Our houses on the Island – a journey in time & room

The houses on Nidingen were built from 1832 until 1930 for the lighthouse staff with families.
All the houses, which were listed early, are owned and managed by the State Property Department. Gottskär Hotel rents most of the areas and made them suitable spaces for lodging, meetings and socializing.

It offers self-catering accommodation in refurbished bedrooms and equipped kitchens.
In two of the houses there are “night-toilets”. The Island’s well-kept “toiletry” is the primary toilet. A shower is available for those who need it.
The accomodation is divided into four houses and in total we have 20 beds.
