Discover Efteling

Discover Efteling in spring as the entire park blossoms with the national tulip flower. The Enchanted Forest begins bursting with effusions of wildflowers and the warming weather makes for an idyllic boat trip.

Efteling is a world of adventures, where children and adults can experience fairy tales first-hand with whimsical forest creatures, deadly dragons, noble knights and more.


Rides and Shows

Witness the stunning choreographed tale of Raveleijn, where trained horsemen and swordsmen re-enact a family struggling to overthrow the evil overlord of a mythical land. With a fantasy fairy tale forest, featuring an animatronic tree which speaks and tells stories, and a host of singing mushrooms around it, children are sure to be enthralled. Symbolica: Palace of Fantasy plays on perception, proving nothing is as it seems. Clandestine passageways open into magical chambers, perfect for the whole family.
