Germany boasts some of the most exciting and unique theme parks and amusement parks in the whole of Europe. Packed full of variety and intrigue, these parks promise once in a lifetime experiences for the whole family. After much deliberation, the HolidayParkSpecials team have chosen their favourite three theme parks in Germany and the best holiday parks nearby!
Phantasialand Theme Park
Phantasialand, near Cologne, attracts almost 1.7 million visitors per year and is the second most visited theme park in Germany. Experience the world’s steepest log flume ride, take a ride to the moon in the Space Center, and visit one of the incredible themed villages. Phantasialand also features one of the most talked-about roller coasters on the continent – the notorious Black Mamba. The Black Mamba is an inverted roller coaster, which means that the trains travel underneath the weels, and rides through tunnels and ravines in the ‘Deep in Africa’ area of the park. This ride will only appeal to the real daredevils in the family. Do you dare to ride the Black Mamba? After an adrenaline packed day, you can return to your beautiful holiday cottage at Hogenboom Eifelpark Kronenburger See. This park is located on a steep slope, surrounded by beautiful forests and panoramic views. Not far from the mountain village of Kronenburg, this park has much to offer besides its proximity to Phantasialand. The surrounding area is ideal for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing during the winter months. Landal Wirfttal is also near Phantasialand, and makes the ideal base for a varied family holiday. You can split your days between Phantasialand and the stunning Eifel countryside!
Tropical Islands Resort
Why go all the way to the tropics when you can just pop over to Germany’s famous Tropical Islands Resort – the largest tropical holiday world in Europe! You can take long strolls along the sandy beach while gazing out at the tropical sea or get lost in the tropical rainforest. Be awe-struck by one of the amazing Tropical Island shows, and feel what it’s like to fly in a free-floating balloon. During your stay at Ferienhausdorf Tropical Islands, you’ll sleep in Scandinavian style holiday cottages which feature open fireplaces, saunas and large garden terraces. The whole family also has free entrance into the subtropical swimming paradise. If you fancy some variety during your holiday, the surroundings also offer a fantastic time for the whole family. You can take a day trip to Berlin and visit all of the cultural and historical treasures of this incredible capital city. For a dose of nature, you can visit the Spreewald, a wooded area that was labelled a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1991. You can take a canoe trip down the River Spree or just enjoy a relaxing walk in the beautiful surroundings.
Movie Park Germany
If you have any young film fanatics in the family, Movie Park is the place to go! The park actually produces films and TV series on site, so the kids can learn all about the process. On top of that, the park features many exciting rides, shows and other attractions. If you want to visit Movie Park Germany, you can stay at Roompot Ferienresort Bad Bentheim in Lower Saxony. This park is fully-equipped with a shop, restaurants, and various sports facilities for an active getaway. The luxury villas are beautifully designed and grouped into small courtyards between trees that are hundreds of years old. For days that you don’t feel like visiting Movie Park, you can enjoy a spa treatment in the ancient spa town of Bad Bentheim.
