At Europa Park, you can discover Europe’s most beautiful countries first hand. A short scenic drive from Frankfurt, Europa Park is Germany’s largest theme park, which offers over 100 attractions, including adventure rides, breathtaking shows, clever landscaping, endless eating outlets and magnificent themed hotels appealing to the whole family.
Here, you can explore the rapid 73-metre drop on Europe’s tallest roller coaster, Silver Star, take a ride on the one-of-a-kind spinning Euro-Mir roller coaster; get splashed on the high-speed water coaster, Poseidon; or discover pure energy with Blue Fire, the park’s latest addition, which combines a dark ride and a launched roller coaster. And that’s not all, the park also features Chocoland, Children's World and Adventure Land. Should the excitement get too much, you can take a moment to relax and admire beautiful water lilies, spacious flower beds and many different exotic groves and trees – and end the day dining in one of the park’s many restaurants.
