Efteling, Kaatsheuvel

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.

  • As always, Efteling does not disappoint. It's quite magical, with lights and bonfires and icerink. Something to make November a bit cheerful.  more »
  • We have visited the Efteling amusement park several times, but this time for the first time in winter. The park was beautifully decorated, there were choirs everywhere singing Christmas carols, with small fireplaces and ice skating rink. The ice palace in the large tent also offered additional seating, food, drink and slides for the children. Highly recommended and something for everyone, whether friends, couples or families. 5 stars also for the very friendly and eager staff.

  • Great place to visit with family and kids. Very well maintained and planned. Plenty of restaurants and stalls for food and drink. Some options for vegetarians. I suppose Efteling tried to provide better options than most other amusement parks. As a vegan you're better off getting your own food.
  • 1 day is not enough. Even if the park is quiet. Would advise to stay a night in the hotel. Very fun park, good breakfast. Would go there way more often if possible.
