The Royal Christmas Fair

14 days of sheer Christmas magic
The Lange Voorhout in The Hague will once again host the largest multi-day Christmas fair in the Netherlands from 9 to 22 December. This year, you can enjoy the ultimate Christmas experience at the Royal Christmas Fair for 14 days, with approximately 100 Christmas stalls filled with traditional products, daily performances by Christmas carollers, crackling fire baskets and, of course, a visit from Santa in the flesh. One thing is for sure: we will do more than make up for last year’s absence of a Christmas fair.

The royal atmosphere at Lange Voorhout
The Lange Voorhout is by far the most beautiful avenue in The Hague. In the spring, you can stroll between the magnificent green lime trees, while in winter it is transformed into an enchanting Christmas village for the Royal Christmas Fair. More than 100,000 LEDs in the trees create a magical starry sky. Everywhere around you, you can feel and taste the Christmas spirit. Something we have all been looking forward to after a year without Christmas markets.

Traditional, unique and plenty of Christmas
For a fortnight, the Christmas stalls will be occupied by various entrepreneurs who all sell their own unique, traditional, or surprising products. There will also be plenty of stalls that offer typical winter delicacies such as mulled wine, curry sausage or a delicious hot chocolate with whipped cream for you to enjoy. Unique this year is a Christmas Village pavilion, covering 120 m2, completely dedicated to the most beautiful Christmas decorations for home and garden. Think of Disney figures by Kurt S. Adler, man-sized nutcrackers, garlands, and many other Christmas-related knick-knacks.

The perfect December getaway
This Christmas offer is complemented by a programme packed with seasonal experiences. Every day, Christmas carollers and actors will move around the fair, singing and creating a wonderful atmosphere. And, of course, let’s not forget about the one and only Santa. Get your picture taken in the decorated sleigh and you have your Christmas card for this year!

The Royal Christmas Fair is a great idea for a day out with the whole family. Book your stay for a couple of days in The Hague, enjoy one of the great hotels in the city centre and visit one of the many museums, Scheveningen and the liveliest Christmas fair in the Netherlands.
