Wow, what a find, a so close to where I was staying. Perfect tranquility just a throw away. Somewhat of a rare treat as I love saunas, and these are some of the best I've enjoyed on my travels. Two Finnish saunas (above 95 deg C), a cool sauna, steam room, in/out hot jacuzzi, in/out cooling pool, outside jacuzzi, 2 plunge pools, waterfall shower, overhead bukets, infra-red room, restaurant, bar, solarium, outside seating, the works.
From the Stadhouderlijk Hotel, turn left, go up the first side alley (currently has a skip), to crossroads, turn left, and the sauna is on your right a few doors down.
I was there a while so took advantage of the month card, 100 euros for a whole month, bargain, especially as one-off entry is 16.5 euros. Other discounts available.
Visit the airbase at Open House days. This year it was on july 6 and 7. You can read and see more about it in my TRAVELLOGUE! There are pictures of stuntteams, fighter planes, helicopters and the people there.

On my hunt for records I just was surprised by the thursday summer market at the Wilhelminaplein full of records, books and toys.
This cow wanted her picture taken so badly, I hereby give it her own space ;-)
DOKKUM is a very old town in FRYSLAND where you will find a good market and nice walks around the place.
Maybe not so obvious, but you should visit a graveyard when you're in Friesland. Especially when you're Dutch-speaking the difference between the Frisian language and the Dutch language is striking.
