Easter at the Zwin

Zwin Nature Park
The Easter trail is included in the standard entrance ticket.

Are you looking for something fun to do for all the family?

During the entire Easter vacations there is plenty to do in the Zwin Nature Park.

Come and experience an adventure in the wild, during which the Zwin guides will introduce you to its magnificent flora and fauna. Learn to recognise the birds on the breeding island, explore the fascinating world of salt- and freshwater creatures, and find out all about bird migration at the ringing hut. 

And for children? They can take part in an egg hunt and enjoy exciting stories and games. Don't miss our family tours on the theme of “From A to Zwin”. Come and experience nature with us!

The Zwin guides are there for you!


Fresh water lab

At the freshwater lab, you can take a very close look at tiny creatures.

You’ll be amazed at what these organisms look like under a microscope!

From 10:30 to 16:00


Birds on the breeding islands

Is that a Mediterranean gull, a black-headed gull, or a little tern? The Zwin guide will help you identify the birds you see with a telescope!

From 11:00 to 16:30


A walk on the Zwin Plain

Follow the blue or green itineraries on the Zwin Plain. A Zwin guide will be there at the beginning of your walk and tell you more about this unique tidal area.

From 11:30 to 17:00


A unique saltwater lab

Do you know why the birds love the tidal area so much? For its extensive menu, of course!

Shrimps, crabs, worms, mussels... all kinds of goodies birds simply can't get enough of and that you can see up close at the saltwater lab.

The saltwater lab is open from 12:30 to 17:00

Bird ringing

Bird ringing will resume during the Easter holidays. You can watch the ringer at the ringing hut from Saturday 30 March up to and including Sunday 14 April.

An important scientific task which you can see close up!

From 10:00 to 12:00 at the latest (depending on the weather)


Egg exhibition

So you want to know all about eggs? The Zwin guide will show you all kinds of eggs you’ve never seen before!

From 14:15 to 17:00 at the ringing hut

Children’s activities

Come and learn all about eggs in the wild during the egg hunt! This time, the focus isn't on birds’ eggs, but on those of other egg-laying species.

Then, you can play at “Whose baby is this?” and listen to the story of “The hedgehog’s egg”.



Visit the storks

Ever seen a stork close up on its nest? No? In that case, don't forget to visit the stork tower to watch these wonderful birds!
