Explore Efteling Park

Experience magical moments in one of the most beautiful outdoor parks in Europe. Efteling offers a unique concept of fairytale based stories and rides. The park is divided into different themes or regions, but all are connected by a magic and nostalgic charm. The little ones will enjoy the fairytales and merry-go-rounds, teens will enjoy the haunted mansion and rollercoasters and there are plenty of rides for the whole family. It is not only for kids - grown-ups who need a bit of magic and the occasional thrill in their everyday lives will love it too!

Our favourite attraction is the Efteling Wonderland, a crazy maze with hidden secrets, which was specially created for the 70th anniversary.

It is time to explore the world of Efteling, a magical theme park in the Netherlands, a special world for the young and older ones.
