Deep in the woods, or shall we say the Rivierenhof park in the Antwerp district of Deurne, there is a fairytale house. It's a place where world-famous fairy tales are told, sometimes with the little help of local actors or storytellers who will bring a child's fantasy, and yours to life while you are in this cuddly mysterious place in Antwerp's biggest park.
You can find the fairy tale house on the main promenade, near the castle Rivierenhof. Given the limited space, only up to 25 listeners are allowed into the house. The stories are told in Dutch and there is a small commission to pay if you want to participate in the storytelling. Most of the storytelling is done on Sunday afternoon. Of course, the entrance of the park is free and worthwhile to visit when you are in the neighborhood.
The fairy tale house was once a servant's house for the nearby Rivierenhof castle. Both can be visited together with the beautiful park surrounding them. There is also an open-air theater, a rose garden, a pond, and a children's farm located in the park.
