About Hotel Nige Hus

Hotel Nige Hus and Restaurant Zum Anker - Family Hospitality

The Griebel family has a long history on Neuwerk and has been deeply rooted on the island for generations. The Hotel Nige Hus is a project close to the heart of the family, which they run with great attention to detail and a sustainable approach. In addition to the unique location and the special atmosphere, the guests of the Nige Hus appreciate above all the warm hospitality of the Griebel family and their team. Whether at the cozy breakfast in the winter garden of the hotel or at the social gathering at the bar of the Anker – here you feel immediately welcome and at home.

The Griebel family has lived on Neuwerk since the 18th century and the Anker was opened in 1974. In the meantime, the restaurant has become an integral part of island life and it is hard to imagine life without it. Lüder and Anneliese Griebel had their hands full coping with the first difficult years and can now look proudly at what the former Anker has become.

During the winter months, when all the businesses on Neuwerk are closed, renovations, additions and conversions have been and continue to be carried out. This should answer one or two questions about what the islanders do in winter… But despite all the modernizations, the unique charm and history of the house have always been preserved. The second generation, Christian Griebel and his wife Svenja, came to the island in 1997 to join their parents’ business.

There was not enough space for three generations, so two guest rooms and two group rooms became the Nige Hus with double rooms, suites and an apartment for the young family with their two children. Together they managed the restaurant and the hotel and realized many new projects. From the idea to offer the guests something special and unique, Christian Griebel developed and built the Tüdelüt and a little later the Wattoase was added. He has been the owner since 2012, but can still count on the active support of his parents.

Christian Griebel is not only the owner of the Hotel Nige Hus, but also the island chairman of Neuwerk. Together with his wife Svenja and his family, he is committed to ensuring that Neuwerk remains a unique place worth living in in the future. This is also reflected in the philosophy of the family business. For example, regional products are preferred and energy is supplied by renewable energies. The rooms were also designed sustainably and furnished with ecological materials.

The Griebel family and the entire team of Hotel Nige Hus look forward to welcoming you to the island soon!

An elderly couple and we stayed at this hotel for 4 days. We also often ate delicious dishes in the restaurant. No matter what we ordered: the quality, the service and the price were very good. We can highly recommend the fish. All in all a very nice and courteous team. owner-managed. We found this to be the best compared to the other hotels. Our room 4 with a beach chair and a little more space was very clean, friendly, clean and spacious. Rich breakfast. Especially recommended: The different jams. We would love to come back and wish the Griebel family all the best!

Wie schon viele Jahre, waren wir mit einer Gruppe drei Tage auf Neuwerk bei Griebels. Und wie immer war es einfach traumhaft. Die liebevoll eingerichtetetn Zimmer, der kuschelige Gastraum mit dem Kamin, das supergute Essen und Trinken... Griebls und ihr Team kümmern sich liebevoll um uns von der Abholung am Sahlenburger Strand, bis sie uns dort wieder heil abgeliefert haben. Einfach nur empfehlenswert! Wir kommen nächstes Jahr ganz bestimmt wieder!
