A green meadow landscape cut through by canals and lakes with innumerable sailboats on glittering water, vast polders, waving reed collars and picturesque Frisian villages



Legend has it that Akkrum got its name from two burrowing giants. At Akkrum the giants got into disagreement and both went their separate ways. They dug canals and ditches through the rugged peat landscape. Who would have ever thought that this dispute would create a beautiful open landscape where the Dutch masters of the Golden Age could only dream of. Surprising views with beautiful skies over green grasslands, intersected by a network of canals, ditches and lakes. Add to that countless grazing cows, white sailing boats on blue waters, waving reed collars and brightly colored flowers along the ditch sides and the giants would now shake hands with satisfaction.
