The climate of Leeuwarden (the Netherlands)
Leeuwarden is located in the northern part of the province of Friesland of which it also is the capital. Ever since Roman times the area surrounding Leeuwarden has been inhabited. In the 15th century several villages merged into one other and became Leeuwarden. In the 15th century Leeuwarden was also granted town privileges. Among the most beautiful buildings in the town are: St. Bonifatius church, the weighing house and the leaning bell tower Oldehove. The crypt of the Frisian Nassauís is situated in the Jacobijner church. Leeuwarden is one of the eleven cities during the elfstedentocht (eleven city skating tour). Cambuur Leeuwarden soccer club play their home matches in Leeuwarden. Leeuwarden has a moderate maritime climate strongly influenced by the North Sea and the warm Gulf Stream. Because of its northerly situation temperatures are slightly lower than in the more southerly located places. During the winter chances of subzero temperatures (during the night) are much higher than in other parts of the country. Summers are pleasantly warm with temperatures around 20 degrees Celsius.
