Enjoy the world's biggest display of lights
The Huis Ten Bosch's Kingdom of Lights presents an otherworldly scene of many colors. Millions of light bulbs turn the night into a wonderland, the likes of which you've never seen before.
There's a cafe built over the Art Garden of Light that has a glass floor that allows diners to bask in the soft glow of the lights while watching the beautiful illuminations on the light waterfall just before them.
There's also a bridge from which you can jump. Drop 20 meters straight into the Art Garden of Lights at the Bungee Bridge. Despite an average waiting period of an hour, this plunge is well worth it.
Over the Christmas period, you can see a giant Christmas tree at the heart of Huis Ten Bosch . With the tree standing at a staggering 30 meters in height, this heartwarming light display is accompanied by music to create a warm and dreamlike atmosphere.
