The best Father's Day

It's coming again: Father's Day. Still looking for inspiration? With our tips, Father's Day is guaranteed to be a success!

1. BBQ in the woods

It’ll be easy to put him right in his element – the grills in De Dennen can be used for free (but don’t forget to stop by Moormann & De Boer butchers first for some delicious meat sourced from Texel itself).

2. Aviation & War Museum

Texel was the last European battlefield at the close of World War II. You can learn about the relatively unknown Georgian Uprising, as well as Texel’s history in aviation, at the Aviation & War Museum at the airport. Don’t forget to put your skills to the test in the flight simulator!

3. Action!

Is your father secretly a daredevil at heart? He can live out his dreams on the beaches of Texel: kite surfing, blokarting, power kiting... Who’s up for the challenge?

4. Taste beer brewed on Texel

Refreshing: a tour and tasting of Texel-brewed beer at the multi-award-winning Texelse Bierbrouwerij. A gift like that is sure to please dad!

5. Bird safari

On Texel you can also go on a genuine bird safari with bird guide Klaas de Jong. During the safari, Klaas will tell you everything you want to know about the unique bird species on the island.
