Bird Information Centre Texel

The Bird Information Centre in De Cocksdorp is the place to find information on birdwatching on Texel. Throughout the year they organise several bird excursions every week. The Centre is also the place to buy new binoculars. Nowhere else will you find such a large selection, and you can try out all the models in the Centre's garden.
National Park Dunes of Texel

National Park Dunes of Texel

Nowhere else in the Netherlands will you find so much variation in landscapes in such a small area than on Texel. Wet dune valleys, dry dunes, forests, fields of heather and extraordinary wetlands; you find them all in National Park Dunes of Texel. A unique piece of Holland that we would love to share with you.
