Explore Texel with the children this autumn

21 September 2018

Are you and the family visiting Texel this autumn? Would you like to feel the wind in your hair as you walk along the beach, hunt for mushrooms in the woods or visit some of Texel’s museums? We have listed the most exciting excursions for you here!

The best autumtips for children

Stargazing at the observatory
Come and admire the night sky on Texel! On the island, the nights are really dark so the stars are even more fascinating! In the autumn, the observatory at Ecomare regularly holds observing evenings. Please put your name to ensure a place.

Flora, the beach-combing and shipwreck museum
Come exploring at Flora! A thrilling treasure hunt leads you through all the wonderful washed-up curiosities. In the autumn holidays, this museum hosts special days for children featuring face-painting and games — you can even create your own work of art with booty from the beach!

To the top of the lighthouse
Why not take a walk along the wide expanses of beach and feel the wind in your hair, then climb all the stairs of the lighthouse at Texel’s most northerly point? Once you’ve reached the top, you will have the most wonderful views across the North Sea, Vlieland, the Wadden Sea and of Texel itself. If the weather’s not very clear, you’ll find there’s plenty to see inside the lighthouse too!

Indoor playground
De Krim Holiday Park features Texel’s largest indoor playground, with trampolines, climbing frames, jungle gyms and slides. This children’s playtime paradise is suitable for kids aged 2 -12.

Visit Ecomare
The season is not actually important for a trip to Ecomare, where you can watch seals, porpoises and all sorts of other marine animals at any time of year. There’s a new exhibition too: Wadden City, which is great fun for kids. The tiny shops in this city offer all sorts of things to do and discover. Ecomare is celebrating the autumn holidays by putting the frighteners on: try our scary treasure hunt and take a peek at our creepy lab.

Museum Kaap Skil
Inside and out, Kaap Skil is guaranteed to entertain the whole family! This museum with a focus on beach-combers and mariners has a children’s treasure hunt; the current exhibition “Trui aan, trossen los” (Sweater on, anchors away) is well worth a visit too. Kaap Skil’s autumn-holiday programme is brimming with stories and demonstrations. Children can get to work sewing a ship’s flag, create art from sacking and craft knot-work.
