Saint Nicholas' island

17 November 2017

This Saturday, Saint Nicholas and his helpers arrive at the port of Oudeschild. Time to look forward to ginger nuts, a great atmosphere and presents in your shoe.

Saint Nicholas' island

Did you know that Texel is also known as Saint Nicholas' island? That's because he arrives here by steamboat, via the port of Oudeschild, every year. He can always rely on a warm welcome from Texel's younger residents, who all come down to the quay to see him and his helpers. Then, laden down with handfuls of ginger nuts and sweets, everyone sets off into Den Burg, where the festive procession starts. This year, Saint Nicholas is set to arrive at 12.30 hours on Saturday 18 November.

The gift-wrap service offered by the Texel tourist information office

This year, Saint Nicholas has called on his helpers to help out at the Texel tourist information office: which means that all webshop orders placed between 19 November and 1 December will be delivered in festive gift wrap. We are sure that you won't be disappointed by the large range of original gifts our webshop has to offer.

Are you still looking for a great Saint Nicholas gift? Look no further; our webshop has something for everyone.
