Tour guide for Sneek

by dmelnyk Online Now Nov 16, 2007 at 4:34 PM

Hi folks:

I am planning a trip with some friends to cruise the Canals of Friesland and wanted to know if anyone has had experience with any tour guides for Sneek? Are there any good markets (i.e. market days?) Which are the best restaurants / bars etc. in Sneek. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards, Dave Melnyk, Toronto, Canada

    First of all: when are you travelling? You'll find loads of info on the official tourist office website: http://www.vvvsneek.nl/ (there is an English link).
    The famous Sneek Week is 2-7 August 2008.
    For 2007, have a look at:
    holland.com/global/index.htm...

    Sneek has a small street market on Tuesdays (9-13 hrs) and Saturdays (9-17 hrs).

    Restaurants in order of quality:

    You'll have a great time in Friesland. Enjoy!

    Maybe you'll already aware that Friesland is bilingual. Sneek is known as Snits. It might be fun to learn a bit of Frisian (Fries), which is in fact a bit related to English.
    Sneek is not a big town, you'll easily find your way around. It's very popular as a tourist town.

    The Sneek Maritime museum offers a number of guided tours, to be booked by the local tourist office (see ATLC's reply).

    The page is in Dutch only, but will give you an impression:
