6 December: Sinterklaas
6th of December
The house (huis van de Sint)
There are rooms where kids can practice walking on the roof and posting parcels down a chimney; visit the topsy turvy bathroom, chimney shaped toilet and rainbow-coloured bunkbeds belonging to the Zwarte Pieten; and, waiting in the garden, his real white horse that he rides over from Spain.
A band – the ‘Peatles’ – plays an afternoon concert to entertain the children while they wait.
The Huis van de Sint (Stationsstraat 85, Sint-Niklaas) is open 12 November –6 December every year Mon, Tue, Thu & Fri 4:00 PM–5:30 PM, Wed 2:00 PM–5:30 PM, Sat–Sun 10:00 AM–5:30 PM; free entrance; maximum age 7 years.
