Christmas on Texel: 5 tips for a romantic seasonal holiday

If you’re looking for somewhere special to be together this Christmas, where you can sample good food and wander through a wintry countryside, Texel is the place for you. Discover the romantic island life during the Christmas season.

1. Dine out at a dinner show

Enjoy a 3-course meal while watching this vibrant dinner show at Theater & Restaurant De Toegift @Klif 12, the Christmas show is a delicious evening with plenty of amusement between courses.

2. Visit the tiny churches of Texel

Most of the churches on the island are lovingly decorated for the festive season. Certainly, the church at Den Hoorn and the Seamen’s Church in Oudeschild are well worth a visit. The Seamen’s Church contains the famous copper chandeliers donated by renowned Dutch admiral, Michiel de Ruyter.

3. Songs around the Christmas tree

On Christmas Eve, the residents of De Koog and their guest will gather around the enormous Christmas tree on Dorpsplein to sing songs. Why not join in or just come and listen?

4. Blow away the cobwebs in the Texel countryside

Winter is the perfect season for wandering through our beautiful wintry countryside or for feeling the wind in your hair as you walk along the beach. It’s great to go out into Texel’s great outdoors and then enjoy a mug of hot chocolate in one of the beach cafés.

5. Christmas shopping

For a real sense of Christmas, you should visit one of our charming villages. The shops in bathing resort De Koog are opened every Sunday and there is a Shopping Sunday in Den Burg too. If you need to do a spot of last-minute shopping, why not have a look round?

Would you like to enjoy culinary delights during Christmas, discover the beautiful winter landscape and enjoy a romantic time together?

Then choose a matching romantic accommodation. These are still available now!
