Copy of Dutch architecture - surprisingly real

We spent one evening and half a day in Huis ten Bosch. We stayed at Henna Hotel just outside one of the gates to the park. The park was much larger than we expected and also much... read more

My mother and I were traveling to Fukuoka, Japan, in June of this year, one of the tourist attractions is Housesenburg. Firstly, when we entered the gate, we saw that the buildings were built in a continental style, just as we travel in abroad. There are many shops, such as jewelry stores, customer service centers etc. And there are geographically... More

I just happened to "stumble upon" this theme park one weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The entire park was decked-out with lots of lights that you can see from a distance. If you go up the Horio Tower, you can see a large QR code on the ground that you can photograph during the day. I recommend seeing the light... More

Pros: - Atmosphere with the European setting makes it feels like a holiday trip especially as an Asian - Amazing lighting display during that winter event - Unforgettable BBQ dinner Cons: - Pretty much everything is in Japanese - More costly than we expected - For activities, nothing much to shout about. Except for nice strolls around. Had made a... More

Stayed in The Grand Europe Hotel. Couldn't get a table for dinner in the hotel or the park without a long wait, which is unacceptable at these prices. When we arrived (around 3pm) supply of bicycles/quadricycles did not meet demand; so we had to walk. A lot. I could have done with a wheelchair, but there were none of those... More

It's a huge European park, with not a cheap entrance fee. Well, you think that entrance fee means all attractions are free? Sorry, this is not Disneyland or Universal studio. The more interesting ones, even Ferris Wheel, needs extra charge! If you choose to visit this place, stay through the night. The lights around the park is something worth to... More

Was unsure what to expect given mixed reviews online but was surprised by how charming the place is. It really feels like you are in Europe - the architecture is superbly done. The light show at the Huis Ten Bosch palace was beautiful. The attractions (rides, shows etc) were not very appealing but just to spend time walking around, taking... More

We spent one evening and half a day in Huis ten Bosch. We stayed at Henna Hotel just outside one of the gates to the park. The park was much larger than we expected and also much more "real" when it comes to the Dutch architecture, including materials, colors and feel to it. Luckily I was there with a Dutch... More

A theme park with a Dutch theme. It's a disappointment as there are not a lot of activities to do apart from a water park and a few iconic sites. You pay a fee to get into the park and some activities needs extra charges as well. Not a good selling point.
