Welcome to WikiProject Frisia. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Frisians and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Frisia, locally known as Fryslân or Friesland, is a coastal region on the southern coasts of the North Sea that extends from the northeastern Netherlands across northwestern Germany to the border of Denmark. Friesland is also a northern province of the Netherlands with its own distinct language and people. There is a portal for the central part of the region, East Frisia, here. The northernmost part, North Frisia, comprises the Nordfriesland district of Germany and Heligoland island in the German Bight. West Friesland is a province and historic region in the Netherlands.


The goal is to co-ordinate information about Frisia, the Frisians, their historical lands, languages and culture.


  • Frisian people
  • Frisian language
  • Frisian culture
  • Frisian geography
  • Frisian achievements
  • Including Frisians from Netherlands and Germany and fiction
  • excluding Friesian animals (horses and cattle)
