As long as I can remember, me and my family have visited this amusement park. It is an authority in the Netherlands. Iconic is the fairy tale garden and the roller coaster "the Pyton". But the "Flying Dutchman" is my absolute favorite! The park is big and wide. There are a lot of picknick places to have your lunch and... More

Took the girlfriend here, she had a bad childhood, so I want to give her that childhood again now she's an adult. It might have been winter and raining but we still had an amazing time. It just has a magical atmosphere and the fairyland ride (not sure what it's called) made the g/f cry she loved it so much.... More

This is the best park in the whole world. Disneypark is great but this has more to offer! Disney is everywhere you the same. The Efteling makes every year (and every time) a bit different never boring. It is clean the people are great, great food, good things to do with little ones but also the teenagers. If you want...

I would say that this is my third favorite park in Europe (after Europa park and Disnayland). It is magical, with a lot of space for walking, a lot of trees etc. Kids love it. Spend here two days, so you do not have to rush. In August there is a lot of additional events in the park, with shows.... More

It is a great place to have fun especially if you take your small kinds. They love it. You can do so much and not so expensive either. Many rides and plenty places to rest and eat!! Different to Disney but if your family like this kind of things then try once at least once. We enjoyed for a day... More

I've been to Disneyland but there is something mysterious about the Efteling that just draws you in and puts it on a different level. The fact that its been around for so long... and that it has all the fairy tales you know and some new ones you didn't. The dancing water fountain show at the end is the cherry... More

This park has been improving ever since we first wen out there some 50 years ago . It is a garantee to pleasure for both young and adult. Moreover it covered in trees so you are always protectief from the sun. From the faire tale park theme, to differentst rollercoasters fun is insured.
