Travelling to Schiermonnikoog

How to get to Schiermonnikoog, and where to stay?

By car

Lauwersoog-Haven is in the north-western corner of Groningen, on the Frysian border, and can be reached via the N361. From Groningen, follow directions towards Winsum and then to Lauwersoog.  If you’re coming from the direction of Leeuwarden, follow the route Dokkum / Lauwersoog.

Schiermonnikoog allows few cars, and you can’t bring your own car, motorcycle, or moped. Only in exceptional cases can you request an exemption with the municipality of Schiermonnikoog (tel.: +31 5190 535050). Make sure to do so well in advance. There are two large parking areas at the ferry, but keep in mind that parking and buying a ticket will cost some time.
