The Elfstedentocht (Eleven cities tour) is a popular skating tour through Fryslân and connects already the eleven cities by ice. However, in spring 2018, the 11 fountains will connect the Frisian cities by effervescent and booming water.

The 11 fountains were created by the eleven most significant artists worldwide, who get inspired by the historical cities. Each artist created one of the eleven fountains and matched them to the city and its history. Therefore, the 11 fountains are even more. They are remarkable, modern and outstanding works of art, who represent a Frisian city and their inhabitants. This will make the 11 fountains to the highlight of the Cultural Capital City 2018 and even after 2018.
