Vuurtoren Eiland is a unique piece of nature in its own city. In a rugged landscape, you will find roaming animals, rare flora, a dilapidated fortress, and Amsterdam's only lighthouse. Located in the Markermeer near Durgerdam, Vuurtoreneiland can only be reached by ship. In spring and summer people eat in the summer restaurant, a transparent glass greenhouse, sheltered from wind and rain, 'eating in and from nature’.
"In the colder months, we eat in the fort, and we seek intimacy and warmth, with a fire and a blanket. The table d'hôte menu consists of ±5 courses, and is prepared with regional products, old-fashioned craft techniques and open fire. Food with character and a special story."
Eating at Vuurtoreneiland is no ordinary night out in Amsterdam, but more of an adventurous mini-vacation. The island experience starts at the Lloyd Hotel from where we sail you with the historic 'IJveer XIII' across the IJ to Vuurtoreneiland. The boat trip there and back, including dinner, takes about 5 hours. On site there is ample opportunity to experience the island, nature and the fortress.
