Discover the most beautiful places
The eleven cities
On the map to the right you will find the route of the Eleven Cities Tour by motorhome.
The route is the same as for the skating event, but on the road. To experience as much of the tour as possible along the water, we recommend that you set your navigation to “Avoid highways”. This way you will not only visit the eleven cities, but also drive through the countryside, along the water and through the villages that are on the way.
If you want, you can start the tour in Leeuwarden and keep the original order. To experience the real Eleven Cities feeling, it is best to go along the finish arch over the Bonkevaart canal. This finishing arch is in the shape of an Eleven Cities cross. But of course the Eleven Cities Tour is just as beautiful if you drive the tour in a different order. After all, the Eleven Cities Tour by bike does not start or end in Leeuwarden either.
During the famous ice-skating event, skaters have to collect a stamp in each city. This serves as proof that you have really been there. When you have collected all the stamps, you get fame, honour and an Eleven Cities Cross at the end.
On the Eleven Cities Tour with the motorhome, you can also collect a stamp in each city. This stamp card adds a little something extra to the tour.
For each city we clearly indicate where you can get your stamp. Please check this before you start. Some stamp stations are not always open and it would be a shame if you were faced with a closed door.
The eleven cities tour is an initiative of 5 motorhome sites/campsites and the other companies involved. In order to continue to offer this route for free, it is necessary to spend the night at the participating motorhome sites. This not only gives you a chance to win great prizes, but the participating motorhome sites also donate part of the contribution to the Maarten van der Weijden Foundation.
In some places you also get something extra. Delicacies from van der Meulen, fresh bread at supermarket Jumbo Els Boek and a drink from Sonnema Berenburg in Bolsward at restaurant ‘t Veerhuys for example.
There are some more campsites and motorhome sites along the route, but the sites we mention are involved in making this route happen.
