Sleeping Beauty's Castle

With over 2 million visitors a year, De Efteling is the Netherlands favourite amusement park. Originally it was a big Sprookjesbos (Fairytale Forrest) designed by Anton Pieck in the 50-ies, with very cosy built small houses in it, each representing a famous fairytale. In the 80-ies it has added a lot of modern attractions like a rollercoaster (the Python) which changed the outlook of the park a bit, but in recent years the park has gone back to its roots a bit. The latest additions are all tasty, and have to do with fairytales. They have just finished a new fairytale and somewhere in 2006 they will open a new ride: The Flying Dutchman. Quite a few of the attractions are in Dutch, but there is enough to enjoy for foreigners, especially if you have children.

The efteling is best reached from Tilburg or Den Bosch.
