Public transport on Texel

On Texel (and to the boat) you travel with the Texelhopper. Two bus lines run according to a fixed timetable. Small buses take you to 130 pick-up points, spread all over the island.

Advance reservation is necessary.

Parking on Texel

Put an end to that annoying parking ticket! With the Texel e-Vignet you buy a one-time digital parking card that is valid for your entire stay. And that from home.

Rent a bike

You go cycling on Texel! From the Den Hoorn winding paths lead through the forest, dunes and towards the sea.

You can rent bicycles at Vermeulen Bikes from Den Hoorn. Book in time in the summer and the bikes will be ready for you. There are also electric bicycles for rent.

Strandpaviljoen paal 9
Beach pavilion paal 9

The beach of Paal 9 is nearby. Enjoy playing volleyball or flying a kite on the beach. That's what makes a trip to Texel so special!
Also blow into the pavilion. Sandy boots or large groups? They are used to it at Paal 9. You can also rent the beach room for a BBQ or buffet.

Spar Supermarket

The Spar Supermarket is within walking distance in the heart of Den Hoorn. A complete range, with many fresh and local products. You park in front of the door; that's practically smashing! Take a drive in the morning for oven-fresh bread rolls. Tip: bring Texel products for those who stay at home or Texel lamb from the traditional butcher's shop.

The Colorful Experience Be

Against the dunes, lies a 'do-and-experience' paradise. You can make soap, candles, beer and liqueurs there.

Bake bread or eat homemade cake in the tea garden. What else you will encounter: playground equipment, go-karts, goats, peacocks and… experience it for yourself!

Zwaaiende Zeehond

When you are on Texel, you naturally want to see seals. In Ecomare you can do this from very close by, thanks to the seal sanctuary that is located here.

And Ecomare has much more to offer, so much that you can spend a fun and interesting day out with the whole family.

Stichting Texels Museum

The fact that Texel has an interesting past can be seen everywhere on the island. From the boulders on the beach to the bullet holes in the lighthouse, they all raise questions. The people of Texel like to talk about it in the museums on the island. Enjoy – even if the weather is not so nice on a day – of beautiful stories about seals, beachcombing and seafaring life.
