Ice-Skating Rink Returns at 24th Winter Efteling

For the 24th year running, Efteling is getting ready for Winter Efteling. On 14 November 2022, the fairytale theme park will once again be transformed into a winter paradise with crackling bonfires, atmospheric garlands and thousands of sparkling lights. The rides and inhabitants of the park will be preparing for winter in their own special way and, after two years, the park’s ice-skating rink will return. The Warme Winter Weide, a nostalgic winter garden, will be extended with the uncovered ice-skating rink, which visitors can enjoy until 5 March 2023.

The Warme Winter Weide winter garden will feature additional entertainment and heartwarming daily musical offerings alongside warming food and drinks. Highlights for children include Pardoes the Magic Jester and Princess Pardijn welcoming children in a sleigh and the beloved fairy, Fay de Fee, and Pinocchio trying to make it snow. Visitors can enjoy the acapella music of Zang & Gelukkig. From 10 December, Mister and Madam Time, from theatre show CARO, will perform winter songs on weekends and holidays in the Carousel Palace. A new Witches Camp can be found in the beautifully lit Fairytale Forest and each day will end with spectacular colourful water show Aquanura. 

Mother Holle
To get into the spirit of Winter Efteling, from today Mother Holle will make it snow in Efteling, as after almost three years, the fairytale returns to its familiar spot in the Fairytale Forest. 

New Year's Eve
Visitors can celebrate an enchanting New Year's Eve at Winter Efteling as the park and its attractions reopen from 7pm until 1am, with additional live entertainment for visitors to enjoy. More information about the program and ticket sales can be found on efteling.com from November.

Those wishing to extend their stay at Winter Efteling can stay overnight at Efteling Hotel, Holiday Village Efteling Loonsche Land or Holiday Village Efteling Bosrijk. Overnight stays always include unlimited access to the amusement park.
