Nes is a village in the municipality of Heerenveen in the province of Friesland with about 1100 inhabitants. Nes is located on the river de Boorne and is also situated in the village center of Akkrum, which is also known as Akkrum-Nes. Until the municipal reorganization of 1 January 1984, Nes became part of the Utingeradeel municipality, which expired on that date, after which it fell under Boornsterhem for thirty years. Since January 1, 2014, Nes is part of the municipality of Heerenveen. In the cemetery there is also one of the bell chairs in Friesland.
In total, the site Nes has two entries in the national monument register: the wooden bell-chair with swung-over shelter on fenced cemetery (the clock was built in 1950) and a bridge over the boorne with a narrow fixed section and a wider rotatable part, both resting on a Mated pillar.
The village has risen sharply in the 21st century. Where the village did not reach 200 inhabitants in 1999, it has already reached 1000 inhabitants in 2005. After that, the population has not grown much more and seems to fluctuate around 1100.
In the vicinity of the village there are mostly many meadows, but as Friesland is known, there is also a lot of water in the area. Several canals, rivers and lakes are within easy reach and offer many possibilities for walking or cycling.
