What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

We LOVED Europa Park, even in the dead of winter when it was minus 4 degrees. You really can't do it all in one day, I recommend getting tickets for two days. Download the app and try to catch Virtual Line tickets, we were able to get a few and it was great. It was easy to scan the tickets that we bought on GYG into the app to be able to secure those places.

Wir haben es mit mehreren Teams gegeneinander gespielt. War wirklich lustig. Sind auch tolle Fotos dabei entstanden. Lustige Aufgaben, Gedichte und viele Infos rund um Weihnachten. Echt ein schönes aktives Weihnachtsspiel für alle die Spaß haben wollen und mehr als nur über den Weihnachtsmarkt latschen wollen. Witzige Rätsel und Blackstories.

Φτάσαμε και παρκάραμε πολύ εύκολα. Πολύ όμορφο πάρκο. Η καθε γωνιά του και κάτι διαφορετικό. Πολλά σόου που εντυπωσιάζουν τα παιδιά. Μεγάλη ευκολία τα τρενάκια που σε κάνουν βόλτα μέσα στο πάρκο ειδικά αργά το απογευμα που εχεις κουραστει απ τις βολτες και βρισκεσαι μακρια απο την εξοδο του παρκου.

What a winter wonderland. We took our son for his 10th birthday. We also had our 3 yr okd daughter. We all had a blast. Great wuality rides, well crafted park, characters and experiences.

Great day spent at Europa Park, enjoying the site and most of its attractions
