The most beautiful place in the Netherlands

Graaf Bernstorff, located in the heart of the smallest inhabited Dutch Wadden Island, has become a household name. The hotel situated in the protected village centre of Schiermonnikoog derives its name from the last private owner of the island. The brightly designed rooms feature partly antique furnishings.

The sunny terrace and the large heated veranda create a home for guests who love good food and drink. The restaurant with lofty ceilings, dazzling chandeliers and beautiful illumination has a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The pure and original dishes, from delicatessen to ribeye steaks and stews, are prepared with mainly organic produce. The meat comes from privately owned livestock. The unique library can be used for private dinners and meetings. National Park Schiermonnikoog features the widest beaches in Europe.

The island is the ideal place for long walks and bicycle trips. Water sports and beach activities include flying a kite, kite surfing, beach golf etc. Graaf Bernstorff will be happy to pack your picnic or lunch to enjoy on the beach or in the dunes.
