Spend your holiday on Texel
Texel is the largest and most versatile Frisian island of the Netherlands. You reach the island in twenty minutes by ferry from Den Helder. Texel is famous for its landscape and large variety in natural beautiful areas. It is often called "Little Holland".
The island is charmingly beautiful in all seasons.Picturesque villages, woods and beaches that are challenging in summer as well as in winter.
Or enjoy the art of cooking in the many restaurants abundantly present on the island. Cultural outings are possible in a large variety: in the theater, ateliers and studios, museums.To enjoy a wellness treatment, or start relaxing and slowing down a little from the rat race, you will find Texel the perfect destination. Once having felt the warm welcome of Texel you are bound to return sooner or later. Often more than once a year.
Seaside resort De Koog is central on the island. Daily outings are easy with the village as a starting point. Picturesque villages such as Den Hoorn and De Cocksdorp, but also the larger village of Den Burg can easily be reached on bike. Great advantage of De Koog is its location at the beach and dunes.
De Koog is always brimming with energy. Enjoying yourself is easy here. De Koog has a choice of restaurants, shops, pubs and a lot of other entertainment. With the "Dorpsstraat" as its dynamic centre. But turning the corner of its main street you find yourself at a stone's throw from the dunes, the woods where the villas radiate a rustic atmosphere. Further on behind this chain of dunes the North Sea beach is luring. And right between the brimming centre of the village and the seething waves on the beach is Hotel Tesselhof.
