The city Lemmer has several impressive sights! This place has no less than 29 monuments, so there is no escape from history.
One of those national monuments is the depository in the street Turfland. This beautiful warehouse was built in 1763 and serves as a home today. The town hall was built in 1770, the reformed church in 1716 and the Lemsterschut lock are also on the list of national monuments.
The town hall built in 1770, the reformed church (1716) and the Lemsterschut lock are also on the list of national monuments. The lock was built in 1884 and until the construction of the Afsluitdijk in 1932 it was used as a sea lock.
Like many other Frisian villages, Lemmer is also known as a real water sports city. The village is located directly on the IJsselmeer and is therefore a popular place for tourists. But Lemmer is more than that! During the city walk you will see the tastiest fresh fish on every corner of the street. After all Lemmer is one of the most important fishing places in the Netherlands. You can also see all this in the museum 'Oudheidkamer Lemster Fiifgea', which is filled with objects from fishing and shipping on the Zuiderzee. You will also find a large collection of artificial pottery from the former Lemster pottery factory.
