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.

Every year in September our team changes. Then a new volunteer starts his ministry - to return to Germany after 12 months of many new experiences and begin his studies. We are grateful that every year a young person is willing to cooperate with us.

Hans Lennard Tiertz has just finished his first weeks with us. He will be present at the reception of the guesthouse as well as on board the ships.

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.
