Bezoekerscentrum Mar en Klif


Southwest Fryslân is, for good reason, a national landscape! Start your ‘expedition’ at the Mar and Klif visitor centre – fun for young and old. Experience the story of the coast with cliffs, the clay area with medieval mounds and dikes, the five picturesque Elfsteden cities, the vast farming landscape, and the charmingly rolling Gaasterland where forest, meadow, and water alternate. In the country air you will know more. See more. Enjoy more.

Southwest Fryslân is, for good reason, a national landscape! Start your ‘expedition’ at the Mar and Klif visitor centre – fun for young and old. Experience the story of the coast with cliffs, the clay area with medieval mounds and dikes, the five picturesque Elfsteden cities, the vast farming landscape, and the charmingly rolling Gaasterland where forest, meadow, and water alternate. In the country air you will know more. See more. Enjoy more.

In the visitor centre, you will discover many aspects of National Landscape Southwest Fryslân. Throughout the exhibition, you will find all kinds of fun activities for children. Filing wood, playing with flints, crawling through an ice cave and badger den, and visiting a hunter’s hut between the tree roots under the ground, analysing bird pellets (which you get from a real bird-pellet machine) in the birdwatching hut, building old Frisian houses, and much more.

Adults can indulge in stories of ancient and new history. Here you learn to read the landscape. For example, exploring the traces the Ice Age left behind. Moreover, did you know that you can still clearly see the influence of people from the Middle Ages in the landscape? The remnants of their efforts, such as mounds and dykes, can be seen everywhere. You even learn how to find ditches that were dug in the Middle Ages. At the Mar and Klif visitor centre you will also learn to recognize the later history of the landscape such as agriculture and nature development. And of the battles that took place here in World War II and long before that. 

Visitor centre Mar and Klif is a surprisingly fun and educational outing! Experience it for yourself and visit us...
