Harlingen was formerly a great whaling port, with its boats sailing as far as Greenland until 1850. Today, the town is a center of shrimp and prawn fishing and exports dairy products to the United Kingdom. Harlingen is also the departure points of boats to the islands of Terschelling and Vlieland.

Harlingen Zuiderhaven

This is Zuiderhaven, the old port of Harlingen. It’s always amazing for me to find a Chinese restaurant wherever I go on this planet. Check out the photos and see how many I found in Harlingen.
