In the footsteps of Gunter Sachs and BB, Sylt

In the footsteps of Gunter Sachs and BB, Sylt

The most secret and chic of the northern Frisian Isles, Sylt for a long time served as a landmark for the billionaire Gunter Sachs and his wife, the legendary Brigitte Bardot. During the 1960s, Sylt was the St. Tropez of the north, where you could go from party to party, your feet in the sands of Buhne. Since then, other stars have taken up the mantle, enjoying the great beauty and discretion of this place.

Excursion to the Halligen archipelago

Excursion to the Halligen archipelago

A sign of the times, of the fifty islands which make up the Halligen archipelago, today only nine are left. High tides have engulfed these bits of land where, for a long time, the inhabitants ‘preserved’ themselves from civilisation. There was no electricity until 1950 and no drinking water until 1960. However, this isolation allowed them to keep a certain extreme charm, as if you were at ‘the end of the world’.

Hotel Seesteg

Norderney - Germany

Hotel and restaurant on the seafront. Dating back to the 18th century, Hotel Seesteg was once the building in which the wooden boards of the pier were stored during the stormy winters on the North Sea coast. Today, it has been converted from a storehouse into an exceptional, relaxing haven. Everything is designed to offer an unparalleled, intimate atmosphere and smart style and design. Every room faces the sea and the outdoor rooftop pool offers breathtaking views of the Wadden Sea National Park, a Unesco World Heritage site. The large floor-to-ceiling windows boast a direct view of the white sand beach. ... Learn moreless

Between countryside and poetry, Norderney

Between countryside and poetry, Norderney

A biosphere reserve, the Nationalpark Niedersächsisches Wattenmeer is particularly impressive when the tide is out, giving more space to the skies of the north. At the heart of the nature reserve, only the two islands of Borkum and Norderney allow access by car. But it was to the latter island that the German poet Heinrich Heine came in search of inspiration…

Bij Jef

Den Hoorn-Texel - Netherlands

Hotel and restaurant in a village. An hour and a half from Amsterdam, twenty minutes by boat from Den Helder — between the land and the sea — lies Texel, an island in the Frisian archipelago. It is where chef Jef Schuur, hand in hand with his wife Nadine Mögling, has chosen to open a Michelinstarred restaurant and several beautiful modern suites in what was once a presbytery. With the changing tides, he cooks local products such as Wadden Sea cockles with Texel lamb bacon, parsley root cream and a jus of puffed celery. Nadine, a sommelier, is an expert in European wines and uses her extensive knowledge of organic and natural wines to create subtle and unique pairings to compliment the cuisine's harmonious contrasts of tastes and textures. ...

Walk in the Dunes of Texel National Park

Walk in the Dunes of Texel National Park

The largest of the Wadden Islands, Texel is home to typical little villages dispersed in the sumptuous landscapes. Between April and August, the island’s reserves shelter almost 300 species (including the famous eider duck) which come to enjoy its protective dunes and fresh water lakes. Well marked footpaths allow bird lovers to appreciate the fauna in the best conditions, all in one day.

Museum of the Sea and Scavengers, Texel

Museum of the Sea and Scavengers, Texel

The Kaap Skil Museum offers an astonishing contract between its modern setting, made from glass and recycled wooden boards, and this incredible heap of treasures recuperated from shipwrecked boats at the bottom of the Waddenzee. In fragments, we discover the story of the Dutch East India Company and the history of windmills. Between the collections, visitors can learn how to make ropes and smoke fish.

On the route

Rembrandt, Vermeer and the others, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Rembrandt, Vermeer and the others, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

If the Rijksmuseum is known by all for its impressive Rembrandt collection (the famous ‘The Night Watch’) and the works of Flemish painters, the museum also offers splendid paintings depicting the landscapes of the North Sea, just like the canvases by the painters from the Hague School, or, of course, Vermeer’s ‘The Little Street’ (1668), painted in the town of Delft.

Architectural walk around Rotterdam

Architectural walk around Rotterdam

Rotterdam is an unmissable stop for all those who love modern, contemporary or futuristic architecture. Partly destroyed during the Second World War, the country’s second city was able to reinvent itself through buildings as varied as the old Van Nelle Fabriek factory, the Erasmusbrug Bridge, the Boompjestorens towers or the headquarters of KPN Telecom. For many, Rotterdam is now the ‘Manhattan of the Netherlands’!

Under the belfry of Middelburg

Under the belfry of Middelburg

It was the Dutch East India Company which made Middelburg prosperous in the past. The boats laden with spices have disappeared from the quays but on the old canals the traditional flat bottomed sail boats still pass by. Travellers draw alongside to discover the old windmills, the abbey, the town hall and its belfry, a splendid model in the flamboyant gothic style.

Seafood tasting, Yerseke

Seafood tasting, Yerseke

Those who love seafood flock to the outskirts of Yerseke’s little port. Located on the Eastern Scheldt, the village benefits from a dam which regulates the tides and allows oysters to be harvested. Herewe can also find the only auction house in the country to sell mussels. Every year, during August, they celebrate Mosseldag, ‘mussel day’. Tasting is compulsory !

Hotel Heritage

Bruges - Belgium

Hotel and restaurant in town. Only 50 metres from the Place du Marché, this fine 19th century building is the ideal starting point to explore on foot, by carriage or boat the historic, mythical and romantic town of Bruges, its museums and boutique. On returning to the Heritage, relax in one of the guest rooms with their unique, sophisticated décor or in the comfortable lounge bar, Le Magnum. To savour local cuisine, head for Le Mystique restaurant, with its charm that has remained intact since 1869, where you will be privy to the delights of a 14th century wine cellar. The vaulted fitness room has also been wonderfully preserved and dates from the 12th century. ... Learn moreless

The Procession of the Holy Blood, Bruges

The Procession of the Holy Blood, Bruges

Perhaps more than on any other day of the year, Brussels, the Venice of the North, should be discovered on Ascension day during the Procession of the Holy Blood. The famous relic brought back from Jerusalem by Thierry d’Alsace is carried through the streets of the ancient medieval town, celebrated by the clergy, the friaries and inhabitants of the town, all dressed in costumes from the Middle Ages.

Behind the beach, the Grand Casino, Knokke-Heist

Behind the beach, the Grand Casino, Knokke-Heist

Knokke-Heist is certainly the most elegant of the sea resorts on the Belgian coast. Along the edge of the beach, the Grand Casino has all the trappings of luxury and gaming. Slot machines and games tables attract a flamboyant, young crowd, under the imposing gleam of Venice glass, frescoes by Magritte and the modern art of Keith Haring. To enter the casino you must be over 21 and smartly dressed…
