A Love for the North


In the mid-1970s, the Lüders family from Hamburg bought a thatched house in St. Peter-Ording as a holiday and weekend home. The family loved the beautiful countryside, the healthy North Sea air, the endless beach, and the proximity to the Hanseatic city of Hamburg. To share his love of the area with other visitors, Werner Lüders bought a plot of land and opened a hotel in 1986. His daughter, Claudia Gerlach, took over the hotel at the end of 2010.

A Love for the AALERNHÜS


During extensive renovations, Claudia Gerlach renamed her father's hotel AALERNHÜS, which means 'parents' house' in the Frisian dialect and reflects part of the hotel's history as well as its cosy atmosphere.

Even on my first visit, I was impressed by the Eiderstedt peninsula, St. Peter-Ording and especially the Aalernhüs, and I immediately felt at home. If you love the North Sea and its landscape, you'll keep coming back.
