Last week we've been to Efteling, because I always wanted to go there as I heard only good things about it and it was definitely worth the 5 hours drive one way and staying overnight. Even for me, who works in theme park business and I have seen some of them in different countries (also behind the scences), it was... More

I went to efteling for the second time and had a very good day on the good variety of attractions on offer. However while it competes well with the likes of Disney as a family park, it needs one major investment of a large coaster like tarron at phantasialand or shambhala at portaventura. If they were to do this it... More

The entrance to the park very impressive leading you to believe you're entering a truly magical place. It was very spacious and that's not necessarily a great thing. When you have children with you, it can lead to some complaints when travelling from one area to another without many things in between to capture their imagination or gauge their interest.... More

We visited this fairytale-themed park in April with Dutch friends. The surroundings are very pleasant with a beautiful array of colorful tulips all throughout. Although some of the attractions would have been more interetsing if we could have understood the pre-ride build up of the fairytale in the ante-rooms, we still enjoyed everything very much. No small children were with... More

The park is an ever-growing fantasy land, with quite a selection of attractions. They have been open for 65 years now, and they are now open 365 days a year. It is a good idea to beat the crowds by arriving early. There are busses from Tilburg Station that are cheap and plentiful. The park also has a very large... More

I visited Efteling many years ago as a child and I was amazed. As an adult I was still amazed and so was our 3-year-old daughter. Efteling is different from other 'theme parks' - the natural setting is a major part so there are loads of green spaces, lakes, flowers and woodland. It's also 65 years old so there's some... More
