Events & Activities in Zandvoort aan Zee

Zandvoort, more than just the beach

Of course, many people know the extensive Zandvoort and Bloemendaal beach with its beach pavilions where you can eat well and where many parties take place. Zandvoort is also world famous for the Zandvoort Circuit with its formula 1 past and Heineken Dutch Grand Prix future.

But in the small, intimate and cozy village embedded between the protected dune areas and the beach, there is also a lot to do: Grand Cafés, pubs, a cinema, indoor fair and casino in the colorful Circus Zandvoort, the Holland Casino, a bowling and trampoline park in Centerparcs and much more. You can play golf in the dunes at Open Golf Zandvoort. Many events are organized throughout the year and many activities take place. Check the VVV agenda to see what is taking place. In Zandvoort, the different events follow in quick succession. Especially in the summer months you will find visitors from different backgrounds.

Zandvoort Circuit

The Zandvoort Circuit is also a must for racing and car enthusiasts. If there is a race weekend, you can purchase a weekend pass to see all the races, or else consider whether you prefer to get into a Lamborghini or a Porsche to drive a few laps on the renewed race track, that is also possible! Right next to the Circuit Zandvoort you will find Slotemakers Slipschool, do your anti-slip course there in one day. Because the slip school is adjacent to the Zandvoort aan Zee circuit, a combination is also possible! First an anti-slip course and then increased driving skills at Circuit Zandvoort.

Fun in any weather

  • You like swimming, in the sea! But you can also dive into the swimming paradise of Centerparcs.
