Where do you celebrate the Christmas holiday?

To Texel in the Christmas holidays

We give you 6 good reasons

The end of the year is approaching and before we know it, the Christmas holidays will be upon us. Haven't made any plans yet? Then quickly read our 6 reasons for a wonderful Christmas break on Texel! Are you also coming to enjoy a week, weekend or number of days on the island during the Christmas holidays?

1. Cosy up with family and friends 

Spend a few days in the Christmas holidays with friends and family. There is enough room for everyone in our holiday homes and villas for 8, 10, 16 or even 20 people. Cosy cooking together in the fully equipped kitchen, good food at the long dining tables, unlimited chatting and, of course, doing fun things! That sounds magical, doesn't it?

2. Christmas holidays boring?       

Recognisable for many people: It's Christmas holidays and the kids say, "We're bored!". At Holiday Park De Krim, you will find everything for a bit of action. Dive into the heated indoor pool, go down the wild water rapids as fast as you can or challenge each other in the game hall for a game of laser tag or miniature golf. In the second week of the Christmas holidays, there is even a cool assault course in the event hall at the park. 

3. Christmas markets & winter markets 

Christmas markets and winter markets are also becoming increasingly popular in the Netherlands. Texel hosts several atmospheric markets during the Christmas holidays. Browse the stalls, enjoy delicious food and drinks, the cosy music and the fire baskets to warm up in the cold weather. The winter fair on 29 and 30 December will be organised at Evenementenhal Texel, so good weather is guaranteed.

4. Christmas breakfasts and dinners at catering establishments

When you think of Christmas, besides the cosy lights, the decorated Christmas tree and being together, you also think of good food. Treat yourself to a relaxed and carefree Christmas this year. Don't spend hours in the kitchen, eat out! Book a table in one of our restaurants. From an extensive 4-course dinner to an evening of stone grilling or a pancake buffet. Prefer gourmet dining in your cottage? Then order a complete gourmet package. 

5. Experience nature 

On Texel, a visit to the forest, the dunes or the beach is part of the fun, of course! Walking alone a bit boring? Then look for Sommeltjes on the Sommeltjespad. If the children are older, it is fun to make an escapetour across the island or take a challenging trip on the MTB.

6. Cosy evenings out 

During the long, dark evenings, a night out is a good idea! Take part in one of the bingo evenings or test your knowledge during De Krim End-of-year quiz. You are very welcome, even if you are not staying at De Krim Holiday Park.
