VOC Texel

The Dutch East India Company (VOC), which operated from 1602 to 1799, was the first real multinational. The VOC had a major impact on Texel’s development and history, both on the island in general and more specifically on the origins of the village of Oudeschild. In the era of the VOC, the “Rede” (roadstead) of Texel was an important “stopover”, particularly for the northern VOC towns, before the ships actually sailed East.
