Avoid week-ends. During the week the average queing line (during my visit) was max 5 minutes. during saturday... some times 20 minutes. When possible, attend the water show at nightfall... impressive light and sound show.

Just got back from the park. It was wonderful! You should definitely visit this park. It has plenty of different attractions both for adults and for little children. Roller-coasters are super fun, if you have guts try the Python and the Dragon. The Pagoda will give you a wonderful view on the park and its surroundings. There is also a... More

Visited Efteling a few times now and I can honestly say I fall in love with the place a little more each time we go. Most recently visited at Christmas last year and we had a fantastic time. This was the first time we had been in the winter and we loved to see all the added winter extras such... More

I loved this place. This place is also for adults who loves fairy tales and beautiful details. But be aware of the long queues.

The Efteling is The Netherland's biggest attraction park. Fortunately not a Disney experience, but a true genuine Dutch experience. Worth visiting with friends and/or kids!

For the young and the young at heart ... The fairy tale forest (SprookjesBos) was as I remembered it 50 years ago .. Beautifully maintained but the essence of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale dioramas designed by Anton Piek is something very special! No wonder Walt Disney loved it! We shall return because there is far too much to cover... More

This park has something for all ages. The queues in the morning can be a bit off putting, but if you wait until later in the day to do the BIG rides, the queues are far shorter and it means you get to cram loads more in to your day. The park is really clean and nicely spaced out, but... More
