Kaatsheuvel, Netherlands: Over the next 18 months Efteling is investing around € 30 million in the construction of a new holiday village, bordering the theme park, Efteling Golf Park and the Loonsche Land nature district. The site, which is more than eight hectares in size, will feature central facilities and holiday homes designed to be compatible with the district’s natural surroundings. Preparation work will begin before the end of this year and the first guests are expected to be welcomed in the early part of 2017.
Through a programme of phased growth over the coming years, Efteling aims to become an international destination with five million visitors per year by 2020. In order to encourage stays of several days and attract more visitors from abroad, Efteling needs to expand its accommodation options. Once the new holiday accommodation opens, Efteling will offer a total of 3,000 beds: 450 in the Efteling Hotel, 1,550 in Efteling Village Bosrijk holiday park and a further 1,000 in the new holiday village.
Since the opening in 1952, more than 120 million visitors have experienced an unforgettable day at Efteling, in the south of Holland. Over the years, Efteling has grown to become one of Europe’s biggest theme parks, with a unique fairytale atmosphere, natural surroundings and a wide range of thrilling and enchanting attractions. Efteling is open all year round, and makes an ideal family short-break destination with the Efteling Hotel and the holiday village Efteling Bosrijk just a stone’s throw away.
