70 years of Efteling

70 years of wonder

For 70 years, we have worked hard to give every visitor an unforgettable day. Since our gates opened in 1952, we have entertained and fed more than 100 million visitors with stories. And without you, your parents and even your grandparents, we would never have reached this milestone.

Therefore, 2022 was a year of celebration. A moment to pause and be proud of! But not for too long... because next year as well, in 2030 and far beyond, we want to continue to amaze you.
