Explore a world of wonders

To experience a host of enchanting attractions and thrilling rides, set among idyllic natural surroundings, it's time you discovered Efteling theme park and resort. Just 75 minutes outside of Amsterdam, Efteling is Europe’s third largest theme park.

There is plenty to keep daredevils on their toes, with rides that twist, turn and flip you upside down, including the Baron 1898 ride, that plunges you down a 37.5m free fall at a speed of 90km/hour. Even the bravest kids will find their hair standing on end!

Little ones are well looked after too, with merry-go-rounds and rides especially for tots. There's also Efteling's famous Fairytale Forest to explore. The forest is home to all the characters from your favourite fairytales, including the newest resident Pinocchio.


The enchanting Hansel and Gretel House at Efteling

Journey through Efteling's maze, explore the haunted house and make sure you catch one of the fabulous live shows performed daily. Choose from the Aquanura water show, where you’ll see a stunning display of fountains accompanied by fire, light and music or the Raveleijn live show which features a five headed, fire-breathing dragon! Whichever show you catch, it'll be a fitting end to an enchanting day.

Incredible facilities

Inside the park, head to Polles Keuken, where kids will love decorating their own pancakes. In 2014, the restaurant was awarded a Guinness World Record for the highest pancake stack, an achievement that is still unbeaten.

You can spend the night at the Efteling Hotel in one of the well equiped family rooms or perhaps one of the unique themed suites, each with a tale to tell – and a few surprises too.

Efteling Village Bosrijk is a spacious holiday park set in woodland offering a choice of accommodation from woodland cottages, lakeside lodges and Gate House apartments. The village is within easy walking distance to the park and guests can access to the park 30 minutes before it opens to the public. Bosrijk is great for self-catering, although there is a restaurant on-site, plus the option to get pizza delivered to your door. The Bosrijk Village also has a pool, a children’s storytelling area, woodland to explore and bike hire. The peaceful woodland setting is the perfect place to relax after a busy day of adventures.
