Valentine in the Zwin

Zwin Natuur Park

Make the best of your spring break with a romantic escapade to the Zwin!
Find out all about the secrets of our ‘lovebirds’ as you stroll along the huts. The guides will tell you all about birds, their courting rituals, love nests and various nesting boxes.

Admire the birds on the breeding islands from the observation hut. The guide at the lab hut will show you how to observe the wonders of tiny organisms in detail. Our youngest visitors can listen to an exciting romantic story at the observation centre and find out what it’s like to write with a real bird’s feather.

A gorgeous programme that you can't miss!
