What to do on Texel at Easter?

17 February 2020

On Texel, at Easter, the meadows will be full of bouncy lambs and most trees and plants will be covered in buds. Easter is a wonderful time to holiday on Texel!

Visit Texel at Easter!

You can go for a walk in the country, hunt for Easter eggs among the dunes or take a bike ride to see the island’s famous lambs. Spring on Texel is spring in its full glory.

Lambs on Texel

The Little Lambs Bike Trail guides you to some of Texel’s most beautiful spots, where the meadows are filled with lambs. If you think lambs are lovely, you could cuddle them: well, here’s your chance. At Texel Sheep Farm, lambs are born in almost every month of the year. 

On Easter Monday, walking club Het Gouden Boltje organises the Little Lamb Walk, a route leading you past meadows full of lambs, schapenboeten (characteristic wooden sheds for hay) and tuinwallen (a traditional form of fencing made from sods of grass).

Easter markets

Enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the Durper Spring Market in De Cocksdorp on the Saturday before Easter, where you will find stalls selling all sorts of things, and a range of entertainment. If you like rummaging around for second-hand bargains, visit the Car Boot Sale in De Koog on Easter Monday.

Go on a wildlife excursion! 

Our tip for a spring getaway: visit the natural wildlife area of De Geul to see the largest colony of spoonbills in the Netherlands. You can book the excursion “Breeding area birds De Geul” via Ecomare. Or go on an excursion in nature reserve De Schorren and walk across the mudflats and through the creeks.

Visit a museum

Why not visit one of Texel’s museums? Go back in time at Museum Waelstee or learn more about the history of aviation on Texel at the Aviation and War Museum.
