Some of the grounds around Castle de Haar are repurposed since last year, which unfortunately results in less available parking space. We advise you to buy your parking tickets well in advance if you want to make use of the Elfian parking area, and be present as early as possible.
If the Elfian Parking area is filling up, priority will be given to the people who can present a pre-purchased parking ticket. Without this pre-purchased parking ticket, you run a larger risk of getting referred to the nearest large non-Elfia parking space, from where you’ll have to travel by public transport.

Where to buy parking tickets and how do they work:
Parking tickets are available for purchase here.
The cost of a parking ticket is €8,- and tickets are sold per day. Tickets have a validity of one stay at the parking area. You’ll have to present a new parking ticket every time you leave the parking area by car. This means that if you leave halfway through the day and you return, you’ll need a second parking ticket.
Visitors of the Elfia Campground will be offered a parking space in an area close to the campground.
