The Mill of The Elves opens its doors again this year from 25 November 2022 to 8 January 2023 in the city of Trikala, Thessaly, with a renewed programme of activities for young and older visitors.
A Christmas Park out of a fairy tale, that is like no other. Every year a new theme that puts us in the Christmas mood and makes us all feel like children. Games, activities, themed crafts, heroes, attractions, and food await visitors again this year.
It was December 9, 2011 when Santa Claus transformed the Mill of Matsopoulos, in Trikala, into the largest Christmas theme park in Greece, the “Mill of the Elves“.
The old fireplaces took the lead and since then they have been working non-stop, with the sole purpose of providing joy to young and old. As every year, this year too, something new is happening at the “Mill of the Elves”… A new story that will travel young and old to a fairytale and magical world!
A little girl, Alice, while playing in the countryside with her sister, saw a white rabbit running, shouting that it was late. Alice followed it to the bank of a river, and then entered the nest where the White Rabbit had previously entered. But she discovers that there is no gravity and floats inside the nest. When he reached the floor of the nest, she saw a tiny door that has the gift of talking. Wanting to get through the door, the doorknob advised her to drink a potion that would make her small so she could fit through the door and find the White Rabbit.
Through fairy-tale journeys he met various heroes, Captain Dodo, The Mad Hatter, The Caterpillar, The Queen Dama Koopa with her card guards, The White Rabbit, The Cat and many others and ended up in the White Rabbit Hole, jumped in and found herself in the “Mill of The Elves”, where everything was beautiful, colorful, decorated and bright for Christmas. Santa Claus, the elves and all the heroes of the park welcomed her with joy, they treated her to chocolates and various sweets and she decided to stay with them this Christmas and tell them about the adventures she lived on this dream trip.
