The beautiful colours that spring brings make everyone happy. From April to half May, countless colourful tulips, daffodils and hyacinths grace the flower bulb fields on the island. All colours of the rainbow can be found in the fields. You can find most of the flower bulb fields in the south and the north of the island. We recommend stopping at the specially laid out flower picking garden of Lap on Rommelpot in Den Hoorn. Go out into the garden to make your own bouquet.
Later in spring, in June, millions of wild orchids grow on Texel. Wild orchids are rare in the rest of the Netherlands. You can find them in the nature reserves, but also by the roadside and in the Krimbos. You can see the eye-catching purple flowers of the Harlekijn and the Brede Orchis everywhere near the nature-friendly banks in the Krimbos. Other good places to spot this colourful Texel treasure are the nature meadows of the Roggesloot, the Muy and the dune valleys of the Horspolders.
