De Grote Schijn

In addition to Arnhem, Rotterdam will also host this magical journey through the forest this autumn. A journey in which the forest comes to life with whispering trees, remarkable light projections and enchanting sounds. Truly magical!

The walking route has been renewed this year and is no less than 2 kilometers long, with surprising elements wherever you look.

“Last year we rediscovered the beauty and power of nature. If there was one thing positive about the last two years: we all went outside, into the woods on one of the many walks. During ‘the Great Shine’ we let people dream away again. We created a wonderful world, far away from reality, in which visitors – young and old – can let their imaginations run wild.” – Director Christophe Van Hostauijen
