From Delfzijl you can drive along the Ems to the Eemshaven. The boat to Borkum, the German Wadden Island that is surprisingly rich in history, awaits you there.

Groningen vistas
You depart from Hotel Restaurant de Boegschroef, a cozy location on the harbor of Delfzijl. You can enjoy a breath of fresh air on the dike along the Ems! Here you have beautiful views over the water and the vast Groningen polders. Along your route are neighborhoods with striking names. For example, Poland owes its name to its remoteness. Oudeschip is said to have originated around a ship that came ashore in the eighteenth century and was converted into a house.

Borkum
Once you have arrived at Borkum, you can discover a lot of history. In the Hanseatic period, the island was a pirate's nest. There are some interesting sights to see, such as the Old Lighthouse, a former church tower from the fifteenth century. In the harbor you can visit the Borkum Riff IV. This former lightship now serves as a museum. Its predecessor was used by Radio Veronica for a number of years after the sale.

This hotel is beautifully situated on the lively harbor boulevard of Delfzijl. From the hotel you have a beautiful view of the marina. The port of Delfzijl has a rich history. For example, Michiel de Ruyter moored there in 1665 with the West Indies Fleet. In the last century, mainly large sailing ships moored here, which were later replaced by steamships and motor ships. Delfzijl developed into a harbor town full of seafarers, shipyards and a trading quay. Today this quay has been transformed into the harbor boulevard. In the surrounding polders there are many old wierde villages and centuries-old buildings. You can perfectly discover the interesting history of Delfzijl from the Bow thruster. Sleep in one of the luxurious rooms, let yourself be pampered with good food and then set out in Delfzijl full of fresh energy. The menu in the restaurant is very varied and every season there are different dishes on the menu. You can also choose from an extensive wine selection here. Enough choice.
