How do the tickets work?
Each adult and child who is able to walk (1+ years old) must have a valid ticket to enter the Christmas Castle. You can purchase your tickets using the link below. Your ticket provides you access to the Christmas Castle during a specific time slot. During this time your group will be guided through the Castle by one of our Elves. The tour lasts approximately one hour. We kindly request that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the time slot allocated on your ticket, so that you can enter the Castle on time with your group. Please allow for time to park your car/bike and walk to the Castle.
This is a Christmas event you don’t want to miss, a magical experience for children and adults!

The Christmas Castle serves the purpose of spreading the magic of Christmas to everyone, including families and children who might not be able to pay for a ticket. We are partnering with Stichting Het Vergeten Kind and Combinatie Jeugdzorg to reach these families and invite them to visit Santa at the Christmas Castle for free. In order to give these families this experience free of charge we are looking for sponsors who can help. Companies can support this social initiative by providing financial or product sponsorship.
For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit this page for sponsorship opportunities.
