Zalig Kerstfeest en Gelukkig nieuw jaar
Winterland in Hasselt
Date : 24 November 2018 – 06 January 2019
The atmosphere of the cosy café next to the skating rink is similar to a the more renowned German Christmas markets. Santa will live and work in his own house, built on the Kolonel Dusartplein. The Finnish house is a replica of ‘the Home of Santa Claus’ in Rovaniemi, Santa’s official residence. The Hasselt house has a post room, a bedroom, a living room, study, kitchen and bathroom. The house opens every day from noon to 8 pm. Santa Clause is aided by three Elves who give visitors a tour of the house. In the middle of the skating rink stands a huge Christmas tree, decorated with thousands of red LED lights.
The Christmas market on the Kolonel Dusartplein is a major aspect of Winterland. It offers various chalets and several tents where participants offer their Christmas articles and let you enjoy the tastiest winter snacks and drinks.
The winter atmosphere can also be found off the Kolonel Dusartplein. The Grote Markt can’t escape Winterland either. Apart from the big lit Christmas tree and the large crib, there is a unique attraction for young and old: the ‘Hesselse Poepjee’, a genuine Venetian carrousel with two-storeys and painted with real Hasselt tableaus will make many a child’s heart beat faster. There is also a Christmas market at the Molenpoort that is well worth a visit.
