1 | 2 | 3 Forward to Amusement Parks and Theme Parks in Germany Part 2/3

Would you like to dive into a complete different world to escape the everyday life? Then this 3-part report might interest you...

As we get spring here in Germany and the temperature goes up, our Amusement Parks and Theme Parks opened their doors. (Some are open for a few weeks in the winter season as well, but most not) A&T Parks in German definition means, take an entire day and have a lot of fun :-)

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.

In this 3-part report I will let you know about our 7 biggest Theme Parks in Germany. In addition, I will reveal 5 easy steps on how to save approx. 50% of your valuable "amusement-park-time" so that you can visit a lot more attractions.

And before we get started, I recommend visiting
to gain further information, and the web addresses of all parks mentioned here.

Okay, let's go!


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 Theme Parks world-wide. The park received also different honors.


This one is located in Bruehl by Cologne, in the middle-west of Germany. Heck, 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. One of their roller coasters was even opened by Michael Jackson! (Yes, really!)

The best possibility to get an overview of the 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

This one is just amazing! It's located in Soltau in the "Lueneburger Heide," between Hamburg and Hannover, in 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!

So, that's it for now! Look forward to the second part of my 3-part report. In it I will let you know about the 4 remaining Theme Parks, and about how you can save approx. 50% of your valuable time in such parks.

Well, I wish you a lot of fun!
