Family bonding to a theme
More and more Arab visitors are discovering Germany’s biggest theme park, the Europa Park, which makes for the ideal family outing, with rides for children and seniors alike.
“Since 2006, stays at the park can be booked with Emirates Holidays and since then the number of visitors from the UAE and the Gulf has increased considerably and the cooperation between Europa Park and Emirates Holidays proved to be a very successful one,” according to Europa Park spokesperson Esther Wawrin.
“In addition to those guests staying overnight at the park, many visitors also spend the night in Switzerland or in the Black Forest region and visit Europa-Park for one day.”
The park welcomed a total of four million visitors last year, and has seen 71 million visitors over the last 31 years. It is now the most most popular tourist destination in Germany, apart from the Cologne Cathedral. On offer are a variety of outdoor and indoor attractions, first-class international shows and a large number of additional offers.
Among this year’s new attractions is an expedition to the depths of the ocean in the new interactive indoor ride ‘Abenteuer Atlantis’ in search of the fabulous treasure of the mystical city Atlantis.
Next to the main entrance, the ‘Science House’ invites the visitors to learn many interesting facts about science and technology with more than 80 interactive experiments.
Several themed hotels are available at the park, across categories. A new hotel opens this July, in the style of an old Portuguese monastery. Other hotels take Spanish and Roman themes, while the more adventurous can choose a Wild West wagon in the Tipi Village.
Guests looking for something quieter can opt for the three-star Sun Parc Hotel Ringsheim, four kilometres away from the park.
