Walking around Frisk

Frisk aan het Spaarne is an amazing starting point for a variety of routes through the surroundings. Whether you’re walking, on your bicycle or by boat; there’s something for everybody. After an active day you just grab yourself a seat outside on our amazing terrace to enjoy our Scandinavian specialities.


The walk called: ‘Industry and trait a the Spaarne’, immerses you in the industrial heritage and the Spaarne. The Spaarne has existed for over 400 years and originally was a river. In the 12th and 13th century the river in the city centre was narrowed and served as an important connection on water for transport of goods (also the Droste cacao beans!). Gradually more and more shipyards, breweries and other entrepreneurs settled on the Spaarne. This walking route is a circle and you can start on different spots, also at Frisk aan het Spaarne. For more information visit the website of ‘Oneindig Noord-Holland’.
