Museum It Gysbert Japicxhûs

Friesland is the only bilingual region of the Netherlands. Because Frisian is officially recognised as the second language. This would probably never have happened without Gysbert Japicx (1603-1666). This schoolmaster and cantor from Bolsward was a famous poet and author in the Frisian language. In his birth house, you can trace the life story of this very striking man.
