The village of Midsland is situated in the heart of Terschelling. In this village, you will find many nice shops and attractive restaurants with terraces, where you can spend days during summertime. Midsland used to be the administrative centre of Terschelling, but at a certain point the island was divided into two different municipalities: West-Terschelling and East-Terschelling. From that time on, Midsland has functioned as the administrative centre of East-Terschelling.
Originally, Midsland was a farming village and cattle breeding was the most important source of revenue to the islanders. Nowadays, tourism forms the most important source of revenue. The village of Midsland offers multiple conveniences to its tourists, such as bars, a disco/nightclub, and many restaurants.
