Corona measures on Texel

Come to Texel for Whitsun

5 March 2020

Cuddling lambs, relaxing on a wagon ride or celebrating the arrival of spring around the Meierblis bonfires: there's no end of things to do on Texel at Whitsun. 

Experience Whitsun on Texel

There's always a reason to travel to Texel, but no better reason than Whitsun, because there's so much to do and experience on the island then:

Cuddling lambs

Thousands of lambs are born on Texel in the spring and you'll see them frolicking through the meadows everywhere. Anyone wanting to experience just how wonderful it is to hug a lamb for themselves should head along to the Texel Sheep Farm.

Heading off out into the nature

Head off out into the great outdoors with a Texel forester in the Whitsun holiday! Discover the De Schorren salt-marsh area, the De Slufter nature reserve or visit the Netherlands' biggest spoonbill colony in the Geul valley. For information about all of the island's nature trips, see the What's On part of our site.

Texel bonfires

The Meierblis takes place on Texel on 30 April every year; it's a ritual that's unique to the island and involves the lighting of bonfires everywhere on the island to celebrate the start of spring. Every village has its own public Meierblis event.

Specialty beer festival

The Specialty beer festival will be held in the park in Den Burg on 30 May until 1 June 2020. Come along and take your pick from the many beers on tap (more than 12) and enjoy live music too.

A relaxing wagon ride

You'll find that you don't have any trouble at all relaxing on a wagon ride across the beach and through the dunes. Sit back and watch the wonderful nature that Texel has to offer slowly passing by during a ride in the Jan Plezier or Kikkertsparadise
