Day trip to Schiermonnikoog


Schiermonnikoog may be the smallest of the Wadden Islands; its nature, tranquillity and typical island feeling ensure that a visit to Schiermonnikoog should not be missed during your holiday in Friesland. Another advantage: you can only explore this beautiful Wadden Island by bike. If you wish, you can rent a bike there as soon as you step off the boat. Discover the cosy village of Schiermonnikoog. Cycle through dunes, forest and enjoy the wide views over the Wadden Sea. It is not for nothing that the Wadden Sea is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Pure enjoyment of unique nature!


A day trip to Schiermonnikoog is easy to do from Holiday Park Ljeppershiem. From your holiday home to the boat in Lauwersoog it is only 22 kilometres away. On the boat you can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee and the fantastic view of the Wadden Sea. Slowly, the Friesian coast disappears and Schiermonnikoog looms up in front of you. A beautiful day of holiday lies ahead of you. Tip: Are you travelling with your own electric bike? You can recharge your bike at your cottage. As you can see, there is really no reason not to visit the Wadden Sea island of Schiermonnikoog during your holiday in Friesland. And... after an active day on Schiermonnikoog, you can relax and enjoy again in your cottage in Friesland!
