Texel is the largest and most versatile of the Dutch Wadden Islands. Almost all landscapes can be found on this island. Texel has polders and dunes, mudflats, the North Sea, heathland, beach and forests. What else do you want?

Through the woods
Most of the Texel forest was planted in the period between 1898 and 1921. It was a uniform forest: large areas of planted conifers of the same species and age. Forest policy has changed over the years. The goal is a varied forest full of trees, shrubs and plants that naturally belong to the Netherlands and that have different ages. You will also find the Waalenburgerdijkje on Texel. It was the sea dike for the polders in the Kogerveld and the Burgernieuwland. Due to the embankment of the salt marsh of Waal and Burg, it became an inner dike.
On this route you can take a look at Ecomare, the center for the Wadden Sea and the North Sea. This center was founded in 1929 and in 1975 it moved to the dunes near De Koog. Here you will find, among other things, a nature museum, an aquarium, a seal and bird sanctuary and a dune park. From here you can follow all kinds of excursions about Texel.
