Corona measures on Texel

Autumn is more fun on Texel

15 August 2019

Clear your head with a long walk along the beach, hunt for mushrooms in the woods, let beer & blues warm you up or look for rare migrating birds: you can enjoy the best of autumn on Texel.

Seven tips for an autumn trip to Texel

  1. At the Wind Festival Texel, held on 30 September and 1 October, the sky will be filled with all sorts of kites, some plain and simple and others intricate and beautiful. There will also be spectacular surfing and kite-surfing demonstrations on the beach. 
  2. Nights on Texel are really very dark! During the Nacht van de Nacht (Night of the Night), on 28 October, you can go stargazing at the observatory or go on a night excursion.
  3. Autumn’s golden combination: raw blues music and stormy Texel bock beer. Enjoy both at TexelBlues on 13, 14 and 15 October.
  4. Of all the migrating birds that pass through in the Netherlands, most stop off at Texel, including some very rare species. The Dutch Birding Vogelweekend Texel, from 13 to 15 October offers a range of bird excursions and lectures.
  5. Why not go on a mushroom excursion with an expert? There’s a whole world (of mushrooms) at your feet!
  6. Feeling the cold and the wet? Woolness is Texel’s answer to wellness: they’ll wrap you up in sheep’s wool. It’s soothing and warm for both body and soul.
  7. Autumn is the perfect time for long walks on the beach. Many of the beach cafés are open all through the autumn and winter. Toast your toes around the fireplace while you sip hot chocolate or a Juttertje.
