Beginning today, November 13th, until February 4th, 2024, the beloved Dutch theme park Efteling undergoes a magical transformation into a Winter Wonderland. Unique among theme parks during the December period, Winter Efteling focuses not on Christmas but on the cosy essence of winter and the warmth of family togetherness.

Winter Efteling delights guests with an array of enchanting attractions. The park sparkles under thousands of twinkling lights and cosy bonfires, creating an atmosphere of wonder. This year's highlights include a larger open-air ice skating rink and the Warme Winter Weide, an area dedicated to winter joy. Visitors can explore a winter garden filled with festive food, entertainment, and luminous butterflies, originally designed for the GLOW light festival. Life-sized snow globes inviting guests into wintery scenes add to the charm.

Daily entertainment in the winter garden features musical performances and beloved characters like Fay the Fee and Pinocchio creating snowy enchantments, while Pardoes the Magic Jester and Princess Pardijn welcome children. Culinary delights such as Belgian waffles, soups, and hot chocolate milk are available throughout the park. The grand finale includes Aquanara, Europe's largest water show, ensuring a memorable visit to Winter Efteling.

As evening descends, Villa Volta captivates with its transformation into a giant optical illusion. The Raveleijn park show becomes a spectacle of fire and light, involving horses and ravens. Around 200 fountains across the park will also spring to life, synchronized with music, fire, and light effects, adding to the special evening ambiance of Winter Efteling.
