During the dark days around Christmas, the Fraeylemaborg in Slochteren provides a sparkling light in the darkness which every year draws hundreds of visitors, who go there to sample the ambiance and charm of the exceptional activities that are held in the month of December.
From a small-scale Swedish Christmas market to Christmas splendour and candle-lit evenings, a visit to this ancient Groningen estate house makes a profound impression on people of any age during these days. Nostalgia and candlelight guarantee a wonderful event.
The Swedish Christmas market is a small-scale market in the farm restaurant and is held on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 December from 11 am.
‘Christmas splendour at Fraeylema’ is an event that is held between 12 and 27 December, during which students of the TerraNext from Eelde show how you can create a beautiful and original Christmas gift. All visitors can draw inspiration for their decorations at home.
A candlelight evening is always a guaranteed success for parents with (young) children. The evening includes a guided tour of the candlelit Groningen estate house, which makes you go back centuries in time. The forecourt is illuminated no less fairy tale-like.
Booking for the Candlelight evening is required and can be done by telephone: +31 (0)598-421568.
