    Walking excursion: In the footsteps of Pieter Kikkert

    Saturday, June 15, 2019

    Writer Lodewijk Dros and Ecomare offer a unique walk that follows part of the path that Pieter Kikkert walked on Texel in 1791. Pieter Kikkert was the first writer to view Texel with a romantic eye. He advised his readers to abandon all hurried and hurried. Rather go for a walk and think calmly, was his motto. Lodewijk Dros received a travelogue from this Kikkert, which inspired him to write the book "Island in the Mist." The 15 km walk takes you over the old peninsula of Eierland.

    At the starting point, Lodewijk Dros gives a brief explanation of the route and tips for hiking in his 18th century. Pierre Bonnet accompanies the walkers during the hike and connects the landscape of today with the descriptions of Kikkert. Duration 4 hours.

    Where: start and end point at De Krim holiday park.
    Time: 10 am - 2 pm.
    Costs: € 19.50 per person.

    You can book this excursion at the Ecomare desk or via the website: www.ecomare.nl/plan/excursies
