Hosts Hotel Achterdiek

Our hosts

The hosts of Hotel Achterdiek are Gaby and Stefan Danzer. They have taken over the life's work of the Koßmann family, who fulfilled a great dream with the hotel in 1978. As Hotel Classen, they lovingly ran the house and constantly expanded it with new rooms and holiday flats. After the 35th anniversary, the Danzer couple took over the house and continue the life's work with their own ideas and visions.

You can hear more about the hosts and the hotel in the podcast Klönschnack of the Romantik Hotel Achterdiek on Spotify

Culinary delights for every palate

The 3 most beautiful words in the world? Dinner is ready! Indulgence is writ large at Danzer's feines Achter'n Diek. The house combines East Frisian hospitality with personal service and creative slow-food cuisine. In the kitchen of the house, chef Stefan Danzer and his crew spoil guests with seasonal delicacies, which they interpret in a modern way with Mediterranean accents.

Coconut slices
Fine gastronomy

Those who would like to enjoy the food from the Achterdiek in their own homes have the opportunity to do so with "Danzer's fine cuisine for home". The staff reveal how everything is prepared in the in-house cookbook. In the "53Grad Nord", the bar of the house, the typical East Frisian ambience ensures a nice end to every day. And all this with fresh and specially created cocktails, selected whiskeys and fine fruit brandies.

On the old dike
The connoisseur meeting place

The cuisine at Romantik Hotel Achterdiek is always given special attention. For example, host and chef Stefan Danzer, has successfully completed the " Kitchen Master" and also the further training to become a "Wellness Vital Chef".

An opulent East Frisian breakfast buffet awaits you every morning. As part of the pampering pension, we serve you a piece of homemade cake in the afternoon and a 4-course choice menu of the finest in the evening. When booking, please decide whether you would like to enjoy the pampering board or bed and breakfast.

Sustainability Sustainability

Wadden Sea Juist
"Wadden Sea National Park" for sustainable tourism

The UNESCO Wadden Sea World Heritage Site is right on our doorstep. Rare plant species such as moss bells and marsh heartleaf grow in this globally unique natural landscape with salt marshes, sand dunes, dune islands and mudflats. It is the nursery of our North Sea fish and the habitat of thousands of birds and numerous seals. Those who are surrounded by so much beautiful nature are also shaped by nature. We feel obliged to protect and develop our natural and cultural heritage. Sustainable management and responsible use of natural resources are therefore a matter of course for us at the Achterdiek. Juist is one of the first tourist destinations in Germany to be certified by the international Green Globe sustainability seal. We have been supporting sustainable projects in our community for years and complement them with our own activities.

Slow Food

They prefer to use local products for their innovative creations and regional specialities. As a member of Slow Food Deutschland e.V. they know that enjoyment and responsibility belong together. Thus, value is placed on responsible agriculture, species-appropriate livestock farming, traditional food craftsmanship and the preservation of regional flavour diversity.

Around the hotel

Wadden Sea off the island of Juist
Mudflat walk

The UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea is on the doorstep of Romantik Hotel Achterdiek - which means: behind the dike. On a hike you can observe lugworms, snails and crabs on the seabed. All you hear is the wind, the crackling of the silt and the calls of the birds. Discover the seabed on a guided walk through the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site. The Nationalpark Haus Juist offers mudflat walks, bird observation and other natural history tours for young and old.
