Amusement Parks And Theme Parks In Germany

When it comes to spring time, our Amusement Parks and Theme Parks in Germany open their doors. Okay, some of them are also open for a few weeks in the winter season, but this is the exception.

Well, we have more than 50 here in Germany, and... Amusement Parks and Theme Parks in German definition means take an entire day and have a lot of fun! smile

From the idyllic wildlife park with domestic animals up to the safari-tour through a lion preserve, and from the contemplative visit in the fairy tale country up to the terrific ride with the Mega Roller Coaster. They offer fun and maintenance for the whole family.

Pay one entrance fee and enjoy whatever you like. Okay, you still have to pay for some events, but most attractions are free after you paid the entrance fee, which varies from 10 to 30 EUR.

All right , let's get started! (To view larger images, simply click on the thumbnail images.)

Oh, and remember to check my Theme Park Guide!

Europa-Park — Germany's Leader

It's the biggest one in Germany and located in Rust (between Freiburg and Offenburg), in South Germany. It has extravagantly arranged European ranges of topics. This facility in the Black Forest has varied driving attractions, color-magnificent shows and the "6 land worlds." It's a popular trip goal for visitors from the whole world. The Amusement Park lies in the 550 years old facility of the Balthasar castle and is considered today as one of the most beautiful parks world-wide. The park received also different honors. In difference to most other Theme Parks, its doors are open for a few weeks in the winter season as well.

Phantasialand — Wild West Flair

This amusement park is located in Bruehl by Cologne, in the middle-west of Germany. I was more than 15 times in this park. It was built in 1967 as a fairytale park. Since then, one year hardly passes, in which the park does not offer new attractions. In 1972, the range of topics old Berlin were inaugurated, which modelled on the flair of the capital in the 20's and 30's. Also the first landmark of the Phantasialand was developed, the Brandenburg Gate, on a scale of 1:2. The facility can be characterized as a large leisure park with many extravagant arranged ranges of topics, show attractions and rapid driving offers. The one you see in the photo was even opened by Michael Jackson! (Yup, really!) The best possibility to get an overview of this Amusement Park is a trip with the "Phantasialand Jet." It's a Jet which drives in a height of approx. 10m (33ft) above the ground, and its way leads nearly across the entire area. I strongly recommend driving this Jet before you even go onto any other attraction!

Heide Park — Gigantic Wood Roller Coaster

This Theme Park is just amazing! It's located in Soltau in the "Lueneburger Heide," between Hamburg and Hannover, North Germany. It is the largest Amusement Park of North Germany (850,000 square meters!). It has more than 50 attractions. The park is scenically, and its maintained facilities are brilliant. In a wildlife park you can observe in a nature-left and kind-fair environment over 200 native animals. These animals are described as the "real stars of the show." By the way, the Heide Park has the biggest wood roller coaster of the world!

Legoland — Play With Bricks

This one is amazing too, as it reminds me on my childhood. Do you remember playing with Lego bricks in your childhood? I played a lot! So, your kids (and you too) might like this park very much, I guess. The German version of Legoland is located in Guenzburg, between Ulm and Augsburg, South Germany. More than 50 million of the loved bricks were built into models like the head of Albert Einstein, the Neuschwanstein Castle, or the Venice Palace of the Doge. You even can put your own hand on and create your very own models. In addition, you find many other world-well-known buildings original-faithfully copied. Pure fascination.

Movie Park Germany (Warner Bros. Movie World)

"Today, you'll be in the movies." they introduce to their Theme Park. This film- and attraction park is located in Bottrop-Kirchhellen, between Duesseldorf and Dortmund, in the left middle of Germany. You will find 5 differently themed areas, like "Thrills" (e.g. roller coasters), "Family&Kids" and "Wonderland Studios" (e.g. cartoon stars, kiddie carousels), "Water Fun" (e.g. water rides like "Ice Age Adventure"), and the "Hollywood" section (e.g. "German Film Museum").

Freizeitland Geiselwind — Animals & Action

Bavarian's leading Amusement Park offers a mix from nature park, play and maintenance offers, shows, driving attractions and special exhibitions. The area is clearly divided into an animal and a nature range, which pull themselves approximately around the facility, the action range (lays central) and a stage mile. This Theme Park is 400,000 sq.m. large, and located in Geiselwind between Nuernberg and Wuerzburg, south-middle of Germany.

Hansapark — Hair Blowing Facilities

Lift off! Fly skywards, higher and higher into the blue. Circle the sky on airy wings, faster than the seagulls above the sea. The earth is but a dot, everyday life is a distant memory. When adrenalin shoots into your blood and your stomach is invaded by butterflies, you know your aim: reaching for the stars! Yeah, that's the Hansapark, located in Sierksdorf by Luebeck at the East Sea, North Germany. Raise your arms in the air and feel as free as a bird. When you are a hardened roller coaster enthusiast, this park is a "must-visit" for you. Even though it's located in the "cold north," it is even hotter on its hair-blowing facilities.

Special Tip!

Special Tip!

What's the best way to learn German? Be born to it. Native speakers learn their first languages easily and eagerly. Somehow, as if by magic, we're speaking fluently before we ever attend school. And what's the best way to learn a NEW language such as German? The way we learned our native language.

Rosetta Stone's award- winning method uses more than 8,000 real-life images, written text and voices of native speakers to teach you like a native learner. Each lesson taps your intuitive ability to connect words and meanings "from the inside." You learn to speak, read and write the German language quickly, naturally and easily. Your benefits? No translation. No memorization. No drills. Awesome!
