Herring Eater at Sunset
This herring eater statue is located at the Scheveningen beach. It portraits perfectly how the Dutch like to eat their herring: Raw and after the grates have been taken out the tail is left on and then they grab the herring by the tail and let it glide into their mouths. Just to remember summer seems over.
Your guests come and go via the frontdoor. The Frontdoor of this hotel has etched in its glass that its telephone number is 1. The door must be from somewhere around 1900. Many guests must have passed this door.
This was a hotel long before there were hotel chains like Marriott, Hilton or Starwoord….
The hotel is stil in operation and located in a small village in The Netherlands, not far, only a busride, from Amsterdam. Are you able to guess its location?
Actually it was rebuilt in 1905 and the telephone was installed as late as 1920…
