If you have small kids, this is the place to take them for a great day out in the park. The build quality is excellent and very clean. The price is also reasonable, especially compared to Euro Disney.... In terms of rides.... nothing very challenging and more geared for the smaller crowd. But if you have small kids, this is...

We try to go to the efteling at least once each year and each time we have a lot of fun. The variety of attractions is so great and it even depends on what you want to do how you fill your day. In the last 30 years i visited the park frequently and the park has really grown a... More

Coming from the Southern Hemisphere, we couldn't even imagine a theme park as amazing as this. There was plenty of car parks which is lucky because it is apparently always very busy. The queue to get in moved fast, especially if you prebook your tickets online, or at the supermarket with the voucher. Due to the size of the park,... More

The park gives you both rollercoasters and stuff for kids. There's a good atmosphere and the park is well maintained. Tickets are expensive at €36 and the same goes for parking €10 and drinks & food. It can be busy so plan your visit!

The Efteling is beautiful and so unique. I have had the privilege of visiting it for the last few years. The park is so relaxing to walk through with all the beautiful gardens, fountains, buildings and peaceful music. So many attractions, and such a huge variety. Definitely something for all ages!! The Fairytale Forest (Sprookjesbos) is a very famous part... More

What a joy it was to come back here 21 years after my last visit with my wife and almost 4 year old son in tow. Many things hadn't changed but some new features were in place. This really is a place to just be a kid again. If you are at all cynical and have no sense of fun... More

We visited Efteling for 2 days, with our 2 daughters, aged 6 and 9. It was a great experience all round and can defintely recommend this park. The rides were "as good or better than disneyland paris" according to our two anyway. Queues were not very long, despite ther being quite a few school tours, as we visited in June.... More

Having been in De Efteling many times over the years, it is great to see how the park stays innovative without losing its original charm. As an adult I still enjoy walking through the fairytale forest! This is really a theme park for everyone, no matter if you are 1 or 100, De Efteling will have something just right for... More
