Shipwreck and Beachcombing Museum Flora

Reviewed By RHAHJ - Nijmegen, The Netherlands

This museum exhibits highlights of many years of combing the Beaches. Items include boats and boat parts, parts of planes which crashed in WWII, barrel contents rusted together. There's a huge bottle collection. There was a story about a ship getting in a hurricane. Although it is amazing what one can find on the Beaches, it is still not as exciting as a good archeological collection.

TESO Koninklijke Texels Eigen Stoomboot Onderneming

Reviewed By CarolienBAC - Leuven, Belgium

We booked online tickets for the ferry to travel to Texel and back. I was pleasantly surprised by how modern and accommodating the ferry was. The Seating area is comfortable, the self service restaurant is very clean and offers a nice selections of drinks and foods. You can also buy some souvenirs and there are folders available to prepare your stay at Texel. The toilets are very clean.
There is a digital playing area for the children, which was greeted with enthusiasm by the five children we were traveling with. But the best experience of all is of course the trip itself. The view on the surrounding sea, the sea gulls and the island of Texel approaching. Too bad the trip only takes about fifteen minutes.

A recently ( 2013 ) opened surf school on the beach of de Koog. teachers with an academic background in economy, what more could you ask for? Subsequently, fair prices!
Our sons liked the lessons and the instructors very much and would gladly have gone every day of their two week holiday. We shall certainly be returning next year.

Jan Plezier Huifkartochten Texel

Reviewed By Anne B - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

We did one of the morning carriage rides and had a fantastic time. This is a must do when on the island for a few days and a great and natural way to see one of the most beautiful parts of Texel.
The staff was great and very friendly, the guide super knowledgable and with great humor! We learnt so much about the island on the way. One of us was in an electric wheelchair and the carriage is very well equipped to accommodate wheelchairs which is great. Just make sure to let the crew know when you book the trip and they will be ready to assist when you arrive.
International travelers, the narrative was in Dutch and not sure if they offer additional languages so that may be a bit of a challenge. You will undoubtedly enjoy the carriage ride, nature and Dutch hospitality though!

Nationaal Park Duinen van Texel

Reviewed By RWBZ - Chicago

We rented a bike for about 6 hours and had a wonderful afternoon, stopping near the lighthouse for hot chocolate and to warm up our toes. It was hovering near 2-3 degrees during our stay and while riding the bike kept us warm, knowing we had a couple of options to stop - even on a quiet winter Sunday - made all the difference. Would definitely recommend a winter trip to Texel to see the dunes if you are lucky enough to get a dry, non-windy weekend like we had.

We decided to take scooters to explore the island before we arrived on Texel. Sheep Angels looked very promising and now I can say that the reality was even above our expectations.

Ecomare

Reviewed By CarolienBAC - Leuven, Belgium

Tripadvisor ranks Ecomare as the top attraction to visit at Texel and I couldn't agree more with this top position. Ecomare is a center where wounded seals and porpoises are treated and after their recovery are released back into the wild. But the center is much more than this, it is an ideal place to learn more about these magnificent animals and the beautiful island of Texel. They also have a nice self service restaurant where you can enjoy some snacks and drinks. I really liked their pea soup!
Ecomare is an ideal place to spend an afternoon for young and old. Don't miss out on this one.

Cultuurhistorisch Museum Texel

Reviewed By Arlabob - Washington DC, District of Columbia

While we were on the Dutch barrier island of Texel, we thought we'd at least take a look at the local history museum. Often these places are a mishmash of local artifacts without much context. But we were very pleasantly surprised at the cultural history museum on Texel. It's not a slick professionally-groomed place, but also far more than a "just a collection of stuff." A homespun happy middle ground that provided context about the rural life on Texel a hundred years ago, particularly through videos. We spent much more time there than we had planned.

Landgoed de Bonte Belevenis

Reviewed By Regine v

If you're on Texel with a family, this is a must see, although it is a little bit expensive.
Unfortunally we were in the May holiday which ment it was really busy but for €6 entree fee and €8,50 for crafts workshops you can stay the whole day in this farm. Children can make their own candles, soap, paper or bread and when it is backing or drying they can play in the playground.
The parents can relax in de sun and have a tour in the Brewery or drinking tea.
So this is worth the trip!

Reviewed By MadridJosefina - Germany

De Hervormde Kerk van Den Bur Texel uit 1452, es una preciosa iglesia ubicada en el centro de Den Burg. Se podría decir que es uno de sus principales atractivos turísticos.
Hay algunas pequeñas y encantadoras Iglesias, que se pueden visitar en la Isla de Texel y ésta es una de ellas.
Es una iglesia robusta, con una decoración sencilla.
Interesante de ver y/o visitar en la Isla deTexel.
