Nacht van de Nacht
Keep the darkness in the darkness and discover how beautiful the night is during Nacht van de Nacht (Night of the Night) on the last Saturday in October. Nacht van de Nacht is an annual event where countless companies and municipalities turn the lights off and you can participate in a variation of activities in the dark throughout the country, including the Dutch National Parks.
In Leiden, for instance, you can board a ship for Kaag island, and an electric boat without lights departs into the darkness of the Biesbosch. There is also plenty to do in the darkest place in Holland, the Wadden Islands: experience true darkness on a wagon ride in the night on Terschelling or watch the breath-taking sky full of stars on Schiermonnikoog. A night you will never forget!
