Spring on Texel

After a long winter, you'll probably want to get out into the country as new buds appear and enjoy the first rays of warm sun: a good walk along the beach, looking around the friendly shops or a brisk bike ride through the dunes. You will discover what spring really means on Texel.

Celebrate spring on Texel

Lambs frisking in the meadows and colourful bulb fields - new life has arrived. It's spring again. Come and enjoy the pleasant spring sunshine on Texel.

Little Lambs on Texel

The Little Lambs trail will lead you to the loveliest places on the island where you will see meadows dotted with lambs. Have you ever felt the need to cuddle a lamb's fluffiness? Well you can do just that from the end of February onwards at Schapenboerderij Texel, just outside Den Burg. At the farm, lambs are born daily and you will learn more about the breed of Texel sheep.

The Bulb-Field Bike trail

We can really recommend a bike ride through the bulb fields of Texel in the springtime. The Texel bulb growers have set out two trails through the loveliest acres of bulbs in bloom: one in the south and one in the north. The trails are best from April to about mid-May. Check out the cycle routes

The largest colony of spoonbills in the Netherlands

An important symbol of Texel's wildlife is the spoonbill. In De Geul wildlife area, you can see the largest colony of spoonbills in the Netherlands, which reside here from early spring to summer. These elegant white birds feel very at home here because their largest predator, the fox, does not live on the island. You can book excursions to De Geul through Ecomare.

A Texel tradition: the meierblis

Every year on 30 April, celebratory bonfires are lit all over Texel. These meierblissen now part of Texel's cultural heritage, were once intended to drive out the winter spirits. You are cordially invited to watch one of the large village bonfires, but don't be afraid if your face is painted black by one of the Texel residents - it's all part of the tradition.
