Around Christmas and new year, the new winter festival will be taking place, giving you plenty of opportunities to enjoy the lights and warmth of the city. A unique light concept will give the city a very special Christmas atmosphere. There will be two light and experience walks, which will lead you past the fairy-tale lights of the city, offering plenty of surprises as you pass light installations along the way. There will also be an artificial skating rink on the lake in the romantic Minnewaterpark, with a winter bar offering heart-warming drinks and unique refreshments. The Minnewaterpark is sure to be a top place to meet friends for people of all ages this winter! Don’t forget the Christmas market on the Markt and Simon Stevinplein. With its many chalets, this is a great place to pick up some original gifts.
