The Scharsterrijn-canal and Zandwater-lake are located on the northern part of the Tjeuke-lake and the Broere-trench at the eastern part of the Tjeuke-lake. 

The Tjeuke lake is approximately 22 square kilometres. However not all parts of the lake have the same depth. Some parts are even less than a meter deep.

Around the lake you will find the villages Echten, Echtenerbrug, Rohel, Delfstrahuizen, Oosterzee and Oldeouwer, which offer a various activities. 

The origin story of the Tjeuke-lake

Next to the steam pumping station of Echten (which was used to control the water level of the lake) there is a statue of Tsjûke and March. The statues tells the origin story of the lake. However there are two stories. In the First story Two female farmers walk home after having milked their cows. After they had discovered a fire, the woman carrying the milk refused to extinguish the fire after which the other woman scolded her Tsjûke, a Frisian dog name. The name has taken on a life of its own and would have been used for the later developed lake. In the Second story, two sisters lost each other in the smoke of a fire. They kept shouting to each other: Tsjûke and March, their voices remained audible for a long time and formed together Tsjûkemar, forming the name for the later developed lake. 

This area is also well known for its towns which offer a lot of water sport activity’s. Towns like Lemmer, Terherne (which is widely known for being the shooting location of popular Dutch movie Skipper of the Kameloen) and Langweer. And then you also have the atmospheric town called Balk.

The Frisian hot air balloon event

Held annually from the Nutsbaan in Joure the Frisian hot air balloon event has become a popular attraction. During the event approximately 35 hot air balloons ascend which provide for an unforgettable image against the unique Frisian landscape.
