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.


De Stadsherberg Franeker is beautifully situated on the water, and close to the centre of Franeker. The inn is a short distance from the town of Harlingen, where ferries can take you to one of the West Frisian Islands, such as Terschelling or Ameland. Cities such as Leeuwarden and Heerenveen are also easy to get to.

Food and Drink

Breakfast at de Stadsherberg is served between 08:00 and 10:00. Guests can also have breakfast earlier or later on request. The inn has an excellent restaurant with a very diverse menu. The kitchen joined the Euro-Toques organisation some years ago. This is an organisation for professional chefs wishing to promote the use of honest, natural food. As such, de Stadsherberg shows that it greatly values healthy, honest and tasty food. The hotel's café is a very nice place to enjoy a drink. The patio belonging to the sun room is also very busy in the summer.

    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.

    Het toilet in de badkamer is te hoog voor kleine gasten.

    “My tip: Zeker aan te raden is een bezoek aan het museum Martena en het Eis Eisinga Planetarium.”

    Excellent Restaurant, superb staff and ideal location

    Rooms somewhat more basic than expected. Slightly dubious WIFI, don't count on a good signal.

    Lovely location. Try it!

    Staff very pleasant and helpful. Manager also nice to deal with.

    Very steep and narrow steps to room 10. No safe or telephone in room. Toilet and hand basin fitted very high from floor level.
