Oerol on Terschelling
Hotel Terschelling - Every year the island is changed for ten days into one big stage for theater, dance, street theater, visual arts and music. Hundreds of artists come down to here to present their new acts.
The new Festival Heart de Deining will be located at a completely new location, namely at West aan Zee, near Paal 8. Part of the Festival Heart is located on the parking lot, another part on the beach.
The performances are specially devised, often on the spot, for a unique location on the island. You experience everything: from large spectacles to mime, from intimate music theater to hilarious circus performances, from westerns to interactive installations: somewhere in the dunes, on the beach, in woods, on dikes, in barns or just on the street. On this map see all locations.
The festival has grown into an international phenomenon with thousands of visitors. You should have seen it once! Many guests come back every year.
Great hotel on the island
During Oerol you can sleep a special hotel stay books. Various charter ships sail specifically to Terschelling to offer extra accommodation options for an attractive price. Book your own room with a made-up bed plus breakfast.
The hotelships are located in the harbor of Terschelling, near the activities in the village. From here you can visit the shows by bike and experience the best atmosphere on the island.
In the unlikely event that a ship can not moor on the shore due to the full port, the ship will anchor at the port entrance. You will then be taken to and from the island with a dinghy. As soon as there is space again, the skipper sails into the harbor. So far this has only occurred once.
Also keep in mind that on Friday a ship can arrive later than 17.00 hours. In that case, you can temporarily store your luggage on another hotelship, so that you can already start exploring the island.
Slaapschepen.nl also offers the possibility to sail from Harlingen on the Wadden Sea to the festival and back from Terschelling. A few weeks before Oerol starts we know when the ships will make the crossing. Everyone who books a room automatically receives information about this via the mail. You can also travel with Slaapschepen.nl without spending the night. Here you will find an overview of all the sailing packages.
In addition to hotel stays, there are also complete Oerol packages. This is a combination of sailing crossings to the island and a multi-day stay on Terschelling. See for more information Oerol sailing packages.
