Wintercastle - Winter at the Nijenhuis

From 13 November, Kasteel het Nijenhuis will be all about winter. Check out the programme below!

13 November to 4 December
The castle of Sinterklaas 

Sinterklaas spends the night during his visit to the Netherlands in Kasteel het Nijenhuis in Heino / Wijhe. He has stored all the presents in one of the castle rooms. And in the library, he works in his big book. After a hard day's work, the Sint sleeps in his big four-poster bed. Sinterklaas will really be present on Saturday, November 19, Saturday, November 26 and Saturday, December 3 from 12:00-16:00. Will you come along too?

16 December to 19 February
Winter castle

Get into the winter atmosphere at Kasteel het Nijenhuis during the Christmas Holidays. Discover the route of lights in the sculpture garden and view winter works from the Fundatie Collection in the Garden Hall near the castle.

Until 8 January, the castle is completely immersed in Christmas atmosphere, with a large Christmas tree, Christmas decorations and, of course, a beautifully laid Christmas table decorated with crafts from the Fundatie Collection.

Saturday, December 17, 3 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Winter Castle Special
Free admission

On the Saturday night before Christmas, Kasteel het Nijenhuis transforms into a winter dream. Live music, mulled wine, hot chocolate, Christmas decorations and lights everywhere. Come along with the whole family!
