Sneek is a bustling water sport city in southwest Friesland. The city is richly endowed with monuments and old cityscapes, has various museums, a cozy and varied shopping center and is rich in terraces, cafés and restaurants.

Join Connect International on a short trip to Sneek for some sight-seeing, lunch and spirit tasting.  First, we will have a self-guided tour of the famous Waterpoort, a great spot for that Instagram selfie! Next, a short walk to visit Old Widow Joustra, (situated in one of the oldest buildings (1484) in Sneek).  Here we will get to sample the popular 150-year-old Frysian drink, Beerenburg, as well as a variety of other spirits (rated top 10 by TripAdvisor).
