Our fourth visit here. It is such a beautiful park. The only disappointment, as in most European theme parks, is people pushing in. Also, as De Efteling is so focused towards young children, why does the park allow smoking in the ride queues?

I mean here green in the more traditional sense of lots of trees, flowers and grass -- for me this made it a more relaxing visit than the typical disney visit. Compared to disney the only downside I noted was that they don't have a system for timed arrivals at popular activies so that one has to wait on fairly... More

This is definitely the best theme park I've been to in Europe. It's the 4th biggest in Europe by attendance but since it occupies a huge area it doesn't feel cramped. It's charming, wonderfully landscaped, great value for money and relatively uncommercialised. The rides are great and everything feels just right. Would definitely go for this over its Parisian rival,... More

My partner brought me here and I am glad that he did. He was taken here as a child over 45 years ago and it made a huge impression on him and it remains a great attraction to this day. Efteling is special because of its originality and appeal for children and adults of all ages. It has lots of... More

Visited with my 4 year old daughter just before Easter. Does not suffer from its 60 years; on the contrary. Old school fairy tales which retain their old world edge as opposed to the sanitised, new world Disney. It is really well done all around. Magical, technically impressive, friendly and clean. Great value for money. Well organised. Only small minus... More

Activities for all ages, great rollercoasters, but also beautiful fairy take park set up in the forest for the younger ones. Better bring own food and drinks and go for a picnic in the parks, cause otherwise it'll be an expensive day out as the entrance fee is already full-on!

We took our children ages (3, 2 and 7 months) for a day out at this park. Before going, we had never even heard of this place so we weren't too sure what to expect. How could I have never known of this place and it's been around since 1952?! It did not disappoint as there was something for everyone.... More

Never fails to delight. Something for all ages and a wide range of attractions. Our granddaughter loved the exciting rides but also the Fairy tale wood. A day is just too short.
