AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE

New in B&B De Dream: Dream trips

In De Dream many conversations among our guests are about: “What is the best place to visit? Where is it fun and unique? Our guests enjoy the province the most when we help them explore it!

That is why we decided to offer special travel arrangements. It will be starting this year! From May you will be able to enjoy our packages. Currently we are testing the packages, they can be booked from April. But, if you are interested in an adventure feel free to contact us!

Back to your Frisian roots, a search in archives.
Knowledge about our origins. “Where do you come from?’’ and ‘’what family do you belong to?’’ keep our interest and are important for us. -> This part needs some development… Yes, cool, but what about it?

Special family weekend: a unforgettable experience in…
You can book with us an all-in family arrangement where you reconnect with your roots, and at the same time visit authentic places connected with that past of your (grand)parents in Friesland. This itinerary is based on the results of a preliminary research of your ancestors we performed with basic information you provided us. An experience that is not only beautiful in setting but also a great way to learn about your past.

We will take you to the Frisian archives, where we show you the results of our search. Thereafter we visit the places where your ancestors lived. Local Frisians will show you around and you will have a typical Frisian lunch with a villager of the place your family comes from. The next day you have time to explore that area. You conclude your visit with a festive dinner in a Frisian ambiance, where Frisian products are central on the table.

This package is also available for 2 persons.

Eleven Cities Fountain Tour

As the fountains are closed for the wintertime you can book this tour again in March 2020.

An Elfstedentocht on ice is an increasing rarity: the ice-skating tour of almost 200 kilometers on natural ice was last done in 1997. Practical as the Frisians are, they simply make a new Elfstedentocht. Not connected by ice, but by the sparkling water of fountains.

These fountains were made by top international artists from eleven different countries. The makers were not chosen at random: a match was sought between the work of the artist and the character and history of the relevant Eleven Cities.

Depending on your place of departure, we will take you to these famous Frisian Eleven Cities, and of course the well-known tile bridge. Along the way a ‘hapke and snapke’ (lunch and snacks) to keep up the energy!
