Library 'Or'

The Library 'Or' is situated in the beautiful lobby, located directly by the entrance to the hotel.

The Library 'Or' has a rich collection of books about local culture, architecture and French savoir-faire.

    The legend of the Flying Dutchman (de Vliegende Hollander) concerns a ghost ship that can never make port, doomed to sail the oceans forever. Captain Willem van der Decken lived in Terneuzen and was known as a brave man. Around the year 1676 his ship disappeared on one of his voyages. En route to the Indies, a violent storm occurred near the Cape of Good Hope. Instead of waiting out the storm, the captain proceeded with his journey, against the wishes of the weather gods. Since then, he is doomed to sail forever and to this day the story of the ship 'that flies over the waves' is told by sailors all over the world.
