The village of Langweer
Langweer, Langwar in Frisian, is a picturesque village with a lovely ambiance situated on one of the prettiest lakes in Friesland. Because of its central location, Langweer is an ideal starting point for beautiful sailing trips. A sailing route can be selected to suit any wind direction. Sneek, Heeg, Lemmer, Sloten and other well-known water sports town are easily accessible by boat.
In the village’s small, but cosy, centre, many of the old and beautiful buildings have been preserved. The centuries old linden trees along the main street make the whole experience seem like walking through a painting. A stroll through the village is certainly worth your while.
Langweer has more to offer than water sports alone. The area also offers stunning cycling and hiking routes. These activities provide a relaxed way to become familiar with the Frisian culture, such as ‘Fierljeppen’ at the Fierljepschans in Joure or the ‘Skûtsjesilen’ on the Frisian lakes.
A cloudy day? You can also take a scenic drive past the Frisian ‘elfsteden’, the eleven towns through which the nearly 200 km. long skating marathon passes. Other options include visiting one of the many museums and other interesting sights Friesland has to offer. Some examples of which are the Frisian Nautical Museum and the Oudheidskamer in Sneek.
