Inspired by the style of the Dutch painter Anton Piece the Efteling started its fairy tale park in the 1950ties. Now over 60 years later the park has grown immensely with attractions for young and old, a hotel, bungalow Park, a theater and a golf course. Regardless of the growth It has not lost touch with the original vibe and... More

Looking for the most beautiful fairy/amusement park? Go to the Efteling! I went yesterday, on the website honestly announced as a very busy day, so I knew about, but the organisation is so good that you did not feel it. Maximum waiting for the attractions I did was 20 minutes, although it was crowded. But, we never felt this way.... More

Last week we've been to Efteling, because I always wanted to go there as I heard only good things about it and it was definitely worth the 5 hours drive one way and staying overnight. Even for me, who works in theme park business and I have seen some of them in different countries (also behind the scences), it was... More

I went to efteling for the second time and had a very good day on the good variety of attractions on offer. However while it competes well with the likes of Disney as a family park, it needs one major investment of a large coaster like tarron at phantasialand or shambhala at portaventura. If they were to do this it... More

The entrance to the park very impressive leading you to believe you're entering a truly magical place. It was very spacious and that's not necessarily a great thing. When you have children with you, it can lead to some complaints when travelling from one area to another without many things in between to capture their imagination or gauge their interest.... More

We visited this fairytale-themed park in April with Dutch friends. The surroundings are very pleasant with a beautiful array of colorful tulips all throughout. Although some of the attractions would have been more interetsing if we could have understood the pre-ride build up of the fairytale in the ante-rooms, we still enjoyed everything very much. No small children were with... More
