Once upon a time

Situated in a quiet road close to the beach the hotel Niedersachsen is only a few meters away from the Friedrichstrasse in Westerland on the island Sylt, Germany.

In 1892 the house was built, and over the years it was altered and renovated several times. Since 1991 today’s owner Werner Scheidt leads the hotel and also has refurbished it. Founded in 1925 from the owner’s grandparents under the same name, the small hotel company this year celebrates its 90-year-old jubilee.
