Harlingen is the only seaside city in Friesland. A city full of monuments and history. From the city, ferries depart to the Wadden islands Vlieland and Terschelling. A large fleet of historical ships has Harlingen as its home port. Harlingen has a lively trading history and is an important fishing port. The atmosphere is convivial. Its location on the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea is breathtakingly beautiful. And on the border between city and mudflats stand our four dream accommodations.


Dromen aan Zee started with the purchase and renovation of the Harlingen Lighthouse; an initiative of the cultural entrepreneur who is still the owner. Already in the third month after the opening of the lighthouse in its new function, the lighthouse reached an occupancy rate of 100 percent. In the years that followed, the Harlingen Lifeboat and Harbor Crane were added. The lifeboat was recently taken out of service after 23 years of faithful duty. Today, the remaining big boys have two 'sisters': Wachter and Ahoy. The management of the four historical objects is in the hands of Hilda and Patrick Uphoff and their team.


In Harlingen, you can find countless nice restaurants. In all price ranges and with various culinary traditions. Restaurant ’t Havenmantsje holds a special place. This is not only due to the beautiful building and the lovely location by the harbor. It is also and especially the merit of owner and master chef Marco Poldervaart.

Dromen aan Zee offers two packages in collaboration with ’t Havenmantsje, which can be booked in combination with any of our accommodations. Poldervaart and his team will surprise you with an excellent dinner of products from the Frisian hinterland and the Wadden Sea.

For a 5-course dinner for two people, you pay 150 euros on top of the overnight price.
