Efteling celebrates 70 years in 2022
Daily celebrations will take place throughout the year at the fairytale theme park
2022 is going to be a big year at Efteling - the fairytale theme park resort in the south of Holland, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary with all sorts of surprises taking place in the park throughout the year.
The jubilee will kick off on 1 January 2022 with the opening of two new attractions, Sirocco and Archipel located in the Reizenrijk area of the park.
At the beginning of February, just after Winter Efteling comes to an end, the iconic Efteling inhabitant Langnek will put on his party hat, garlands will be hung and party music will be played throughout the park. Every day at 4 p.m., the park guests will be encouraged to join the celebrations too. Between April and October, there will be even more revelry with a unique pop-up fairytale on the Speelweide playing field, located in the heart of the park.
What began in 1952 as a Fairytale Forest with ten fairytales and a playground has grown over seventy years into a world-class theme park. Throughout the years, millions of visitors have wandered the paths of the Fairytale Forest, tested their courage on thrilling roller coasters, had their photo taken with Pardoes the magic jester, been transported to other worlds in family attractions or stayed the night in Efteling's holiday parks and hotels. 2022 will be a festive year for Efteling and for all its guests, in recognition that this anniversary could never have been celebrated without its visitors and loyal fans.
