Theme park De Efteling

Europalaan 1, 5171 KW Kaatsheuvel


A magical theme park

Efteling Holland is one of Europe's leading theme parks. Efteling is a very enchanting theme park that can compete with the famous Disneyland! Efteling used to be open only in summer and during winter holidays (Winter Efteling ) only, but meanwhile Efteling offers many indoor attractions and it's open all year round!

The Efteling fairytale forest

Small kids will love the adorable fairytale forest with castles, gnome houses, dragons and trolls. In the Efteling magic forest 26 interactive fairytales are recounted, such as Snow white, the Chinese Nightingale, the Sleeping beauty, the Dancing shoes, the Little red riding hood, Hansel and Gretel, the Wolf and the seven kids and of course Cinderella.

Attractions for young and old

Efteling offers top attractions which are suitable for the entire family. The old steam train takes you to all attractions within the Efteling theme park, such as the 19th century steam powered merry-go-round, the horsemen show Raveleijn and Monsieur Cannibale's simmering pots that will spin you around and around. Efteling is best known for its giant family attractions such as Fata Morgana, Dream Flight and Pagode. Don't go home without having seen the spectacular water show Aquaruna and maybe you have the guts to enter the haunted castle...

Ultracool roller coasters!

For youth and adults, Efteling offers a couple of attractions, that are simply sensational! Experience the rotating House Villa Volta or ride the Piraña whitewater or the bobsleigh track. Try not tho get sick in the Half Moon swinging ship or of course in the numerous roller coasters. At Vogel Rok you ride in the dark, the Flying Dutchman roller coaster blasts you through the water or maybe the super fast Python is your choice. Joris en de draak is a very fast double wooden roller coaster. Efteling's latest roller coaster is the exciting Baron 1898, with a huge free dive!

" Efteling is an outstanding nice park. We want to thank the incredibly nice and always friendly employees there. Also the park seems to be maintained pretty well, as it is in a good condition. Finally Efteling has a really welcoming atmosphere and we enjoyed the woods inside the park. So lovely! We hope that this park has the best years still in front of it! Outstanding! Superb! Really really good!"

" Amazing place to go, I live in the Netherlands myself and been to this place multiple times now. A quick tip for all people who don't like big lines. You should go on a Sunday in the winter. The longest line I got took about 30 minutes. Make sure to make a good plan what you want to visit, it's a big park."

" One of the best amusement parks I have ever been to. The kids had lots of fun. It isn't too big and you can do all the good rides in one day. It is less international than the Disney parks, which means you won't hear a lot of English, but if you are open minded that should not be a problem as everyone is super nice."

" The Efteling is one of the best parks from Holland, even from Europe. It's quite big and has expended a lot and is still expanding. There is a big parking lot. Parking isn't free. The park is really beautiful and good for all ages, the scenery and slow rides for kids, the intense rides for teens and adults. Really recommend coming here!"

" There was so much to do and see ! It was a beautiful place that was very inclusive. The rides were very cool and we'll designed, but my favourite part had to be the Indoor and outdoor ice skating :') it was so beautiful. I wish I had time to see more of the park and we spent 8 hours there :'0 I would recommend this to family's and tourists alike! Great place"
