Thanks to its great diversity of culture, countryside, lakes and activities, Waterland van Friesland is very attractive for recreational users and tourists alike. Tourism and recreation is one of the mainstays of our economy. Many of our enterprises rely on the income from this branch.
VVV Waterland van Friesland plays a prominent role in bringing together demand and supply. Thanks to a good mix of online and offline media, we can provide tourists and recreational users with correct information and tips. In order to provide excellent hospitality, provision of information and marketing for the region, the VVV Waterland van Friesland receives financial support from the municipalities of De Fryske Marren and Súdwest-Fryslân, while businesses can contribute by becoming members. The contribution fees for 2020 can be found here. The contribution fee can be recouped with ease thanks to the many benefits for members. Together we can ensure that tourists and recreational users feel at home in this beautiful region, and continue to be surprised by the very wide range of activities.
