The Netherlands: De Efteling

A few days ago I went to the Dutch amusement park ‘De Efteling’. It’s the largest amusement park in the Netherlands and one of the oldest theme parks in the world. (It’s opened in 1952) The park is fun for everyone: children, teens and adults. You can compare it a bit with Disneyland, but in my opinion it’s very different. De Efteling is twice as large as the original Disneyland park in California and less cartoon-like and more fantasy-like.

In the park are different areas: Reizenrijk (Travel Realm), Marerijk (Fairy Realm), Ruigrijk (Rough Realm) and Anderrijk (Differ Realm). You can also find many different cultures in the Efteling. There are places with an Arabian theme, Japanese, Dutch and many other themes.

In the following days I will tell you a lot about de Efteling and show you a lot of photos. If you visit the Netherlands for a long time, you really have to go to de Efteling!

This is the entrance of de Efteling.

  1. I will attend the rest of your pictures 🙂

  2. The roof actually reminds me to a traditional Minangkabau house in Indonesia.

    • I guess that would make sense since Indonesia used to be a colony of the Netherlands.
