History lovers should not miss the Wasserman Bunker. This structure dates to the Second World War, when it was built as part of the coastal defences known as the Atlantic Wall.
After long walks or jogs, there's nothing better than enjoying local delicacies. Local shops and farms are situated within walking distance of our Schiermonnikoog accommodation and apart from fresh fish which you can buy, visitors will appreciate the local drink called Juttertje, a herbal alcoholic beverage said to have many medicinal properties.
Our holiday apartments in Schiermonnikoog are ideally situated and did you know that no cars are allowed on the island? This makes a welcome change from urban lifestyles and rhythms, not to mention air pollution. The quaint little island is part of the West Frisian Islands in the province of Friesland in the Netherlands and therefore makes it great for exploring nearby places such as Ameland and the ever popular region of Groningen.
