In the morning you will be awakened by the cows or sheep standing on the pasture, adjacent to the hotel. The hotel is located on the edge of the forest, with the beach and the sea behind it. So after breakfast, you can go straight into the forest to inhale the pure air. Bicycles are available at the hotel. There are walking and cycling routes for those who want to enjoy the beautiful nature of Texel. For those who want to shop, the main village of the island, Den Burg, is 3 kilometres away.
MAP & ROUTE TO HOTEL TEXEL
When you come to Texel, you take our ferry in Den Helder. You can purchase an online boat ticket in advance via www.teso.nl. Are you going on foot, by bike/moped or by your own transport? The choice is yours. If you use public transport, we advise you to book a Texelhopper in time. To all other destinations on Texel, you can use the small Texel hopper buses. These run between the 130 stop-offs. The small vans must be reserved at least one hour before departure of the van. You can get off at stop 148.
In Den Helder, only fifty miles north of Amsterdam, the double decker ferry sails every hour to Texel. The crossing only takes twenty minutes. It is not necessary (or possible) to reserve a place on the ferry; but you can buy an e-ticket. During busy periods there are two ferries per hour.
Hotel de 14 Sterren is easy to reach by car. From the boat, follow the signs for De Koog. Turn left at the third roundabout (exit 11). After approximately 900 meters you will see Hotel de 14 Sterren on your left.
Are you on Texel by car? Then buy a Texel e-vignette for carefree park. You can buy this digital parking receipt online. As of January 1, 2017, Texel will implement paid parking in all villages and at the entrances to the beach. You can buy a Texel e-vignette for a day, a week or a year.
How it works
Enter your license plate number via www.texelevignet.nl, choose the desired parking period and pay. The traffic wardens scan on license plate numbers and check for what period you have purchased a Texel e-vignette. The e-vignette is for sale online and at the parking meters.
For a single ticket you pay € 2.50 per hour at the parking meter (NOT possible to use coins). A Texel e-vignette costs € 10.00 per day, € 20 per week or € 30 per year (valid from 1/12/2018 till 1/2/2020). Paid parking applies from Monday through Saturday from 09.00 – 18.00 hours. At a limited number of locations parking time is restricted to 2 hours. Here you use the blue parking disc (in combination with the e-vignette or valid parking ticket).
Free parking is available on some parking lots outside the city center. Please download the map of the municipality of Texel on the right side of this page to see where you can park for free.
