Nacht van de Nacht on Texel

Texel still has real dark skies. This makes it a fantastic location for Nacht van de Nacht, a night sky event to raise light pollution awareness, which is yearly in October. On this night, there are lots of fun, special activities being organised on the island:

Lighthouse by night

Once a year, during the Night of the Night, the tower is open in the evening. From the Texel lighthouse, you can see the lighthouses of Den Helder, Vlieland and Terschelling, as well as the lights scattered across the horizon of ships at sea.

Night sky view from the church tower

The night sky view from the church tower in Den Burg is simply breathtaking. From the tower you have a special view of Den Burg at night and the starry sky.

Stargazing at the observatory

Come have a look through a telescope at the observatory next to Ecomare! In cloudy weather there is a planetarium show. More information via www.oriontexel.nl or call +31653340063. Free admission.
