On April 10, 2010, the Language Route was opened in Schiermonnikoog. Poems in the original dialect of Schiermonnikoog can be found at nine places, spread over the island. The poems were written by three poets from Schiermonnikoog, the former director of pilotage in Rotterdam Lammert Wiersma (1881-1980), the teacher and poet Pita Grilk (1905-1980) and the captain Jacob Fenenga (1888-1972). The language route takes you past the nine stones with the Eilander poems. The translation of the poems is for sale at the Tourist Office or at the Visitor Center. The 9 locations are: Bus stop Oosterreeweg, Reeweg (near the blue posts), Bank van Banck, Melle Grietjespad (near the bench and bridge), Westerduinenpad, Near the lighthouse, End Badweg (bench at beach crossing); Vredenhof, Torenstreek/Langestreek (in the park)
