Harbour Crane Hotel • Harlingen • The NETHERLANDS - 5

Watch the video at:


Many cities tear down their old buildings. However in Harlingen, in The Netherlands, you can stay overnight at the historic lighthouse, a repurposed sea lifeboat or even in an old industrial crane. The dockside crane was once used to unload timber brought to Harlingen's’ port from Sweden and Norway. Now the crane’s old machine room has been transformed into a luxurious bedroom. After your breakfast you can even sit at the controls and spin the crane around. As the manager, Carla Comello, says “Of course they are monuments. They say something about Holland, how Holland was in earlier times.”
