Winter Efteling returns for 24th year

Warme Winter Weide, winter garden extended with ice-skating rink

Efteling visitors can once again enjoy the warm atmospheres of the Winter Efteling from today. For the 24th time in a row, the theme park has been transformed into a winter paradise with crackling bonfires, atmospheric garlands and thousands of sparkling lights. As usual, the rides and inhabitants of the park have prepared for winter in their own special way. Also, after two years, the park’s ice-skating rink has returned. The Warme Winter Weide, a nostalgic winter garden, has been extended with an open-air ice-skating rink, which visitors can enjoy until 5 March 2023.
