Travel Tips for Sneek

Tiles

by ATLC

Tiles give away a great deal of information about history. I have loved tiles for a long time, ever since I visited the Tile Museum in Otterlo at age 15 or so.

Anyway, here in the Hindelooper Kamer (see Restaurant tips), it was fun to spot original tiles (verrry old), simply old tiles and new tiles.
You see, verrrry old tiles have a hole in opposite corners, made by nails when they were fired in the kiln. Newer tiles (and even those are old) do not have those.

Behind the stove in old kitchens, the wall would often be tiled so that it could be easily cleaned off soot coming off the stoves. The nicer the decoration, the richer the family, that's obvious.
A popular decoration were scenes from the Bible, even with the actual text of where to find the scenes.

Another popular decoration would be depicting children's games, or various professions. See photo 3 in this tip.

There were also tableaux, a series of tiles together depicting a larger image. Like in photo 2 and 4.

Mind you, this tile business is not typical for Sneek or for Friesland. It's a general thing in The Netherlands in old houses and farms. But as these tiles can be found in Sneek, I thought it nice to explain a little about it here.

BBC's World Top 10 Watersports destination

by ATLC

Jul 18, 2004

BBC

The BBC has named Sneek as one of top 10 watersports holiday destinations in the world. Just after Venice and even above Miami.

"My own visit"

Well, I can certainly commit to this BBC statement. Sneek is surrounded by water: lakes, canals, rivers... It is a highly attractive area to go sailing and boating. However, this goes for the whole of the Province Friesland. Not Sneek only!

It's also a lovely town to visit. Let the tips (upcoming) speak for themselves.

Nantosvelta's new Leeuwarden Page

by Nantosvelta

Hi,

To be honoust, the only thing I saw of Leeuwarden (on a few ocasions though) was the trainstation.
Wherever you want to go in the Dutch province Friesland, you pass this station.
My destination for the weekend was Sneek or as the Frisians call it Snits.
At the youth hostel I met up with Shai (also from VT).
Together we explored Sneek and its surrounding on foot and on bycicle.
Also we spent a few hours on the island Terschelling. Too short of course.
I had a great time and hope to see more of this province soon.
