Holiday park Tusken de Marren (between the lakes) is a holiday park in Akkrum. The park is located in the heart of Frisia, with a wonderful location at ‘Meine Sleat’. You’ll find Tusken de Marren at the heart of the Frisian lakes. Going south, you’ll sail to the Sneekermeer, with the north leading you on to the Pikmeer. Tusken de Marren is the ideal holiday destination for your vacation at the waterside.
