The Vakantiebeurs: this edition extra fun for kids

It's Christmas vacation and that's the time when many people have time and desire to think about summer vacation. Inspiration at the Vakantiebeurs. And this year the Vakantiebeurs is extra fun for children. I get to give away tickets that allow you to go to the vacation fair for free.

Vacation inspiration at the vacation fair

Vacations we all want. Preferably as often and as long as possible. And when we get back home, we cannot stop talking about the beautiful beaches, the wonderful moments with the children and all the fine entertainment at our vacation destination. But just think about the anticipation; making plans for the next vacation. Ideas? Then the Vakantiebeurs in Utrecht from January 16 to 19 is the perfect place for this. And now also really an outing for the whole family, because kids can go on an adventure too.

Finding the dream vacation

Walking around the vacation fair is already fun, but now it's extra cool for kids. Think: diving in a diving tank, taking sailing lessons in a huge water tank, kayaking, supping; Plenty to do for young water sports enthusiasts and water rats at the 50th edition of Vakantiebeurs. But there is also plenty for adventurers to kiss, going on a discovery tour through the kids' route, stepping into the smallest Ferris wheel in the western hemisphere – with a view of "all of southern Europe" – and abseiling in the Camping by the Coast Zone. While you are getting informed about the most beautiful campsites in the French Pyrenees, the kids are venturing on an eight-meter high climbing wall.

But there is more at the fair

But there is much more at the vacation fair, how about a virtual walk through bustling New York, swimming with sharks, walking through the jungle and going on safari without travelling to another continent; in the Virtual Reality Street you can do it. In so-called 9D virtual reality seats, even conquer the Grand Canyon by boat and discover the exotic destination of Guam. A roller coaster ride takes you through the jungle, pyramids and an abandoned gold mine in the American desert. Travel provider TUI installs a real escaperoom.

The Kidsclub

The vacation fair also has its own Kids Club where there will be crafts and dancing in a mini disco on all days of the fair. Children will be introduced to vacation mascots such as Bollo and Koos Konijn, while on Sunday, January 19, the Kids Holiday Mascot Award 2020 will be presented by none other than child idol – singer and former member of boy band B-Brave – Kaj van der Voort.

Anniversary: 50 Years of the Holiday Fair

The 50th anniversary of Vakantiebeurs does not go unnoticed. Especially for this anniversary edition, a festival tent will be set up between hall 7 and hall 12 to celebrate 50 years of the Vakantiebeurs in the atmosphere of famous international festivals such as Brazilian carnival, St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg, etc. Patricks Day and Chinese New Year. With dragon dance, a kung fu show, samba dancers and a travelpub quiz. In short: entertainment guaranteed.

Vacation Fair


We are going to America next year. Here we are going to see the west coast and even though we have been here before, inspiration is always nice. Especially when in the meantime the boys can have a great time at the Kidsclub and enjoy all the fantastic adventure things they can do.
