Capital of Culture, there’s never been a better time for a great vacation in Friesland. The addition of festivals, exhibitions, performances and events will provide a fantastic boost for the Frisian landscape, both in the cities and the countryside and along the Wadden coast and the islands.


Imagine the unknown, be surprised by the mysterious and
experience for yourself what the biggest event in Friesland’s rich history means. 2018 will be special – with music, theatre, concerts, a major spectacle, landscape art, opera, sports and experience.

The Frisians, Dutch and Europeans will roll up their sleeves and work on issues that are important for future generations.

We’ll announce our full programme on 3 October 2017, but we’re giving you a little glimpse now just to pique your curiosity. The European Capital of Culture year begins with a brilliant opening in the province on 26, 27 and 28 January 2018. In addition to Leeuwarden natives, Mata Hari and M.C. Escher, the Frisian horses, the Elfstedentocht, the Tallships, the Wadden area and the Royal de Luxe giants will also have parts in these celebrations. Friesland is the setting and everyone is welcome!
