visiting mid June

We're travelling round Friesland for a few days before we move on. We've booked at couple of nights in Koudum as a starting point - any suggestions on what to do gratefully received. We're bringing bikes.

Hi, maybe this is too late but you could visit: Hindeloopen, Makkum, Lemmer, the various lakes for water sports, Drent-Friese Wold and Appelscha for biking and golf, Giethoorn is great too. Hope this helps. Have a great stay.

Hi, we are visiting Friesland by the end of August and we will be staying in Franeker. We carry no bikes, our baby is too young for a bike ride (only 3 months old), we travel by car. Would you recommend any of the places where you've been? Have you visited the Planetarium?

Hi

We're in our 50s and no kids - so not sure if we're the right people to ask. But - we did stay for a while at Bergen aan Zee - not really Friesland but very easy to find. It had a fabulous and very child friendly beach and was definitely a family destination. The nicest thing was its lack of commerciality.

As for the baby being too young for a bike. You might be surprised - everyone takes their babies either on their bikes or in a trailer.

We found it didn't much matter where we went - people were kind, the villages are wonderfully pretty and it's all very civilised. Hope you have a great time.
