Documentary about the city of Franeker. After a brief historical introduction, the film shows the main streets, canals, and buildings of Franeker, including the beautiful town hall built in 1591. Also explored in detail is the accident that befell Prince Johan Maurits of Orange in 1665 when he visited Franeker: he fell into the water, and only barely managed to be saved. Of note in the film are the sparsely populated streets – in contrast to the crowds seen in some of the other 'city films’.
