Score of 108 reviews: 8.3

De Stadsherberg is situated along the Frisian waterways, close to the centre of Franeker. This historic hotel offers guests a pleasant accommodation, and is known for the hospitality and courtesy of its staff. Franeker is a beautiful old Frisian town in the northwest corner of this province, where past and present meet: a great place for guests to spend an enjoyable day. It is one of the cities, through which the famous Elfstedentocht passes. Between 1774 and 1781, local resident Eise Eisinga established what is now one of the oldest planetariums in the Netherlands. This place is certainly still worth a visit today, giving you a detailed image of our universe.

The many sailing routes and cycling paths in the hotel's vicinity ensure that active guests can enjoy themselves outdoors. Several motorboats are moored on De Stadsherberg's jetty, and can be used to sail the Frisian waterways. Reserving is recommended, should you wish to ensure that a boat is available. Bikes can be parked in the garage. There are cycling routes available as well as an official charging point for e-bikes and sloops.

De Stadsherberg has 10 lovely rooms equipped with modern facilities, such as a television, telephone, shower and toilet. Only 25 metres from the inn is The Management Academy of Franeker, where weddings can be held. All wedding guests can then carry on and continue their celebrations at de Stadsherberg.

Hotel - restaurant De Stadsherberg
  • + Gezellige kamer met prima bedden. Heerlijk geslapen en een voortreffelijk ontbijt. Personeel is vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Tot slot we hebben voortreffelijk gegeten en dat alles is voor herhaling vatbaar.
