Ulrike Grafberger

Having grown up among vineyards and beer gardens, this native of Franconia first went to Italy, then to Hamburg and later to Holland. She has been living and working for nine years in the Scheveningen district of The Hague. From there she regularly reports on Scheveningen, The Hague and the rest of Holland on her website and in her blog Unter'm Meeresspiegel. She travels through Holland for the Dutch Tourist Office & Convention Bureau, visiting events and blogging about them on She also moderates the German Facebook and Twitter channels.

When she’s not actually on the road, she’s writing and proofreading books. In between times, she tries to take her 14-year-old son with her into the museum (usually without success, to quote: I like going to a museum when there’s no art there). And what else? She loves the sea, photography and writing, art and architecture and a Dutchman. What she likes most is bringing everything together, for instance as a Holland blogger.
