Once a quaint nature park, Efteling has grown to become a large, fantasy theme park. When it opened in 1952 with a playground and fairytale forest, no one could have predicted that it would evolve to be twice the size of the original Disneyland. While the park remains true to its origins by incorporating elements of fairy tales and folklore into its attractions and entertainment, it now has a total of 36 rides, including four water slides. Take your family on a trip through mythical worlds, enjoy the park's renowned greenery and gardens, and share in the excitement of roller coasters and thrill rides.

Lovely amusement park with much greenery, a fairytale forest and some exhilarating rollercoaster rides (the baron is quite something, but also the python is fun). Far less overwhelmingly commercial...

Forget Amsterdam, if you are looking for an amazing day featuring Dutch culture this is the place to be! I used to come here when I was 8, still go here now that I am 20 and I will probably still be going when I'm 80. (Disclaimer: I do actually love Amsterdam as well)
Best amusement park in the Netherlands, perhaps even Europe. Nowhere else will you find the real dutch "gezelligheid" combined with such a unique magical atmosphere. Suited for all ages and group sizes. During winter the park is dressed in icicles, snow, and campfires. Cottages serving seasonal food and drinks can be found nearly everywhere, occasionally accompanied by jolly carolers. A must-visit during the holidays!
