Hindeloopen Things to Do

  • by Xefian Written Jan 29, 2006

    Between Hylpen and Stavoren is a small road . With sheep / dijk /and Isselmeer to one side. About half way between the two and hard to notice from a car is a bird watching station perched on the Meer. accessible by a gate and path through the reeds it makes a nice stop to enjoy the natural setting of this area . There are free of charge large binoculars mounted in the station, and we found the area deserted other than several sheep. As in so many locations in NL ,this area makes for a nice bicycle excusion.

    It won't take long to explore the town . But one may want to linger and enjoy the experience. Strolling the streets ,or watching the ships from the dijk ,this town is just so relaxing ,and if you've been in the big cities it makes a nice counterpoint to see a more traditional view of the Country. The town church has a perceptible lean to it . Many of the "Golden Age" homes are still in use .

    Hindeloopen has a unique style of wood painting that can be found throughout Fryslan. It involves rather intricately painted wooden objects such as jewelry boxes,plates,etc, and is quite beautiful. The style is referred to as "Oude Hindelooper Schilderkunst"...The prices are fairly reasonable ...a 3" by 5" by 2" deep jewelry box selling for 12 Euro ....The telephone number and addresses come from the bottom of a piece we bought in June 05...These make nice gifts or souvineers from this gem of a town. The pic onone of our "things to do " pages was taken in front of the shop...
