Did you know that Harlingen is one of the famous 11 cities in the province of Friesland? Or that this small city has over 500 monuments that people can visit, sleep in or enjoy a nice meal? Most of these monumental buildings have been repurposed, so that visitors can enjoy their beauty. Hotel Almenum consists of three of these monumental buildings, one of which has been converted into luxurious, family-sized apartments. “We used to have a lot of guests who only stayed the night, so that they could take an early ferry to the nearest islands,” begins Marije Bloembergen of Hotel Almenum. “Nowadays, people are beginning to see the peace and calm of our own little city.”
