Explore the whole of Europe
There is a great deal more besides to discover in Germany's biggest theme park! 13 different European themed areas displaying typical national architecture, vegetation and culture are spread across the 85-hectare site. In Greece, guests can take off on a thrilling ride between sky and sea in the “Poseidon” water roller coaster while, right alongside, the youngest visitors can experience what could well be their first roller coaster ride on the “Pegasus” YoungSTAR coaster. In the Swiss themed area, the “Matterhorn-Blitz” twists through tight curves around mountains and valleys. And the French section has an exceptional adrenalin kick in store, with the “Silver Star”, which reaches speeds of up to 130 km/h. And what better way to cool down than the aquatic “Fjord Rafting” ride in Scandinavia or the “Atlantica SuperSplash” water roller coaster before the imposing backdrop of a Portuguese galleon. All in all, ten roller coasters offer plenty of thrilling adventures at Europa Park. Anyone who prefers to take things at a slower pace can look forward to the excellent show programme including an ice-skating show, variety performances, knights' contests and a host of unforgettable moments. The expansive green landscape of the castle park and the lovingly cultivated “Magical Garden” next to “Balthasar Castle” are perfect for a leisurely stroll.
Celebrations all the year round Europa Park offers its visitors a wealth of unparalleled events throughout the season. Alongside European themed festivals, including a Swiss and an Italian festival, there will also be unique party highlights to look forward to, for example the SWR3 Party-Night or cultural events such as the unique Chagall exhibition. The sporting highlights on the programme include the FC Bayern Football Camp and a big sports weekend, staged as part of the "Deutschland bewegt sich" (Germany on the move) campaign.
What's more, in Europa Park, the changing seasons of the year offer a great deal of variety. At the start of the 2009 season in spring, new features will abound. In summer, cooling down will be quite an adventure, with all the wild water attractions and summer highlights. In autumn, Germany's biggest theme park will be transformed into a spine-chilling playground for monsters and spooks, featuring creepy decorations and countless Halloween specials such as the Halloween Festival or the Terenzi Horror Nights.
