Today a theme park is hardly surprising for anyone. But the Efteling amusement park near Tilburg fascinates both children and adults. It is the most popular amusement park in Europe and one of the world-biggest. It opened over half a century ago, in 1952, and still receives over four million guests every year.

At first, Efteling was not that big. It was completely devoted to old European fairytales. Characters of Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, and Hans Andersen came to life here. Gradually, the park grew, the number of attractions and themed zones increased. Today it occupies over 270 hectares.

So, what does the most famous amusement park in Europe offer its guests?

The first thing to know is that the park is divided into four kingdoms: North, South, East, and West. It makes it much easier to find your way around and not get lost among attractions.

Snow White and Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty live in small castles here. Hansel and Gretel meet guests in their gingerbread house. Trolls and dragons lie in wait in the magic forest.

Lovers of more modern entertainment will find boating ramps, highways, even a railway station, allowing you to go around the whole park on a beautiful steam train.

Extreme lovers won’t be disappointed either: there are six kinds of roller coasters prepared for them! Crazy turns, loops, climbs, free fall at a speed of 90 km/h – the Efteling Park has all of them.

Word of advice: when you come to the park, don’t forget to ask for the Efteling map. Firstly, it will be much easier to navigate in this large area with it in hand. Secondly, all attractions are marked there with the indicated nearby danger level. If you are together with children wishing to thrill their parents and themselves, but you can't allow it, it will be clear how to best avoid a dangerous adventure.
