Industrial dockside crane hotel, Harlingen, Friesland, Netherlands, Wadden Sea

Industrial Dockside Crane Hotel, Harlingen, Friesland, Netherlands, Wadden Sea

They’ve added tasteful decorations, the latest audio-video technology, a comfy double bed, and a twin person shower cabin, but also kept some of the elements that make this place so unique, like the observation deck and original windows. Perched about 17 feet above Harlingen’s peer, the Crane hotel is no longer accessed via its old steel ladder, but by a modern internal lift. Replacing the external ladders with modern lift to gain entry, the old machine room in the body of the crane has been transformed into a luxurious bedroom that would not be out of place in the most modern of design hotels.
And as if just spending the night in a real dockside crane wasn’t cool enough, you can also satisfy the kid in you by playing actually driving the industrial equipment. The crane is still functional, and you can rotate it 360 degrees to catch some amazing views of the old Dutch fishing town.
The Crane Hotel’s operators recommend that you only pack a suitcase or soft bag if you value your space. Also, for safety reasons, only two people are allowed on the premises at the same time. A stay at the Crane Hotel in Harlingen will set you back $400 a night. It’s certainly not the cheapest hotel you can find, but it’s the only one that will let you play with your room, and that alone makes it all worth it.
