The nights in Leeuwarden are very different than the days. It’s when the night animals come out in all their glory, and that surely is something worth observing. Dutch and foreigner youth alike both disinhibit themselves in the streets that belong to them after sunset. This usually corresponds to Grote Hoogstraat, Oude Doelesteeg and Ruiterskwartier, the three streets that gather pretty much all the night life of the city. More
This work of graffiti, made by Harke Broersma, is very visibly located in the centre of Leeuwarden. You can find the artwork in the Oude Doelesteeg. The graffiti is a reproduction of a detail of the painting “Een gunstig uitkijkpunt” from the Dutch 19th century painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who was born in Dronrijp, Fryslân, and went to school in Leeuwarden. He was an influential academic realism painter. In the work is also the webpage www.mooileeuwarden.nl mentioned, a site with information about cultural happenings and places in Leeuwarden.
