  • Met Santa for a photo, which was fantastic! Overall it’s very pretty and exciting especially for children, but pricey and somewhat commercialised. I’ve been once, and probably won’t go again. Was...  more »

  • Absolutely wonderful, magical place that Santa calls home. Not only do they have the Santa village but they have real reindeer. I love this place and their website. Great for kids of all ages and your own inner child.
  • You really feel it is Santa's home and feel like a child again. Childhood stories feel so real and you actually get to meet Santa ! It is Like a fairytale. Very well decorated and great souviners! There is a functional post office to receive Letters for Santa written by children. The feeling is very nostalgic.
  • It's like a fairy tale page come true. A winter dreamland. A lovely post office where you can post cards to anyone living in any part of the world. Staff dressed up as elves, meeting a real life Santa Claus, nice eating place and a good souvenir shop.
  • I was sorely disappointed because everything was closed when we got there at 1730. The advertising does not make that apparent. The village and lights were great though and I was glad we got to see them. Since nothing was open we didn't get to see Santa.
  • The walk to Santa Claus was quite fun, but a digital download of two pictures and a video costs 45 euro! The village itself looks nice at night, but every interaction with animals will cost you. Think of this place as a Christmas mall. I don't recommend visiting, except if you have time to kill before your flight, as the airport is close-by.
