Sand sculptures at the Veluwe

’t Veluws Zandsculpturenfestijn of the season 2017, will be open from 14 April to 28 October. From Monday to Saturday. This year’s theme is “Explore your own country”. What’s more fun than discovering the Netherlands in just one day. All of the beautiful buildings, regions and famous attractions, that the Netherlands are rich of, are depicted in sand. A beautiful experience for the young and the old.

The festival is open from 14 April to 28 October 2017 (not on Sundays). For details about the opening hours, click here.

Inside “Board games and riddles”.

In the covered part of the festival you will find about 40 sculptures depicting several group- or board games. Small scenes that clearly tell a story. The challenging assignment: consider which game is depicted in each sand sculpture. Whoever is able to guess them all, has a chance to win nice prizes.
