Terschelling Travel Guide: 53 reviews and 130 photos
Terschelling is one of the so called "Wadden" islands. I spent many summer holiday there when I was young. The island has unique flora and fauna.
The Stryper Churchyard. Here the English were stopped when they ask an old lady how many troops there were around. She replied: "Only a few are standing, but thousand are lying" (She spoke about the graves).
To reach the island yoy have to take the ferry from Harlingen, provence of Friesland. The first you will see is West Terschelling with the Brandaris Lighthouse.
Cranberries, unique for The Netherlands. Due to a stranding the berries came ashore and proved to be in furtile grounds. Terschelling has it's own cranberrie wine industries.
The islands' seniors are watching you from their bench at "Het Wakend Oog". So, if you want to know the latest gossip ......
All good things ends ...
The ferry, nowadays they are bigger and also the harbour is rebuild.
The oldest house is 't Behouden Huys, one of the few houses not distroyed in the fireblaze of August 20 1666, after the English attacked the island. Nowadays it's a museum.
