Terschelling: beautiful nature, rich in culture

From the boat you can see the only natural bay of the Netherlands. You’ll arrive at the only port situated entirely in a nature reserve (Natura 2000). And you haven’t even gone ashore yet. Terschelling offers beautiful nature and rich culture. But it’s the combination of the two that really make it exceptional. There's the enormous bunker complex buried beneath the Hoge Duin, the shipwreck house on the Boschplaat and of course the local theatre festival Oerol.
