Ameland is one of the inhabited Wadden Islands and like all West and East Frisian Islands, she is a unique piece of nature.
Consisting mostly of sand dunes, marshes and sloping hills, this landscape attracts nature lovers throughout the season.
The swamp nature reserve on the east, which is home to many types of exceptional birds, is also a popular place to go for spotters and wildlife enthusiasts.
Offering over 100 kilometres of paved paths across the island, cyclists and hikers will find it a true paradise indeed.
The island counts four villages; Hollum, Nes, Buren and Ballum.
A wide range of museums and sights will portray the intriguing history of the island, from the floods that washed away two villages to German troops occupying the island in the Second World War.
When visiting Ameland, we suggest going to the Ameland Museum of Nature or Nobels Nostalgic Museum.
Both combine fun with a good whip of education and promise a great day out for all ages.
But the highlight of the day surely is climbing all 236 steps of the Bornrif lighthouse!
