What should you think of when you think of The Winter Garden? Think of a cozy and cozy setting including campfires, winter activities, a schirmbar, cookies, fun games, a stage for young talent and of course food and drink stalls. The Winter Garden came about as an initiative from the desire to make the Spoorpark attractive to visitors in winter as well. The program is for young and old and there is something for everyone.
The floor plan:
Area 1: The Winter Garden
The winter garden itself is the "outdoor" area. The winter garden is surrounded by Christmas stalls which regularly get a new (thematic) interpretation. Warm up by the campfires or snuggle up under the stretch tent while enjoying a singer songwriter, vinyl DJ or Christmas choir on the outdoor stage.
Daily Christmas (market) houses are open until 10 p.m. unless otherwise indicated.
Area 2: The St. Klaus (The Church)
Although they are not the holiest, a large church graces the garden! Food-themed evenings can be enjoyed daily in this cozy indoor area. How about a special winter barbecue or an evening of XXL sharing dinner plates? In addition, a cozy (Christmas) movie runs regularly.
Area 3: Vriesland
Vriesland is the largest area of Winter Garden, an icy winter wonderland that will serve as the main stage of Ilovesilentdisco Winter Festival and Winter Garden Festival for the first weekend. Starting Sunday, December 18, 10:00 a.m., it will be transformed into the children's paradise with various winter activities and bouncy castles. Here the little ones can romp around under the watchful eye of supervision. Do I see Elsa or Santa Claus walking there?
Area 4: The garden house (Schirmbar)
The garden house is open daily for a chat and a drink. It is the base of the Winter Garden. So during a rainy day in the garden, it's great inside at the bar.
Friday, December 16, The Winter Garden will be open from 16:00 to 01:00.
During the kick-off drink of De Wintertuin they invite the neighborhood for a warm welcome including an opening speech by the Spoorpark manager. The neighborhood is specifically invited, but everyone is welcome to come and take a look at the Winter Garden in advance.
