De Efteling is a fantasy themem park for young and old alike hidden in the woods. The Efteling has expanded over the years it used to only consist of the Fairy-Tale Wood, but now has some exhillerating rides & attractions including the latest being the Flying Dutchman.

Join me and Pardoes (the Efteling Mascot) and Monkey on a tour through De Efteling, let the magic take over and please note for some attractions you must be 1.2m!!

Believe it or not

In De Efteling there are pink, blue and green doves - how they get that way I have no idea. As for photographic evidence you'll have to take my word for it because the birds flew away as I was zooming my camera in!! but its TRUE

    De Efteling is well known in the western part of Germany, where many people go on holiday to the Netherlands. Lovely page here. Well done. :-)

    What a fabulous place, especially with children. It seemed enchanting, creative, and just plain fun. You've covered the activities very well; I could picture them in my mind's eye as well as in your great photos.
