Magical forest light show De Grote Schijn in Rotterdam

Magical forest light show De Grote Schijn in Rotterdam

After a sold out edition last year in Rotterdam with more than 30,000 visitors, De Grote Schijn returns to the Netherlands. This autumn, De Grote Schijn will be coming back as a whole new show in the Kralingse Bos in Rotterdam.
From Thursday, 14 October to Sunday, 31 October 2021, Kralingse Bos forms the natural backdrop for a special walking tour through the dark, where all the senses will be stimulated.

Audiovisual spectacle

De Grote Schijn (The Great Shine) is a special evening walk for young and old. Nature plays the leading role in a special audiovisual spectacle and the forest and park are used as a natural backdrop, where visitors experience a light show that creates amazement. Supposedly, it is as if the forest has been put under a magic spell; trees seem to come alive, mushrooms have been plucked from a fairy tale and are given a luminous glow while a new surprise awaits behind every bush.
A unique audiovisual spectacle brings an innovative story without words, with innovative gadgets and luminous emotions. Through light, sound and scents, eyes, ears and noses go on an adventure. There are no fairy creatures or evil wizards who spread their magic and bring the forest to life, everything comes from a strong piece of technology.

During the autumn holidays, visitors can enjoy a spotlighted autumn walk in accordance with the government's corona measures. To avoid queues at the entrance, tickets are sold by name and time slots are used. You walk this walk with your own group/company and keep 1.5 meters away from other visitors. It is a unique total experience for every visitor.
