  • Leeuwarden is the Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018. For this occasion the most beautiful works of art with the Frisian capital as their subject have been collected in Leeuwarden. The most beautiful city views from 1600 to now. Take a walk from the entrance of De Boterhoek street (Andries van der Sloot) to the Prinsentuin park (Cor Reisma, Jacob Banga), stop at the Tuinster water gate, the Chancellery on Turfmarkt street (Cornelis Springer) and continue down to Gedempte Keizersgracht street (Pieter D. Torensma). Compare, with this book in your hand, former and present times.

    The Historisch Centrum Leeuwarden takes advantage of this celebratory year of culture to present to the public a selection of the finest paintings, prints and drawings made of Leeuwarden from the beginning of the seventeenth century to the present. Never before have so many cityscapes been brought together at the same time. Painters and draftsmen from then and now show the wealth and poverty of the historical city centre; the gems and the rotten bits, the buildings which have been preserved and those which no longer exist.
