Enjoying Terschelling with your children
Are you staying with the children at Residence Terschelling Wellness Waddenresort? There are plenty of activities on the island, even for the littlest ones! For example, visit Kinderboerderij 't Hooivak, or go pony or horseback riding at De Prairie. Finally, the Zelfpluktuin (Self-harvest garden) is a fun outing for the whole family. And of course, the children can have fun in our own playground or in our indoor pool.
Do you love animals? Or do your children love to feed and cuddle animals? Then bring the whole family to visit Kinderboerderij (Petting Zoo) and Landbouwmuseum (Agricultural Museum) 't Hooivak! Horses, goats, calves, chickens and lambs, among other things, are walking around on the spacious terrain. Because the pens are freely accessible, the animals can be cuddled (after they have slept of course...). In addition, the children can feed the animals, grind grain, ride a pony, make models, play shuffleboard and much more. Step inside the chicken villa with the littlest ones or walk over the rabbit hill!
Next to the petting zoo, you can visit the Landbouwmuseum on the premises. This is located in the historic farm, dating from the year 1889. The museum shows authentic tools that used to be used on the farm, including a farm wagon and manure carts.
