Welkom bij Jachthaven Friese Hoek

Recreation around Jachthaven Friese Hoek

There is much to be enjoyed in Lemmer and the surrounding areas, such as the Ir. D.F. Woudagemaal. The largest steam-pumping station ever built, which opened in 1920 and is still occasionally in operation today, has been on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list since 1998. Just as impressive as the steam power technology is the stunning architecture based on the Amsterdamse School style. In 2011, the new visitor centre, De Dageraad, opened its doors to the public to allow visitors to get more closely acquainted with all of the fascinating aspects of the Woudagemaal. The pumping station itself can only be toured with a guide.

However, The Orchideeën Hoeve (The Orchid Farm) in Luttelgeest is definitely worth visiting! In this wonderful world of orchids, butterflies and perfect landscaping, once you enter, your trip through the tropics begins. The Amazonian Rainforest, the Suspended Flower Garden, the Jungle Theatre, Butterfly garden and the new Lemur Kingdom are trendsetters in Europe! In short, a fun and surprising day out for all the family.

The Duikmuseum (Diving museum) in Lemmer exhibits a large collection of diving gear and suits from various times throughout our history. The collection is well organised due to the use of mannequins displaying all kinds of diving gear, and right next door is an aquatic store for whatever you may need. Entrance to the museum is free.

From Lemsterland, there are endless possibilities with regards to cycling; take a leisurely ride to the Kuinderbos, the Weerribben, do a ring of the Frisian Lakes, Gaasterland, or the LF-routes
The STIP-office in Lemmer sells cycling maps for all of the Netherlands. A popular choice are the handy maps from the so-called ‘Frisian Cycling Network’. At STIP you can find all 5 regional maps of Friesland. They also stock detailed cycling maps for the entire Netherlands, as well as guide books with day-routes already marked out.
