Crazy dream world of Alice in Wonderland illuminates ZOO Antwerp

This winter, ZOO Antwerpen will light up the darkest days of the year with a spectacular light festival. Follow the white rabbit and dive into the delicious, crazy dream world of Alice in Wonderland. Look through the keyhole, eat lots of cake and grow bigger and smaller with a sip from the bottle or a bite from a colourful mushroom. Alice does it all in ZOO Wonderland. Add to that a big smiling Cheshire Cat and you get a crazy light festival that floods ZOO Antwerp with a warm glow of colour and light this winter. Come and enjoy the 18,000 lights and 320 figures during a magical light walk in the open air.

Buy your tickets for the Alice in Wonderland Light Festival via the website of ZOO Antwerp and immerse yourself this winter from December 3 to January 16 in the magic of the creators of China Light ZOO.
