Efteling is a world class theme park, beautifully themed with amazing attention to detail. We were in constant awe at all the different worlds we were taken to. This place is too much to take in, in one day! Have just discovered they also have a themed hotel and theatre shows! (Wish I could have experienced those) I would recommend... More

This is probably the most beautiful amusement park I have been to. That alone is worth a visit, but the attractions here are really original. It seems this park loves dioramas. Many of their attractions center around such displays. The storybook village is amazing even as a visiting adult without kids. I probably spent 2 hours in that section alone.... More

Efteling opened during Sylvester night and it was great. The attractions of winter efteling were accessible but on top of that you get a fireworks show at midnight and a glass of sparkling wine and a Dutch donut (oliebol). There are bands playing on several spots of the park where you can dance and a bonfire at every corner. I... More

The winter efteling is a very busy venue. It toke us 3h to get there (normally 1h) and many attractions were closed. You are better off visiting it during the week day to get money's worth. The atmosphere was good, they did a lot of decorating and the winter fair was really nice.

I took my 9 year old daughter here during the half term holidays. We stayed for 3 days / 2 nights in the VIP Mansion Apartments. The Apartment we stayed in was fantastic value for money and had some lovely finishing touches such as night caps! The walk to the park from the accommodation was approx 15 minutes. The park...

Don't waste your money on Winter Efteling. We called the day before going to see if attractions and park were open despite the snowfall a few days earlier. They woman on the phone answered "yes", so we bought our tickets and drove to the Efteling the next morning. We waited 2 full, long hours just to park the car! The... More
