Burgum (Dutch: Bergum) is the largest and administrative town of the municipality of Tytsjerksteradiel, in the Dutch province of Friesland, with a population of round about 10.000 inhabitants.
Main things to see in Burgum are the Town Hall and the Krústsjerke (Cross Church) which is the remainder of a convent burned in the Eighty Years' War.

Friesland is renowned for its many lakes and canals. One of these lakes is found nearby the village of Burgum and it is called the Burgumer Mar. Another object of interest is the so-called Poppestien. A large stone deposited in this area during the last ice age (11.000 BC). In ancient times this stone was used in fertility rituals.
