Friesland is Fryslân


The well-known Dutch singer Guus Meeuwis sings in his song “Brabant” (about the Dutch province of Brabant): “If only people were as proud about Brabant as a Frisian”.

 

Yet this pride must not be associated with detachment or willfulness. Frisians are extremely hospitable, open and particularly sober people who like to act as a team to accomplish something. Whether it concerns your business event or a regional event. Frisians are committed to achieving it. Take for instance the eleven cities skating event. Organising an event of this size in a 48 hour time span is unique!

 

You will experience a similar collaboration, the drive for perfection and the sense of hospitality when your meeting or congress happens in Friesland.

 

Friesland possesses many qualities: Beautiful surroundings, monumental, pleasant towns (11 cities!), versatile congress accommodations and excellent hotels. Yet it also has a unique language and culture, as well as the special Frisian landscape. Particularly the local residents are what makes Friesland / Fryslân so unique.

 

This is one of the reasons why Leeuwarden/ Friesland was nominated as Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018.
