Do you also want to lose yourself in the mysterious world of Sinterklaas, to engage in a fascinating quest or to witness a spectacular show during the Sinterklaas period ? Well, you should come and visit Sint-Niklaas, the city of Sinterklaas.

Sunday 16 November, it will be the big day again, when Sinterklaas will make his entrance into the city of Sint-Niklaas.

For this occasion, the market square will be transformed into a ‘Sinterklaas playing area’, the largest and most entertaining playing area in our country. There will be a lot to see and to do!

Visit Sinterklaas’House, a stately house near the railway station and the shopping street. During an exquisite visit to this Magic House, you will find an answer to all your questions about Sinterklaas. The Zwarte Pieten, the Black Petes, will show you the reception room, the bedroom, the bathroom and the toilets, the study room, the hobby room, a real theatre and a large room filled with toys. An unforgettable experience!

 Then, put your detective shoes on!  Take a walk in the city centre and discover all the secrets of Sinterklaas before they will be hidden forever.

Do you also want to attend the show ‘Sinterklaas in the Circus Ring’? No problem: you’ll have the opportunity to do so on 22, 23, 29 or 30 November!

The most entertaining Sinterklaas celebration in Flanders offers you an hour and a half of pleasure, where traditional circus acts are revived in a contemporary context. Marvelous costumes, magical light effects, a big circus orchestra with live music and a lot of surprises are guarantees for an extraordinary event. And of course, Sinterklaas and his friends, the Black Petes, will be there as well… and at the end of the show, they will provide a little present for all of the children. This event is organized together with the well-known National Circus of the Netherlands Herman Renz.
