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).
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.
