Schiermonnikoog Travel Guide: 48 reviews and 133 photos
We are back ... but we had a great time!! so being back is quite good as well ... new energy to get through the days untill the next vacation!
We were lucky the weather was quite good so we could do quite a lot of sightseeing.
In my memory Schiermonnikoog stands for a feeling of freedom, space and being happy.
I have visited this island often and all the memories I have are good.
Here I felt at home and I never grew bored of it.
Schiermonnikoog is a walking island, for years the little village was at the east point of the island, nowadays it is as if it is at the west point. It is just that lots of sand have been washed away. New land was formed on the east side.
Because a certain type of grass, which holds the sand, was planted over the years, not as much land nowadays disappears.
In case you get to the beach during low tide be prepared for a walk ... an immense sea of sand awaits ya ... pffff .... and do not forget the wind ...
This is at the beach near the red lighthouse. Found lots of big white shells there.
Cycling back from graveyard Vredehof .. tough! steep too! But we raced fer it! and yes , I did not win lol had fun tho! more travel advice
scattered between the trees are seven crosses, old islanders told that 7 Swedish sailers lay buried here. The official... more travel advice
