Let’s get into the Christmas spirit with a day trip to Deventer for the 29th edition of the Dickens Festival!

Dickens Festival
This is one of the most loved Christmas events in the Netherlands! Every year the historic Bergkwartier of Deventer is transformed for two days into a real-life scene from a Charles Dickens novel.  

Everywhere you can see traditional 19th century Christmas decorations and more than 950 characters from Dickens' novels are brought to life around you. From wealthy lords and ladies to pickpockets, you feel like you have stepped into the events of "A Christmas Carol' or "Oliver Twist". 

Combine this with a market on the square, traditional carolers and the scents of roasted chestnuts and you can't fail to feel festive!
