A Home From Home

There is no better place for sleeping than in one's own bed. Therefore it is advised for most travellers to stay where they are.

Our guesthouse, which came into being from the "Seamen's Mission," is not the usual kind of hotel. Comprising only six rooms in an old canal house, it is almost like a large apartment dwelling. It includes a day room with sitting area and a galley (no stove) for quick self-service.

Employees quickly get to know the guests and answer questions and requests with pleasure.

Arrived! Congratulations!

Michael Thiedmann was born in Lichtenfels and grew up on the Upper Main. After his confirmation, Thiedmann spent ten years in the evangelical work with children and young people. This gave rise to the desire to become a pastor. At first his way to Amsterdam led him to volunteer at the German Seamen's Mission. He then studied religious education and church education in Nuremberg. After two years he studied theology in Berlin, Munich and Neuendettelsau.

Floral greetings on board

What can a single flower effect in a man? Much, as we have observed once again. As last year, before Easter, we brought a touch of the spring on board of the oil tankers. The sailors, no matter what nation, rejoiced every time. A kind of color between all the gray, steel walls, placed directly next to the TV, in the cargo control room or on the window sill.

Happy people alone because of a small flower in a pot. And that is why we decided to bring the spring on board next year again

Donations Christmas Gifts 2017wao 2 2017

They rejoiced - many hundreds of seamen. They expected our visits in the days before Christmas. It's quite normal for sailors to have someone from a seaman's mission to stop by. Nevertheless, we were able to surprise them with a present. A greeting from land on board: a prepaid sim card that allows you to use the Internet or make phone calls. Messenger services are being used more and more like on land. That's how sailor families hear and see each other at Christmas.

We would like to thank all the many donors who made it possible for us to give away 524 Sim cards. The Amsterdam station distributed 620 gifts.

This is what Santa Claus is doing through the summer!21 06 11

The question of Santa Claus in the summer always concerned some people. Answers were available - they fill books.

We bring sailors to Christmas gifts and are therefore their "Santa Claus". And to us, every year at the beautiful summer time, the question arises: What will we do this year as a gift for seafarers who are Christmas on sea? They can not use phone cards there - so we need something different. We ask colleagues - look what others have done in previous years. Browse in catalogs. It is not easy to start planning christmas things with a summer cocktail. And quite honestly, the right thing has not crossed our mind yet. Do you have an idea?
