Four special accommodations on the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site
The Wadden Sea World Heritage Site is a chain of islands with an impressive cultivated landscape. It is a vast area with countless attractions that surprises you with its beauty every day in every season. If you are willing to take your time, you may be rewarded with a view of the tidal flat peeping above the water, or a seal with its young. Discover the unique and fragile nature of an ecosystem in perfect equilibrium with the true night at the Dark Sky Park and the many places where millions of birds congregate. Such an extraordinary environment clearly demands equally special accommodations. We have selected five of them for you.
The wild apple of Schiermonnikoog
The smallest hotel on Schiermonnikoog is called Hotel Ambrosijn and boasts three luxurious four-star suites, a restaurant that makes culinary dreams come true, and a famous ice cream salon that serves the best ice cream made from fresh island cow’s milk. The centrally situated building stands on the Langestreek, a lane with many picturesque islander residences. From here, several roads lead to the beach, into the woods or dunes, and to the sea. Immerse yourself in the history, culture and nature of the island and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Crazy for Hotel Nobel Ameland
On Ameland, you can also spend the night surrounded by centuries-old houses at Hotel Nobel Ameland. This characteristic hotel has a modern interior with every possible amenity. And if that is not special enough, you can spend the night in the small church of Ballum across the street. Glass is used throughout these two mirrored apartments so daylight can reach every nook and cranny. Ballum boasts a beautiful beach with different natural wonders every season, as is to be expected when you travel to such a beautiful island. Ameland is a real paradise with forests, dunes, salt marshes, polders and tidal flats. It has a huge variety of birds as well as the Oerd nature reserve, an amazing vast dune area with sand flats on the east side of Ameland that is highly recommended.
In It Posthûs
Hotel It Posthûs can be found in the Frisian village of Burdaard on the Dokkumer Ee, a barge canal between Leeuwarden and Dokkum that makes for a fantastic boat tour. Despite the building being an old inn, the rooms are equipped with every amenity and have a modern interior. It Posthûs is centrally situated, so it is easy to explore Terschelling, Ameland and/or Schiermonnikoog. Are you hungry after all that activity? It Posthûs runs a great restaurant with a view of the water and the Burdaard bridge, where the staff serves the season on your plate.
Historic warehouse overlooking the harbor
In the historic warehouse overlooking the harbor of Oudeschild, three worlds come together. The freedom and quiet of the island of Texel, the space and privacy like a summer house by the water, and the luxury and service of a hotel suite. The hotel has three boutique suites of different sizes, from cozy to big enough to accommodate an entire family. Oudeschild is the only village on Texel that is right by the sea. You can board a boat in Oudeschild to explore the Wadden Sea and learn about the VOC history of the Texelse Reede at the Kaap Skil museum. Fish restaurant ’t Pakhuus serves delicious regional dishes and fish on the ground floor of the hotel. So, Hotel Texel Suites is certain to delight all your senses.
