Voetsporen VOC VOC Maquette

Hiking trail In the footsteps of the VOC

A walk full of history, that's what you get. You pass Fort De Schans, this fort was built to protect Texel from the Spaniards. Today, Natuurmonumenten is the owner of this fort. You can walk there freely and learn all about Texel's history!

We have mapped out a 5.1-kilometre walking route that allows you to enjoy the landscape to the full. Dogs are welcome on this route (on a leash).

  • Length: approx. 5.1 km
  • Estimated time: 70 minutes
  • Pram and wheelchair: not suitable
  • Dogs: allowed, on a lead near meadows
  • Accessible: all year round
  • Tip: boots may be required

A GPX file can be used on the phone with apps such as Komoot, Garmin Connect and Strava.
