Texel is a wonderful destination in the autumn too! The Texel woodland is bursting with colour and dozens of fungi. And who doesn’t like a long beach walk followed by a hot cup of tea or chocolate at a beach pavilion? 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 ...
Also in autumn there is enough to do on Texel!
*These activities take place on Holiday Park De Krim
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.
There is lots to do on Texel during the autumn school holidays. For instance, Ecomare organises stargazing evenings, you can go on a fungi excursion, several autumn markets are held and there are all kinds of activities during the ‘Nacht van de Nacht’ night sky event. Find out more below:
