Kids at Holiday Park ‘De Riesen’

Our park is equipped with various types of playground equipment.

We also offer the possibility to rent DVDs, and a cabinet full of games that you can borrow. During the summer holidays, we offer animation activities for kids, such as our mascots Ekkie the oystercatcher and Bessie the bee.

Around our holiday park, your children will find plenty of space to play and to explore nature nearby our park. Foraging through the dunes and running through the forest…

Is there anyone who does not like that?!

Hello, my name is Ekkie the Oystercatcher

         ☼      ♫

I am so happy that you are all coming to visit me and my friends.

You can find me at Holiday Park ‘Tjermelân’ and Holiday Park ‘De Riesen’ during summer holidays from 16 July to 28 August. 

I will be at Holiday Park ‘Tjermelân’ together with my friend Bessie the bee. We will be dancing and singing all day long! Will you be there, too?




Of course we aren’t just going to be dancing and singing; we will be pottering, playing and we’re going to have a lot of fun!

Will you swing by the reception when you arrive?

By then, we will have listed all the fun activities that we have in store for you!  ☼


See you soon!!! ☺


And… Just in case you can’t wait..

In the meantime, you can try singing the Ekkie song!

Hello everyone! I am Bessie the bee

Hello everyone! I am Bessie the bee

I am the happiest bee on the entire island!

Ekkie is my best friend, and together we have the most exciting adventures!

Did you know that Ekkie once saved me from a very dangerous spiders’ web?

Fortunately, it all turned out well, and I can fly to my beloved flowers every day.




Are you curious to find out more about Bessies adventures?

You will need to have a little more patience… Soon you will get to read all about her adventures!

We are friends with Ekkie and Bessie!
