Now THIS is what an amusement park should be like. Clean, fantastical, beautifully maintained, gorgeous flowers, amazing and unique attractions, unbelievable theater show. The Efteling is quite possibly one of my favorite places to visit and I DO NOT like amusement parks. But this place is run right. The only thing I hate are all the smokers!! Way too many... More

I've been to several Disneylands across the globe and this park is a decent competitor, though I felt it is aimed more at children than grown-ups, whereas Disneylands are somewhat balanced. Still, there is a lot to do, some rides are very cool and one day is probably not enough. Two things that really need improvement: - organization of quees... More

I'm Spanish, my husband is dutch and is the 5th time we visited the Efteling, but the 1st time we've been there in the winter. It was a totally different experience. The decoration was so nice, they had many big fire pits around the park which was very cozy. They also had groups of singers that would come from time... More

Efteling during the winter is basically the same as during the regular season. Apart from the possibility of rides being closed due to the weather. During my visit all the rollercoasters were closed except for The Baron. Even though it wasn't freezing or raining. Check the website before visiting. It was also the last show of Raveleijn and there were... More

We went to the winter Efteling and loved the decorations of the park. Unfortunately all of the outside rollercoaster were closed due to cold weather (it wasn't raining). When at one point they opened 'Baron' the single riders cue pointed out 40 min, the normal cue said 60 min. We went in the single riders cue but after waiting for... More

The Efteling is a fantastic theme park, where fairy tales are not only magnificently shown in the forest of fairy tales. Every attraction has its own story line, completely shown, from the decor, waiting lines up onto the music. We love the Baron! Super thrill, also to watch.

Really good family theme park! Me and my girlfriend went on Christmas day from Amsterdam. All you need to do is catch the intercity train for about an hour to hertogenbosch. Then catch the bus (800) for around 15 minutes. Train was around €60 for 2 Bus was around €7 for 2
