Joure is not officially a city but is actually too big to just be called a village. It has more than 13,000 residents and is still growing! The residents of Joure are called Jousters. It’s the capital of the municipality of the Frisian Lakes. Joure is centrally located in Friesland and is the place where the Frisian Balloon Festival is held every year. Of course, it’s also become quite famous because of Douwe Egberts. The coffee company started in Joure and is still here.
