We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of events, such as:

Eleven Cities Tours
Among other things Hindeloopen is known for the Eleven Cities Tour. Besides ice-skating you can enjoy the Tour in various other ways: cycling, walking, Stand Up Paddling, rowing, sailing and driving. Hindeloopen is one of the 11 places where to get stamps for taking part in the Tour. The Frisian countryside has plenty of wonderful views, picturesque villages and (historical) sights to offer along the way.

IFKS Skûtsjesilen (Open Frisian Championship Skûtsjesilen)
This sailing race with authentic skûtsjes (sailing boats) takes place once a year off the Hindeloopen coast. Awaiting the opening race on the IJsselmeer, dozens of skûtsjes are mooring in the old harbour of this former fishing town. The races can be followed from the dike as well as the water.

Delta Lloyd Hylper Hurdsilerij (Hindeloopen sailing race)
Every fall the Hylper Hurdsilerij is organised off the Hindeloopen coast. It is a sailing race for traditional Lemsteraken (type of flat-bottomed fishing boat).

These are just a few of the events, there are many more. Please click what’s on, the current events guide.
