The park entrance

When my (now ex) boyfriend Robin and me celebrated our 3rd anniversary we went to visit The Eftelig. The Efteling is the most well known theme-park in our country and very populair with tourists. I really love the place. It's a theme-park based on myths and fairy tales. The place has a dreamy look because of the famous architecture by Anton Pieck. The Efteling started out as a sports park just for recreational purposes and then when more and more visitors came it became bigger in size and people started adding art exhibits and then somebody came up with the idea for the fairytale forest. From there they built more and more rides and it became the theme-park that it is today

The Efteling is a great themepark for children because they will feel like being in a fairy-tale, but its also great for adults.

There are a lot of rides for children but there are also fun an thrilling rides for older visitors, plus the scenery and architecture is beautiful. I always like to visit the Efteling the park has new and fun rides and shows all the time so they keep the park very interesting. It's also fun to visit the Efteling in Winter because you can go ice-skating there and they are really creative with the theme by putting wintercoats on statues and funny things like that. Some rides have fun stories or myths behind them that add to the whole theme and make sure that the visitors really get into the story. When you're in the Netherlands and want to have a break from sightseeing and want to have some fun, you should def. visit the Efteling.
