The ‘world’s biggest Christmas tree’ will light up this year
The world’s ‘biggest Christmas tree’ – the 372-metre high transmission mast at Lopik in IJsselstein – will be lit up again this year now the organisers have managed to raise the necessary EUR 65,000.
The Lopik tree has been illuminated since 1992 but financial problems mean some years are skipped.
When the cables stabilising the transmission mast have been hung with lights, the tree can be seen up to 30 kilometres away.
The lights will be switched on December 13 and turned off on January 7.
