Want to lose yourself in a fantasy
glade, experience a 37m plunge or be
amazed by a ﬁve-headed dragon?
Then head to Efteling - the thirdlargest theme park in Europe - where
there's something for all ages to enjoy

Meet your favourite characters
and the talking Fairytale Tree in the
Fairytale Forest, or get an adrenaline

Don't miss the Ravelijn live show, with

day is never enough, so why not stay
overnight at the Efteling Hotel?
Choose a comfortable family room

the enormous buffet breakfast before
a fun-packed day in the park.
Alternatively, stay at Efteling's Bosrijk
Village, with a choice of self-catering
woodland cottages, lakeside lodges
(some with saunas), traditional Dutch
village square houses and apartments.
There is a mini supermarket, but you
can also order a pizza - delivered to
your door by bicycle - or enjoy a meal
in the rustic Eethuys restaurant.
This summer not only sees the launch
of a fantastic dark ride, Symbolica:
Palace of Fantasy, but also the natureinspired Loonsche Land Hotel and
Holiday Village to keep the fun going!
