Before contacting the organisation, please have a look at the frequently asked questions and answers below. Because we are currently very busy with the final preparations, answering a question may take up to 3 days.

We advise visitors to buy their parking tickets as much in advance as possible through the webshop.


  1. How much noise is made on the battlefield?

The cannons and muskets make a lot of noise when they are fired. It may therefore be desirable to provide earplugs. These will be for sale at the battlefield but also in the webshop when buying a ticket. Also take this into account if you are visiting the Battlefield with (young) children.

  1. Dogs and the Battle of Grolle, do they go together?

We advise you not to bring your pet to the Battle of Grolle. Dogs can get upset by the loud bangs on the battlefield. In addition, it is undesirable for them to defecate on or near the goods, buildings or encampments. We would appreciate your understanding in this matter.

  1. Where will the Battle of Grolle take place?

The battle itself will take place on the battlefield, about 10 minutes walk from the centre.

  1. Is the Molenberg accessible?

Yes, the Molenberg can be reached via the Ruurloseweg-Ziekenhuisstraat.

  1. What do I need to bear in mind if I visit the Battle of Grolle with my child(ren)?

Beware of loud bangs on the battlefield. This may frighten some children. Earplugs can be purchased at the battlefield and in the webshop.

Make sure your child has your mobile number with them. In case your child loses sight of you and is looking for you, the organisation can reach you quickly.


  1. Can I bring my car or bike into the centre?

During the event you have to park your car or bike outside the canal.

You drive towards Groenlo and follow the signs you see to the nearest parking location. It is not allowed to park at other locations than indicated. A shuttle bus runs every 15 minutes from our parking spots.

  1. I am disabled, is de Slag accessible for me?

There is a disabled parking space at the Source in Groenlo. Its navigation address is Buitenschans 3. At the battlefield there are specific wheelchair spaces to witness the Battle. In the town centre there are wood chips on the street. Experiences from previous editions are that this causes no/ few problems for wheelchair users. We will do our best to make the event accessible to them as well.

Yes, in principle this is allowed. However, we kindly ask you to send us an email after the event with a link to your online photo album containing (a selection) of your photos. Send these to and please state whether we are allowed to use these photos free of rights in our communications.

No, this is strictly prohibited and we will report any violations immediately to the police. A drone pilot selected by the organisation has been granted exemption from this rule.
