Eureka Orchideeën & Vogelbush

Lonely Planet review

June is the time to see wild orchids on Texel, a rarity in the country; outside this month, dress lightly and head for the steamy Eureka Orchideeën & Vogelbush. Native orchid species can be viewed in all their tender, quivering glory alongside a menagerie of tropical birds in a large greenhouse. A large shop (silk orchids, oh dear) subsidises the free entrance.
