  The beautiful Reformed Church of De Cocksdorp.

What else does de Cocksdorp has to offer? Not too much to be honest. A large amount of the original farms and houses have been replaced by new buildings, because many buildings were destroyed during the Georgian uprising. Yet the style of construction of some of the farms and houses still indicates the original ones.

But a very nice building to see and visit is the Reformed Church of De Cocksdorp. This particular church was taken in to use as early as 1841. The church has a lavishly carved oak pulpit from the first half of the 17th century. It comes from the English Church in The Hague, which was taken out of use in 1822. Unfortunately we were not able to enter it, because it's only open in the summer during the markets on thursday evening. After the sightseeing we drove some more on our bikes through the surroundings of De Cocksdorp. We visited the Moai statues at the 'Eiland Gallerij' and the Texel Airport 'Vlijt' with its large amount of activities.
