Artists Corien Groenendijk and Helene Draaijers exhibit in the Strender Vermaning in Oosterend in May and June. Ukraine plays a role in the exhibition. Corien wrote a poem about the horrors of the war in Ukraine. It was the inspiration for two works, both of which call for a different attitude on the part of Putin and Russia, a call to end the war and all suffering and a commitment to peace. Both works hang on the top floor of the Vermaning. The rest of the works are inspired by the sea and the Texel landscape. A large part of the proceeds from the exhibition will go to the reception of refugees from Ukraine. Opening hours: in May and June, Tuesday to Saturday, from 1.30 pm - 4 pm.

This Mennonite church is located on the edge of the center of Den Burg. The church dates from the 18th century and was originally built as a shelter church. Every Sunday the service of the Baptist congregation takes place in this church. History From about 1530 there were Mennonites on Texel. In 1742 Den Burg had two Mennonite churches, namely a Frisian one on the Kogerstraat and a Flemish-Waterland one on the Nieuwstraat; the latter was sold in 1772. In 1882 the church was expanded, with the foundation stone being laid by Herman Bakels on July 15 of that year. Monument In 1976 the church was included in the register of monuments as a national monument.
