Welcome to the annual Sinterklaas Vathorst parade. Once again we get to walk along with Sinterklaas. Estimated attendees: 4000 to 6000, based on last year, and depending on the weather.
Saturday 25th of November in Amersfoort Vathorst
Our base of operations is ‘Foortse Brug’ in Amersfoort. Please keep in mind this building is new, and many navigation applications, including Google Maps, do not have this location just yet!
Get off the train at Station Amersfoort Vathorst. De ‘Foortse Burg’ is 650 meter from the Station. The map included shows where to go.
Just accross the ‘Foortse Burg’, there is a newly built GymXL
Best way to go there is drive towards station Amersfoort Vathorst, from there, take the parallel road next to the track.
