Enjoy a supernatural skate off
What:Amsterdam Halloween Festival
When:28 – 31 October
This eclectic Halloween bonanza offers a range of eerie events for all ages.

Get spooked by the sea
Where: Ostend, Belgium
When: Until 6 November 2011
Each year the seaside town of Ostend transforms its historic Fort Napoleon into ‘Fort Fright’ for Europe’s largest Halloween celebration on the coast. The 19th century fort is distorted into a sinister stronghold giving visitors the chance to learn about it’s dark history, enjoy a spooky themed workshop or have their picture taken with a gruesome Napoleonic Pirate.
Eurolines offer return services to Bruges for £63 per person. Ostend is short journey by train, more information at: www.halloween-oostende.be
Take a trés traditionnelle tour of gothic Paris
Where: Across Paris
The French tend to resist the Americanised Halloween celebration, but Paris is still host to an array of supernatural spectacles. Thrill seeking tourists can visit the skeleton clad Catacombs, take a spooky ghost tour of the city or tour Paris’ famous gothic graveyard Père Lachaise. However, if you really want to embrace the American experience, opt for Disneyland Paris which hosts a month long (not so scary) celebration.
