Summer at the Zwin

01/07/21 - 31/08/21
10:00 - 18:00

During the summer holidays, the Zwin Nature Park’s huts will be open and offer visitors a wide range of activities.

Watch the breeding islands!

In the observation hut and at the observation wall, a Zwin guide is available to supply information about the birds that use the breeding islands to rest and feed.

You can use the fixed Swarovski telescope to take a closer look at the birds on the island. If you need help, just ask the guide!

Would you like to know why ringing is so important and find out how bird ringers work? 

You can watch a film about bird ringing as of July, and in August you can even take a hands-on part in ringing.

As of 1 August, the ringers will be present every day from 10:00 to 12:00.
