Winter begins on 21 December, right before Christmas. A period that many people find particularly hectic. From 2 January, you can begin to catch your breath. And where better to restore your senses than in different surroundings from the everyday? Let everything go and get blown away! Texel is the perfect winter destination, and we are happy to tell you why.
Winter days on Texel often begin with beautiful glistening dew or frosted landscapes. The mysterious haze that hangs over the fields is a wonder to behold. This makes it necessary to get up early. That might be a bit harder if you had stayed up late the night before to gaze at the stars. In the Winter, the nights on Texel are pitch black, so star gazing is highly recommended. Naturally, you can do this from your own window or from the beach, but there are also special evenings at Texel's Volkssterrenwacht when you can see the stars from Ecomare's observatory. You will learning everything you need to know about the stars.
After the hectic holiday period of December, things return to peace and quiet in January and February. Exciting events give way to everyday life. If you like peacefulness and your own space, then Winter is the perfect time to visit Texel and experience what island life is really like. Visit the villages and take a wonderful Winter walk in stunning natural settings. Enjoy a pint of Texel's own brew in one of the beach pavillions. And tomorrow? You'll find out when the time comes. Do whatever you feel like doing.
Just because it's peaceful doesn't mean that there is nothing happening on Texel. In the winter months, you can also go on an excursion with the forest ranger to De Geul or Mokbaai. Are you a fan of skating? Then don't forget to bring you skates. When it freezes there's often skating on the marshes of nature area Den Burg. Does it look like it won't freeze, but skating is still at the top of your list of favourite winter activities? Lots of villages on Texel have skating rinks open in the winter. That means you can make sure you don't forget your technique.
