Or how about a birdwatching excursion to see the many migratory birds that are on Texel at this time of year? During the autumn school holidays, there are even more fun activities and events for the whole family to enjoy! Read our tips below ...  

Top autumn outings on Texel

Also in autumn there is enough to do on Texel!

*These activities take place on Holiday Park De Krim 

Migratory birds on Texel

Texel is extra popular with birdwatchers in the autumn. Whether to spot water birds, field birds or scrub birds. From blackcap and wigeon to redwing, greenfinch and huge flocks of sandpipers. Birdwatchers can sometimes spot up to 90 species in one weekend! And with a little luck, you may even see a knot, a bird that visits the Wadden Sea to fatten up so it can complete its journey around the world from polar circle to equator.

Naturally, there are several birdwatching excursions you can book at this time of year. For instance via Ecomare or Vogelinformatiecentrum.
