Corona measures on Texel

Activities for children

Texel is a paradise for children - there is fun to be had everywhere! They can go looking for hidden treasure on the beach or exploring in the Texel woods. Have your children already met the Sommeltjes? These mysterious creatures dance in the moonlight but perhaps you'll spot them if you explore the Sommeltjespad ....

There's so much for kids to do

Children love holidays on Texel: they can run wild in the country or on the beach and enjoy all the attractions and sights.

Watching seals

Even if the weather is bad, there is plenty to do on Texel. How about a trip to Ecomare, where you can meet the seals face-to-face or watch the porpoises play? The Water Hall has lots of challenges and fun facts about the Wadden Sea region and the North Sea. In the summer, there are extra activities for children. Another favourite is a trip on a shrimp cutter or on a cruise ship. Oudeschild has a range of options for boat trips.

Get creative

Children are encouraged to get creative and try crafting at Bonte Belevenis, where your children will learn how to bake bread rolls or make soap or candles. There is an outdoor area, with a playground, for picnics.

It's playtime

If the kids need to let off steam, why not take them climbing at Klimpark Texel in De Cocksdorp where they can scramble and clamber a few metres off the ground? The very young will have lots of fun at the indoor playground  Kinderspeelparadijs at De Krim Holiday Park. Midget golf courses are to be found at various locations on the island. De Koog has an indoor swimming pool and in the summer months, you can visit the outdoor baths Molenkoog in Den Burg.
