The park was established in 1935, and many visitors came to the site and wanted to spend time playing football or hiking. As time passed, new and varied attractions were added to the park and it continued to develop. In 1950 the park's official foundation was founded, it was the one that named it Efteling (named after a rural farm located in the area). As the visitors flocked to the park, all the facilities and sports courts were replaced by fairy-tale experiences.
The fairy-tale park, which corresponds to the fairy tales of Sleeping Beauty and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, reaches 720 acres. You will find a magnificent design that will bring you into an almost imaginary world: knight castles, dwarf caves, giant mushrooms and gardens filled with colorful flowers.
Beyond that, the children will be able to find the favorite facilities here: a pirate boat, roller coasters, carousels and much more. To complete the experience, throughout the stay in the park you will hear music, written especially for visitors.
In 2001 the park opened and became one of the leading parks in the Netherlands. A few years ago, the park was named the "Best Park in the World" and is visited every year by 3 million visitors.
