Have you always wanted to island hop between the Dutch Wadden Islands? Then visit Vlieland during your stay on Texel! In high season, you can take the ferry 'De Vriendschap' as a foot passenger for a one-way or day trip from Texel to Vlieland and/or vice versa.

Behind our hotel, in the nature of Texel Dunes National Park, lies the Sommeltjespad: a discovery trail for young children in the woods. Along the 1.5-kilometre trail, children can look for Sommeltjes. But look around and discover much more than just stone figures!
