Workum Travel guide
Workum : Michelin's recommendations
This small town was once a prosperous port where the trade in eels flourished. It has become an important summer holiday centre for watersports. The town is also well-known for its pottery varnished in shades of brown and decorated mostly with a frieze of white scrolls. Workum has preserved some interesting houses topped by stepped gables in the shape of a bell.
