Germany’s largest theme park – Europa-Park

In the heart of the border triangle, between the Black Forest and Vosges, lies Germany’s largest theme park, Europa-Park. 15 European themed areas with exemplary architecture, gastronomy, and vegetation are waiting to be discovered by visitors from around the world, embarking on a journey of discovery through Europe with over 100 attractions and shows and the promise of lots of fun and adventure for the whole family.

Fans of high speeds can board one of the 13 spectacular rollercoasters at Europa-Park. In Iceland, the 110 km/h wooden rollercoaster WODAN - Timburcoaster or the catapult rollercoaster blue fire Megacoaster powered by GAZPROM, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds, attract daredevils. Adrenaline enthusiasts will also get their money's worth with a ride on the high-speed rollercoaster Euro-Mir in Russia or with a go on the 73-metre-high Silver Star in the French themed area. From this summer, young and old alike will be able to look forward to the redesigned dark roller coaster Eurosat, including yet another Coastiality experience. The tracks, alongside all technical aspects and theming, will be completely renewed and revised by the summer. In addition to the redesign, visitors will also be able to look forward to an additional virtual reality experience from MackMedia.

Calmer minds can also find what their hearts desire: in Italy, guests float gently through the air with ‘Volo da Vinci’ and can enjoy the best of southern flair with ice cream and pasta. There is also Grimm's Enchanted Forest, popular with all ages, where fabulous creatures such as Mother Hulda, Rapunzel, and Cinderella and their lovingly-staged stories wait behind every corner. On particularly warm summer days, the family-friendly Tirol Log Flume in Austria or the water rollercoaster Poseidon in Greece provide a welcome respite.

On Alpenexpress Coastiality in Austria, guests can travel with the popular Paddington Bear and actively influence the journey by moving their heads. This spring, there will also be plenty to discover in the English themed area when it comes to this cute stuffed animal with the big button eyes. Arriving at the ‘Paddington Station’ on the steaming Panorama Train, visitors can look for various small souvenirs in the new shop. The beloved bear will also welcome visitors to Europa-Park as the main character in the new ice show ‘Surpr'Ice - Paddington on Ice’.  Over 23 hours of daily entertainment enchant and inspire visitors of all ages.

Once visitors from all over the world have experienced the paradise of adventure, cotton candy, and spectacle in the best theme park in the world, they can also discover numerous adventures in the five park-owned 4* themed hotels. Guests are offered a true-to-detail ambience and maximum comfort. Whether following in the footsteps of the Pilgrim Fathers in the ‘Bell Rock’, living the Italian ‘Dolce Vita’ in the ‘Colosseo', Portuguese monastery atmosphere in the ‘Santa Isabel’ or Spanish joy of life in the hotels ‘El Andaluz’ and ‘Castillo Alcazar’ - at the Europa-Park Hotel Resort, there is the right place for every taste. Visitors can also look forward to a wide variety of culinary delights: Alongside the popular pizzeria ‘La Romantica’ and the ‘Ammolite - The Lighthouse Restaurant’ which was awarded two Michelin stars for the third time in a row, as well as 17 Gault & Millau points, there are nine other restaurants and five bars available, leaving nothing to be desired. Beautifully designed relaxation and wellness areas also invite you to relax and unwind.
