Harbour Crane Hotel in Holland

Holland knows how to surprise and amaze with its peculiarities. We invite you to be surprised again and visit the hotel in the crane - Crane Hotel in Harlingen Heaven. And this unusual hotel is very popular.

The crane is located in the Dutch town of Harlingen Haven and is located in the port. The hotel consists of just one luxurious double room in a former machine room. This crane was used in the port and  served cargo ships until 1999. Here timber was unloaded from ships from Russia and Scandinavia. By the way, for port work, a grab is used to ensure high-performance handling of bulk cargo, scrap metal and other materials. Therefore, it is recommended to turn to specialists to organize the transshipment of goods that general-purpose cranes cannot cope with.

In 2001, the crane passed to new owners. The decor of the hotel looks very cosmic, the restoration of the crane took about two years. Lighting and various devices are controlled via touch screens. The room has a TV with DVD player and a large selection of movie discs. An unusual special elevator looks futuristic. The oval shower cubicle in the room is designed for two people.


From the windows of the room you can admire the beauty of the old town, the Wadden Sea and the nearby port. To choose a different view, it is possible to turn the crane cabin 360 degrees. To do this, you need to climb into the crane operator's seat and use the lever to fully control the panorama.
