#1 Picking fruit at the picking garden

In the summer months, you and the children can pick your own fruit at picking garden Groenhof in Oosterend. Pick delicious fresh strawberries, plums, cherries or berries. Or let the children pick flowers themselves, so you will have a beautiful bouquet of wild flowers for your apartment at the end of the day. The picking garden is free to visit, but you will of course have to pay for what the children pick.

#2 Pony riding on Terschelling

At de Prairie on Terschelling, your children can learn pony or horse riding. There are suitable ponies or horses for both small and big riders. Can your children already ride a pony? Then take them on an adventurous ride through the forest or on a beach ride. In the summer months, your children can also take part in a pony camp.

#3 Crab catching

Catching crabs with the family in West-Terschelling is a real experience for the children. With a small bucket, a fishing rod and a bowl of bacon, the children are ready to set off. You will find the best spot on the pier at the Wadden Sea (West-Terschelling). Exciting for the children? Yes, but mostly lots of fun! After catching the crabs, of course, they are quickly returned to the sea.

#4 Wrecks Museum

The Wrecks Museum is an outing for the whole family. This museum has been collecting wreckage since 1975, all from ships that sank around the Wadden island of Terschelling between 1650 and today. For the children, there is a Pirate Garden with a real pirate ship. They will also have a great time in the garden, in the castle or in the tree house!
