When the days start to get shorter, you know Autumn is coming. Along with shorter days, nature's changing colours make Autumn a special time of year. Green gives way to gorgeous shades of red and yellow. The ever-changing landscape of Texel is an excellent choice for tranquil Autumn walks under the late summer sun. At other times, the weather suddenly becomes stormy and the sea crashes against the dunes. That's a great time for long walks along the beach where you literally get blown away.
When you walk through Texel's woods in Autumn, you will see how vibrant green is making way for vivid shades of red and yellow. This creates a stunning pallette of colour. It's not just the trees that are changing in colour. There's much more going on in nature. Many fruits and seeds are geminating in this season. And, of course, this is the time of year when the mushrooms actually pop out of the ground
With the coming of Autumn, we have fewer warm days. Periods of sunshine alternate with more unsettled weather. It rains more, and the winds pick up. But this is also a wonderful experience on Texel! The winds blow with stronger force in Autumn than in Spring. This whips up the waves and the sea gets rough. Whitecaps appear and the waves crash against the quay of Oudeschild. What a spectacular sight!
There is always plenty to do and to see on Texel in Autumn. Why not take a walk with a real birdwatcher and maybe awake the bird lover in you? Or did you ever want to find out more about mushrooms? Then sign up for a mushroom walk from Ecomare. If you'd like to know more about Texel's Duinen National Park, go on a guided walk of the Slufter and find out all about life on these tidal marshes.
