Description provided by property
Situated in the beautiful historic centre of Groningen, in the northern part of Holland, this classic Dutch sailing clipper offers a unique stay, close to the lively city Groningen.
Klipper Zwadde's cabins feature traditional wooden panelling, bunk beds and heating. Each room has a basin and there are 2 shared bathrooms with a shower for communal use.
With lots of pubs, historic buildings, museums and the concert hall nearby, the hotel presents itself as the ideal base to explore this picturesque town. Klipper Zwadde also has an on-board games room.
The houseboat sails during summer and therefore is only available to book in autumn, winter and spring.
Please note that all rooms are situated at a ship. The ship is located opposite Hoge der A 24.
The ship is 24 metres long, 5 metres wide and 2.10 metres high. It was built in 1897 and has been used as sailing freight ship in the past to move coal, turf, potatoes and wheat from one part of Holland to another. In the 1950's a few idealists started restoring these boats to sailing ships again, of course with certain luxury. The ship was from then on used as a sailing boat for participating guests, who wanted to make trips in the summer in the shallow waters of Holland, Ijsselmeer and Waddensea. You can find the ship across from the address: Hoge der a 10, Groningen
