The Efteling, a traditionally famous entertainment park in the Netherlands. Known by the Dutch children. But be aware; it is for adults too! The quality of the park is really unique in Europe. There is so much attention for details. It's so clean! There is staff everywhere, the entrance price is absolutely acceptable if you consider what they do for... More

Visited here as part of a long weekend in the Netherlands and it is one of the most charming theme parks I have ever been to. Efteling is the biggest theme park in the Netherlands and features a vast array of rides for all ages ranging from the likes of the comical Festival Carnivale, enchanted Dream Flight to the more...

Our whole party - ranging from 79 to 4 years old - really enjoyed Efteling. The empahsis is on traditional fairytales and "experience" rides, which was a refreshing change to the Disneyland focus on characters and their films. The fairytale land is beautifully put together - and totally real - no plastic in sight - so whilst DLP might have... More

This is your non-Disney take on the theme park theme. This place is much more REAL - much less a plastic model of a real thing. The rides are great. Kids of all ages (7 to 44) found lots of stuff to enjoy. We got a busy day on the shoulder season and did not manage to do all the... More

It is also one of the oldest in Europe! Very good for a family day, few rollercoasters that I would consider adrenalinic, and a lot of games for an easy day! The plus is given by the fact that this theme park is completely surrounded by a forest. One of the biggest theme park I ever saw!

I visit the Efteling about 3 times a year, and every time I cannot wait till my next visit. It is a complete experience in which design, music and decoration are perfectly combined. The Efteling combines intriguing dark rides, thrilling coasters, and an astonishing fairy tale forest. A trip in the Netherlands is simply not complete without visiting this place.

I spent a day here with my 5 year old daughter and was pleasantly surprised. Firstly, the place itself it simply so nice to be in. Every part of the park has been thought about to its very last detail. In my opinion, unlike places such as Legoland and Disneyland, here it actually feels like they want to make the... More

I first came here circa 30 years ago with my children, and we enjoyed it so much, that we came over a period of some years, even staying in the original Efteling park bungalows!! We returned 7 years ago with my daughter and husband, grandchild, and some friends. Everyone was gobsmacked, and we have just returned again last week, with... More
