    At the far north of the Texel you will find the lighthouse of the island. Up on top of the tower you are about 45 meter above sea level. On top you will have a great view over the Waddensea, Nortsea, the islands Texel, Vlieland and Terschelling.

    The lighthouse was build in 1864. During WW2 it was heavily damaged. The new lighthouse was build around the damaged tower. When you are climing up, you will see the bullet holes from WW2.

    There is limit access to the tower. So, no more then 50 people can visit the tower. There is no elevator in the lighthouse. You have to climb all up to the top.

    When you are staying at the Parc De Krim, you can make a ride on a horse. You can choose between a forest ride and forest&beach ride. The forest&beach ride costs € 32 (in 2009). My nieces did twice a forest&beach ride. And they really enjoyed it!

    On the island of Texel you will have various beaches. When I was on Texel, I went to the beach in the north. Near the city De Cocksdorp. It was really nice to walk on the beach and see the ocean.

    Labora is a small shop where you can buy ice cream.

    The ice cream is made from the cows who are present at the farm. This farm is next to the shop where they sell the ice cream. The ice cream is made of milk and cream. Not good for your diet, but it is really tasty!
    There are various flavours of ice cream. Like vanilla, strawberry and granny's apple pie.

    Opening hours are in summer from 11am till 9pm and in winter from 1.30pm till 6pm.
