Lamb walk on the Hoge Berg

Are you coming to see the lambs on the Hoge Berg? In the spring you can see them running around and jumping everywhere. Sheep have been grazing for centuries in the ancient, rolling icon landscape of the Hoge Berg. You can see that in the sheep fines and the many garden walls. The lamb walk also takes you past 't Doolhof forest and De Zandkuil insect reserve. Do you want to see more? The walk can easily be extended to the Georgian cemetery, the Wezenputten, and/or the Brakestein country estate. The Bakker family maintains the landscape on the Hoge Berg and works in a nature-inclusive way and as circular as possible. On the way (or at home) you can enjoy the piece of sheep cheese and sausage that you get from sheep farm De Waddel. The walk is 3.3 km and takes you mostly on unpaved paths. Boots or sturdy shoes are recommended. You will receive a route booklet with information about the area and De Waddel. There is also a longer route. Times: you can book the walk from 11 am on Monday to Saturday. Costs: € 12.50 per group (from 1 to 6 people). Please note: you book 1 ticket for the entire group! Would you rather have a lunch with farm products for the road? Do you want to come with more people? Send a message to Marjon Bakker to inquire about the possibilities: +31628108651. You can also contact her with questions. Tickets are available, click on 'View times' to book or visit the Texel Tourist Office.
