Winter Efteling - the fairytale wonderland in the Netherlands
The fairytale wonderland of the Efteling is a marvellous sight to behold during the winter days and the long winter evenings. Decorations with thousands of lights, heart-warming bonfires and special attractions add even more magic to the beautiful theme park.
Highlights of Winter Efteling
This year, to celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Winter Efteling will add a larger open-air ice skating rink to its attractions. Along with the winter garden that has festive food and entertainment, special luminous butterflies that were designed for the GLOW light festival will appear at the Efteling. Life-sized snow globes that will make you want to step into the wintery worlds within them will add to the cheery atmosphere.
Every day, the winter garden will feature extra entertainment and festive musical performances. Fay the Fee and Pinocchio will try to make it snow while Pardoes the Magic Jester and Princess Pardijn welcome children into the sleigh. Wintery snacks, Belgian waffles, soups and hot chocolate milk can be bought at stalls all around the park. You can also catch Aquanara, the largest water show in Europe, to round off a very exciting visit to the Winter Efteling.
In the evening, the attraction of Villa Volta changes into a giant optical illusion. Raveleijn, a park show with horses and ravens, becomes extra exciting with spectacular fires and lights. Around 200 fountains, scattered around the grounds, will bring attractions to life with music, fire and light effects.
