The ferry crossing
From Den Helder, TESO runs a ferry to Texel every hour. You don’t need to reserve a date or time slot for this service. However, you can buy a return ticket in advance here
and you have the option to register your car or other means of transport for automatic access. Also check the website for fares and current information on the ferry service.
If you want to come to Texel on public transport, take the train to Den Helder. A Connexxion bus (number 33) leaves the train station in Den Helder at 12 minutes past the hour for the 'Veerhaven' (ferry port). The service only connects with regular crossings. On Texel, a 'Texelhopperbus'* (number 28) will be waiting when the ferry arrives. This will take your to De Koog via Den Burg. You cannot use your public transport chip card on this service. For more information and prices, visit the website or call +31 (0)222 78 40 00.
*You can buy tickets for the Texelhopper (number 28) on the bus.
