Easter in Holland
Apr. 4, 2021 - Apr. 5, 2021, All of Holland
In addition to traditional Easter activities with the family, many Easter festivals are organised in Holland. One such festival is Paaspop, a three-day music event in Schijndel (Noord-Brabant) that has drawn a huge audience to hear dozens of bands perform on several stages each year since 1978. You could also go see the ‘Easter races’ on the Zandvoort race track, which mark the beginning of the national racing season.
Easter is closely linked with the Matthäus Passion! If you are in one of the big cities during Easter, you should really visit one of the wonderful concert halls at which this extraordinary piece of music is performed. It will make for an impressive experience!
In addition to lots of food, there is a tradition in Holland to hide real painted or chocolate Easter eggs for children, which they then have to find. Another tradition is to decorate eggs with children before Easter Sunday.
