The Prinsentuin, built in 1648, is a city park in the centre of Leeuwarden. It has been a much loved place by the citizens for years. Here you can relax with friends and have a picnic or barbecue, or you could go for a lovely walk. During the summer, small concerts are held in the gazebo, making the park the place to be during summer time. The Prinsentuin park is also known as the student backyard.
