Sand sculptures at the Veluwe

The season of 2016 is finished and the event is currently closed. We are hard at work preparing for the season of 2017. The theme will be “Discover the Netherlands in 1 day”, with another fun puzzle in the indoor area. More information will follow.

The festival will again guarantee a unique and attractive day out for the whole family. The sand art and the atmosphere around these sculptures provide an attraction for domestic and foreign tourists and place the Veluwe on the map even more.

The festival will be opened in 2017 from April 14th / October 28th (except on Sundays).
