When you think of Heerenveen, you think of sports! Why? Because when you hear names like Sven Kramer, Epke Zonderland, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Abe Lenstra or Foppe de Haan, you know exactly who we mean. But sports only scratches the surface of the experience of Heerenveen. Here you can experience the beauty in your own way, whether that is taking a scenic bike ride, a nice long walk, enjoying a boat ride, taking a relaxing visit to one of our theatres or museums or maybe you just want to sit down and enjoy a meal while visiting one of our beautiful terraces. You will surely be stunned by this place that we call ‘n Gouden Plak’ (Dutch for ‘Golden Medal’ and Frisian for ‘Golden Place’)!
