02Visit the Gnomes at Efteling

Efteling is a fun, albeit slightly less academic, Dutch attraction. The biggest amusement park in the Netherlands, Efteling, is located just outside of the village of Kaatsheuvel. Spend the day saying hi to the gnomes and dragons, going on rides, enjoying the lush surroundings, and catching some live performances.

There are plenty of different regions in the park, each based on a well-known myth or fairytale. Efteling is a lot of fun for kids and adults, and there are plenty of unique decorations and animatronics to keep you entertained for hours.
