Spend the night on the water

When you visit a port city like Harlingen, how nice is it to spend the night on the water? Harlingen is the gateway to the most beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands: the Wadden Sea World Heritage. It is highly recommended to set sail with the Brown Fleet and spend the night between the sandbanks and seals. 

And did you know that the Wadden Sea area is known to be one of the darkest spots in the Netherlands? There is practically no light pollution so a night in this area guarantees to watch the unprecedented starry skies. In a nutshell: there are so many reasons to stay at Harlingen. You can even book a ship from the Brown Fleet including a captain for a day, night or a longer period of time. It's up to you! Enjoy!

Of course, if you have your own boat, Harlingen is also a great mooring place and base.
