Spring break

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

During the spring break Zwin guides are stationed at various spots in the park and will be happy to supply you with extra information on the fauna and flora of the Zwin area!


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


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”.
