The 500 square metre ice rink is partially covered. This will contribute to the Happy Holidays feeling in Eindhoven, also when the weather is letting us down.

Parade of Torches
It’s a tradition in Eindhoven that the Parade of Torches will be organised for solidarity and peace on December 24th (Christmas Eve). In 1992, the Parade of Torches took place for the very first time when migrants were attacked in the German village of Sollingen. Ever since that incident, the parade focuses on peace, freedom and solidarity. Each year, thousands of people come together at the Wilhelminaplein to draw attention to the diversity of the Eindhoven community.
