We were visiting friends in the Netherlands so decided to add a visit to Efteling as part of our itinerary. It's about 1 hour and a quarter from Schipol without any heavy traffic (which can be very bad around Amsterdam at rush hour). I would recommend staying at the on-site hotel if you can afford it - it means you... More

nice and lovely detailed Theme Park. great rollercoaster, lovely themed. weather was a bit rainy. we had the deluxe entry package. a bid sad was that the people at the White horse restaurant didn´r really know what to do with that voucher (what was included) but after a short discussion everything was fine. All where very friendly.

Prepare to stay at least a full day, but better yet a couple of days. Best park I have ever visited. Must see or do things too plenty to mention.

Best amusement park ever! A beautiful park for everyone, young, old, daredevils and cautious persons. Park has aesthetic that is very pleasing, one can come into the park just for a walk since it has beautiful walkways aligned with greens and flowers. Music for every section of the park but no blaring pop music, music carefully selected and composed which... More

Go on a "Zomeravond, Negen Pleinen Festijn". A lot of fun and entertainment on nine different places throughout the park.

This theme park is tailor made for little kids. The emphasis is on fairy tales, though there are rides and other forms of entertainment as well. You will not be able to see the whole park in one day, so you will either have to come back another time or spend the night. A special treat are the talking (in... More

This is the best thematic theme park I have ever visited. It is especially nice for the little ones. The story-telling is great, as well as the landscapes. The rollercoaster is not really special - but that's not why you should come here anyway. I would advise to come outside weekend and vacation days, because it might be very busy.... More

There was a time when the children still children. Liked to run anywhere they go. Wanted to try anything they want. But at the end we ended up going to the playground because they were too small, too short for a lot of the attractions. Almost 2 decades later, we came to visit again. The children came along with their... More
