Explore the most magical theme park in Europe
Want to give your children (and yourself!) an unforgettable weekend filled with magic? Then this one's for you! Jump on a short 40-minutes flight to The Netherlands, where transfers are waiting to take you and the fam straight to the fairytale land of the Efteling. Wave to Rapunzel in her castle, take a ride in an old fashioned wooden rollercoaster, visit the talking tree, take a chairlift through a dream world of fairies and trolls and score some poffertjes (mini pancakes) for your afternoon snack. And after a day of adventure, resort to your luxury comfort rooms in the Efteling hotel, which is only a 5 minutes walk from the theme park.
The traditional, fairytale-themed amusement park features elves, trolls and talking parrots, and its woodland setting and new hotel make it ideal for a family holiday. The theme park is best suited for young families (with children up to the age of 12) as most of the rides are more aesthetically pleasing than adrenaline-inducing.
At Efteling, nature plays such a starring role that it’s easy to forget this is a theme park. "Its old-fashioned allure, based on traditional Brothers Grimm fairytales, is a refreshing change from modern theme parks", according The Guardian no less. Treat your kids to a weekend full of magic, adventure and fairytales!
