The third edition of the Scheveningen Light Walk will take place in Scheveningen near The Hague on Saturday, December 14. The most enchanting walking event of the season, each year, thousands of brave participants put on their walking shoes and trek 5,5 km, 7,5 km, 12,5 km or 18,5 km through a magically lit Scheveningen.

Scheveningen Light Walk

The Scheveningen Light Walk is an outdoor event in which a Christmas fairy tale atmosphere entertains the walkers along the route in ways you might have never expected. Participants start in pitch-black darkness, to subsequently be astonished by an array of lights in different shapes and forms.

Four walking tours take you past light installations, music performances and spectacular light and fire acts by celebrated local artists. The organisation expects around 12.500 participants this year, including many families and kids. Let's hope the Dutch weather stays fine for the duration of the walk!

Four different distances

For the 12,5 km and the 18,5 km walk, the starting point, as well as the finish, is the Scheveningen Pier. The walk will lead over the beach, through dunes, woods, parks and other well-known areas of Scheveningen, such as the harbour. On top of this, the tour leads you through Madurodam and Sea Life.

The Kids Light Walk of 5,5 km, for children aged 4-12, and the shortest adult's walk of 7,5 km, begin at Madurodam. Children can enter Madurodam with the Scheveningen Light Walk ticket from 3pm onwards.

Sign up or watch from afar

If you're on time, sign up for Scheveningen Light Walk to take part, although you'll have to be quick because it gets booked up very quickly. Otherwise, if you're in the neighbourhood, see if you can catch some of the captivating lights outside and, if you are into beautiful walks by night, keep this great new event in mind for next year!
