Efteling, Kaatsheuvel

Must see · Theme Park · Water / Amusement Park
Once a quaint nature park, Efteling has grown to become a large, fantasy theme park. When it opened in 1952 with a playground and fairytale forest, no one could have predicted that it would evolve to be twice the size of the original Disneyland. While the park remains true to its origins by incorporating elements of fairy tales and folklore into its attractions and entertainment, it now has a total of 36 rides, including four water slides. Take your family on a trip through mythical worlds, enjoy the park's renowned greenery and gardens, and share in the excitement of roller coasters and thrill rides.

  • Forget Amsterdam, if you are looking for an amazing day featuring Dutch culture this is the place to be! I used to come here when I was 8, still go here now that I am 20 and I will probably still be going when I'm 80. (Disclaimer: I do actually love Amsterdam as well)
  • Best amusement park in the Netherlands, perhaps even Europe. Nowhere else will you find the real dutch "gezelligheid" combined with such a unique magical atmosphere. Suited for all ages and group sizes. During winter the park is dressed in icicles, snow, and campfires. Cottages serving seasonal food and drinks can be found nearly everywhere, occasionally accompanied by jolly carolers. A must-visit during the holidays!
  • So many great things to see and do with the little ones! As an adult i must say i enjoyed it too! Will definitely have to go back as it is so vast we only saw 1/4 of it this time.
  • This is one of the best theme parks I have visited. There are thrill rides and family rides. My 14 year old son had a great time. We spent an entire day there and still did not get to every ride. We cannot wait to go back again.
  • Is great for holidays My kids really really really really really liked it. They said they want to go again and make you I have an idea. They not like you to go again. But we are going next week. Because I love love love love love love love love love love the food. Really really loves the Kebab Pizza was nice and we actually got a tree that has a face on it.
