You might find snow and ice there.
Weekend tips of week 51
Royal Christmas Fair
The Royal Christmas Fair is a grand Christmas market in the center of The Hague. Around the Hofvijver on the Lange Vijverberg you will find a variety of stands with the most diverse and tasteful products. You can find fashion accessories, jewelry, brocante, clothing, books, tableware, toys and more. You name it, you can find it at the Royal Christmas Fair.
Of course there is also room for the inner man. So you can eat poffertjes, taste tapas, drink wine, snack on satay and much more. Entertainment is also provided on stages and in the streets. Think theater, choirs, musicians and storytellers. This cozy event started yesterday and is still open every day until Wednesday, December 23.
For all information and opening hours check the website of the Royal Christmas Fair.
While you are in The Hague, get tickets for the Groot Kerstcircus on Malieveld at the same time. Last year we went ourselves and the little guy was astonished. The acrobats flew through the air, the clowns made it a party and all in all it really was a spectacular circus. There are a lot of shows playing until January 3, so there is bound to be a date and time that works for you.
If you do not live near The Hague but would like to go to this winter magic show? Also in Amsterdam, Maastricht and Utrecht you can find performances of the Winter Circus until January 3. Take a quick look at the website of the Winter Circus.
Winter in Plaswijck Park
Plaswijckpark I have mentioned before. This is a hugely versatile park in Rotterdam with something fun for young and old and weather or no weather. You will find a zoo, an indoor playground, a traffic square, playgrounds and more. Since last Wednesday Plaswijck park has changed into Winterwijck. The whole park is transformed into a winter scene with Christmas trees, lights and decorations.
You’ll get into the Christmas spirit. You can even skate on an indoor ice rink or race on a running ski track. It is also possible to have a game of curling or just a game of ice hockey. Plaswijckpark is open every day from 10.00 to 17.00hour.
Only Christmas Day and January 1 are closed.
Are you going to do something nice during the Christmas holidays?? Happy Holidays!
