Oudeschild is a Wadden Sea (North Sea) cruise port and town on Texel Island, part of Netherlands' Noord-Holland province (Texel municipality) with population around 1,300. Holland's region Waddeneiland (Wadden Islands) is marked by Waddenzee (Wadden Sea) - a natural inland waterway between Netherlands (Den Helder) and Denmark (Esbjerg).

Oudeschild (Holland) river cruise port

During the 17th-century, the small village Oudeschild developed as a ship provisioning port for Rede van Texel - an important anchorage for cargo ships, many of which were owned by VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie / Dutch East-India Company, 1602-1800) and homeported in Amsterdam.

Town's best-known tourist attractions include Ruyterstraat (1-km long main street lined with traditionally-facaded houses, De Traanroeier (1902-built windmill, relocated here from Zaandam), Kaap Skil (maritime-themed museum), Wezenputten (two water wells from where VOC ships were supplied with fresh water), Texelse Bierbrouwerij (Texel Beer Brewery, since 2015 - the 9th member of Nederlandse Brouwers). The brewery produces the popular Texel beer labels Skuumkoppe, Goudkoppe, Wit, Eyerlander, Dubbel, Tripel, Vuurbaak, Bock, Stormbock, Noorderwiend, Springtij, and Seumerfeugel.

As cruise port, Oudeschild was included in the 2019 schedules of Saga Cruises (riverboat Filia Rheni 2) and Phoenix Reisen (ship Amadea). Next tables show both itineraries.
