Ascension Day on Texel

Ascension Day is always on a Thursday, 10 days before Whitsun and it is an official public holiday in the Netherlands and Belgium. On this day, Christians celebrate Jesus’ ascension to God, 39 days after rising from the dead.

Dauwtrappen in the spring

In the “olden days”, on Ascension Day, people would rise at three o’clock in the morning to go dancing and singing barefoot in the grass. This dauwtrappen or “dew-treading” is a very ancient custom. They believed that the dew on the grass had a purifying effect.
Even if you are not an early riser, a trip to Texel around Ascension Day would make for a wonderful holiday. The temperatures are already rising and Texel’s natural beauty is about to come into its own.
In 2018, Ascension Day is on Thursday 10 May.
Through VVV Texel, you can find the most delightful holiday cottages, hotels, bed & breakfast accommodation and campsites. A trip to Texel for Ascension Day promises to be lovely!
