Dictionary of Dutchness


A LAW is a Lange Afstand Wandelpad or long-distance footpath which uses red and white horizontal stripes to indicate which way to go. The Netherlands has some 24 LAWs, which have to be over 100km to qualify. The longest (400km) is the Zuiderzeepad which runs from Stavoren in Friesland to Enkhuizen on the IJsselmeer coast.
