From the locals
Stay away from the Red Light District!
Especially at night-time. In Leeuwarden, there are gangs of foreigners waiting to pounce, start fights and relieve you of your cash. If you see a large group ahead of yuou, turn around and leave sharpish. I'm told it's becoming a problem in the city. It tends to happen, as one group approaches the unsuspecting, then other groups join in, starting a fight with the first, with the unsuspecting caught up in the middle. Please avoid, one of the guys working in the hotel had a narrow escape there, and he lives in Leeuwarden.
This must be the only downside of the whole city.
