Sneek is very famous about its watersports. Every first week in August there is the so-called Sneekweek. There are lots of waters in Friesland, lakes, small rivers and so on. In the old days Sneekweek was primarely meant for boatchallenges. Later on the festivities around the challenges became more interesting. Now the most people in Holland come to Sneek, not to sail, but to party eventhough the challenges are still important as well. In de shoppingmall are a tremendous amount of live-bands and local artists and lots of beer and food.

The Sneekweek starts on the first Friday of August. This opening is in the core of Sneek near to the 'Watergate' (architecture). You will see a boat tour with several different boats with musicians on it. The official opening is being ended by a firework show. After that you can go home, or go party!

Near to Sneek we have the Sneek lake. On the Sneek lake are usualy the boat/sailing challenges. Especially on wednesday. There are also a few restaurants overthere where with sunny weather the teracces are crowded.

I hope you have learned a little bit more about the Sneekweek!
