    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    bathfoam

    What to buy: There is even a bathfoam and soap made with sheepmilk. Legends tell sheepmilk is good for the skin, but there is no scientific proof........

    What to pay: The bathfoam is sold for €4,50 a big bottle, or €3,15 for a small bottle.
    The soap is €1,80

    Everything made of Sheepproducts

    What to buy: Several shops all over the island sell items made of sheepproducts. Sheep are the symbol of the island.
    At this pic you see woolen sweeters, sheep to play with and many other products.

    What to pay: Probably too much, because it is for the tourist trade.

    harbour of Oudeschild: Do your own fishing trips

    by tompt Updated Aug 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    buy a ship ;), in the harbour of Oudeschild, Texel

    What to buy: In the harbour of Oudeschild you can find this ship. It is for sale.

    If you buy it you can organise your own fishing trips.

    What to pay: Absolutely no idea, we didn´t call the number on the for sale sign. But it is probably a number with lots of zeros behind it.

    Local estate agency: Buy a house and stay here

    house for sale in Den Burg, Texel

    What to buy: If you like this island as much as we did, you can choose to buy a house here. There are several houses for sale. Sometimes it are only season holiday houses, but there are also real nice houses like this one.
    Den Burg has at least two estate agencies.

    What to pay: houses are not cheap on Texel. This one would set you back for € 345.000,=

    all gift shops on Texel: Texel sheep

    by vtveen Updated Feb 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Texel has more sheep than people and when traveling on the island you will see them everywhere. There is even a special famous sheep breed: ‘Texelaar’ (see for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texel_%28sheep%29).

    We found these small and larger ‘sheep’ in several gift shops all over the island . Don’t know if they are made of really sheep wool, but they are cute and an original souvenir of Texel.
    We bought ours in a nice gift shop (Kees de Waal) in Den Burg.

    What to pay: We paid only a couple of euro's.

    several shops: seaside rubbish

    by tompt Updated Aug 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    little lighthouses

    What to buy: Most souvenirshops sell things related to the sea, like small boats or wooden lighthouses.

    What to pay: Always too much, because when you come home you just put it in the closet. Or the person you give it to has to put it away.......
