Good eggs at the ringing cabin!

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

10:30-13:15

(on days when no ringing is being performed - from 3 to. 10 April and on 18 April)

Bird ringing from 11 to 17 April

Between Sunday 11 and Saturday 17 April, you can watch birds being ringed in the ringing cabin.

An important scientific task which you can see close up!

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

The Zwin guides are there for you!

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 fresh water lab, you can take a very close look at tiny creatures.

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

11:00-16:30

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!

11:30-17:00

See birds close up at the feeding cabin

Behind the glass of the feeding cabin, the birds can’t see you, but you can see them! This gives you a chance to watch many birds without disturbing them.

10:30-15:30

Children’s activities

“Find the egg’s mum” egg hunt

By performing various tasks in the park, children can find the bird that laid the egg.

Have they completed the hunt? A tasty surprise awaits them on the entrance square!

Non-stop during opening hours, from 10:00 to 18:00

Game: “Whose baby is this?”

Children learn to recognise the characteristics of chicks to identify the adult birds. They find out that in some cases chicks do not at all look like their parents! A fun way to learn to recognise various bird species.

13:30 -16:15

Story: ‘Egel’s Egg’

Children can listen to this great story about Egel’s egg.

14:45-17:30

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 from behind a window.

Zwin guide present from 12am till 5pm

'Shepherds in the Zwin’ exhibition

Shepherds have worked in the Zwin area for over a thousand years. Even today, sheep help with nature management by grazing on the Zwin dikes.

One special feature is the genuine shepherd’s cabin that was used in the Zwin area in the 1930s.

Visit this unique exhibition in the park - it’s included in the standard ticket price!
