At the Midwinter Festival in Graft-De Rijp, it seems as if time has stood still. On 10 and 11 December, the streets in the picturesque town centre will transform into a fairytale village. In historic De Rijp, people will live as they used to, complete with nostalgic clothing. Of course, you can enjoy tasty drinks and tastings at the stalls during the Midwinter Festival. From holiday park EuroParcs De Rijp, you can be in the charming centre of De Rijp in no time!
Countless lights, a nostalgic carousel and a skating rink. During Winter Station at the Railway Museum in Utrecht, you will go back in time for a while. Here, from 24 December 2022 to 8 January 2023, you can feast on poffertjes, oliebollen or a cup of snert (stew) among old steam locomotives and trains. You can also roast marshmallows over the fire and strap on your skates for a round on the indoor ice rink. Want to take a look? From holiday park EuroParcs De Utrechtse Heuvelrug you can drive there in half an hour!
On 10 and 11 December 2022, you can once again fully enjoy the Dickens Festival.
