The third edition of the Rotterdam Night Walk is set to illuminate the city streets on the evening of 27 December, offering a unique walking experience for residents and visitors alike.
Third edition of Rotterdam Night Walk announced
The third edition of the Rotterdam Night Walk is scheduled for the evening of 27 December, 2023. Participants can choose between two routes, approximately 7 or 12 km long, through the illuminated streets of Rotterdam. The event will take place after the Christmas holidays, providing an opportunity for walking enthusiasts to engage in physical activity.
New route explores Delfshaven and western Rotterdam
This year, the event will feature a new route. Instead of starting and finishing in the city centre, the walk will explore Delfshaven and the western parts of Rotterdam. Entertainment will be provided along the route, enhancing the overall experience.
Participants will receive a starting ticket and refreshments during the walk. A commemorative pin will be given at the finish line. The event will commence as darkness falls, between 17:45 and 19:00.
Supporting Stichting Jarige Job
This year's event will support Stichting Jarige Job, a foundation that assists families in the Netherlands who cannot afford to celebrate their children's birthdays. The foundation provides a birthday box worth €35, containing all the essentials for a proper birthday celebration at home and school.
How to participate
Registration for the event is now open and can be completed via the official website. Children up to 6 years old can participate for free, while a special rate is available for children between 6 and 11 years old.
