Texel

Historic village of Den Hoorn

When you book a room at Hotel Op Diek, you’ll be staying on the southernmost tip of Texel. You’ll naturally want to get in a day at the beach. Just a ten-minute bike ride and you’re there. The rugged dune landscape holds many ‘hidden’ historic treasures. The large tide markers show where the island’s boundary used to be. You’ll see them here and there as you stroll along crushed-shell paths and sandy tracks. We know from experience that you can walk here without meeting a living soul. Except for a herd of grazing Highlanders, that is. They consider themselves the lord and master of these dunes, so be sure to give them a wide berth! Keep your eye on the horizon and, with a little luck, you’ll see a pair of wild horses.

 

Another remarkable sight: the WWII bunker near Pole 9. Walk down into the dark corridor and then scan the dunes through the wide spyhole. The Germans built this structure to give them a place to spot the enemy well in advance. A bit closer to home – in the Whaler’s House (Walvisvaarders Huisje) on the Herenstraat – you’ll be transported back in time. Behind a stately façade, you’ll discover an authentic 18th-century interior. Creaking floors, a tiled chimney breast: it’s all there! The current owners still sleep in the box bed. Nearly every aspect remains original, meaning a TV, computer or induction hob is out of the question. You can have a look for yourself at scheduled times.

Already explored the beach, dunes and Den Hoorn? Time for adventure! Texel has plenty of options to choose from. 

  • Nature excursions
  • Golf course
  • Live theatre
  • Charming shop-lined streets
  • Mueseums
  • Chances to see local craftspeople at work
  • And much more...
