Fantasy fair Elfia Arcen
You'll never dream alone! Sharing your most fantastical dreams with others is what Elfia is all about.
The magical realm of Elfia
Elfia is a magical realm that exists parallel to our world, and twice per year its gateway opens into our world. This September, the gateway will open in the marvellous castle gardens in Arcen, right by the German border.
At this enchanting event, similar to a renaissance fair, you can enjoy the wonderful company of various exhibitors who offer music, merchandise, games, workshops and presentations, all in the spirit of Elf Fantasy.
