The shores of the IJsselmeer are unique. The circle of towns and villages around the lake enjoy a nostalgic charm. One of these historic gems is the town Stavoren. Town became very prosperous in the Middle Ages through trade with England, France and Scandinavia.

Highlights of Stavoren

The medieval legend about the Lady of Stavoren is symbolic for the mysterious decline of the city of Stavoren after a rich and wealthy past. Nowadays, water sports generate the main income. Especially during the summer, since Stavoren is one of the main routes from the Ijsselmeer to the lakes of Friesland.
