Dokkum
The convenient location of Dokkum. Its location on the intersection of roads and waters (Dokkumer Grootdiep and Lauwersmeer) made Dokkum a thriving city. In the 11th century the city had permission to mint coins and some of these coins have been found in the Ural Mountains and Iceland.


Nowadays you can still experience the Dokkum of the past when you walk past the beautiful old hulling mills; “The Hope” (1849) and “Zeldenrust” (1862). Alternatively you can take a ride on ‘het Dockumer Lokaaltsje’, the train that travelled through Dokkum in the last century, which even had a famous song written about it. You can also take a boat trip in a restored barge through the canals of Dokkum, although this is no longer pulled by a horse or the skipper.

The Centre

The city offers all sorts of enjoyable pubs, restaurants and shops. The atmosphere in the center of Dokkum is always very pleasant, thanks to all the old buildings such as houses with stepped gables. This town is definitely worth a visit. Feel the atmosphere of this ancient city and enjoy the warmth that Dokkum and its inhabitants have to offer.
