Europa-Park
country: Germany, Europe

Family-owned Europa-Park is the best theme park in Germany, no doubt about that. The theming of the park is original, world-class and atmospheric, featuring European country-themed areas representing Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. These are the unmissables:
• Silver Star: a high and fast strapped-in-by-the-belly roller coaster that makes everyone scream
•...

Phantasialand
country: Germany, Europe

A popular German institution, Phantasialand south of Cologne contains everything a theme park visitor would expect: roller coasters, flume rides, wild west village, lake, Main Street (looks rather German) and sweating staff in character costumes. It's all here and if there wasn't a 4,5-hour highway connection to Disneyland Paris just behind the park it would be even more impressive. While it won't dazzle a theme park freak it makes for a good day out with the family!...

Heidepark
country: Germany, Europe

Heidepark's defining feature is the eye-catching Statue of Liberty replica in the middle of its huge lake. Errected on July 4, 1986 and applauded by then-president Ronald Reagan via telegraph, the statue had considerable political significance, due to the park being located merely 70 km (45 miles) away from Eastern Germany, then Soviet territory. Numerous roller coasters wind across the park landscape: wooden, steel, looping, hanging and magnetic coasters - a pretty...

Tropical Islands
country: Germany, Europe

This is a refreshingly different and fantastically bizarre water theme park in the heart of Europe. Situated in a huge hangar originally intended for the construction of cargo airships (though the venture went bust before any living airship made it out of the hangar), Tropical Islands is just off the Berlin-Prague highway, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) southeast of Berlin, in the middle of a dark wood in Brandenburg. A Malaysian investor realized the potential of the...

Movie Park Germany
country: Germany, Europe

Once Warner Brothers Movie World, the renamed Movie Park Germany continues to deliver a solid theme park experience.
The two most exciting attractions are the Bermuda Triangle Alien Encounter flume ride and the Shrek 4-D movie. Bermuda incorporates some well-timed surprises in the dark and meticulous interior design, while Shrek, the same version found in the Universal Studios parks, is a great 3-D movie with some colorful water and wind effects. Complemented by...

Neuschwanstein Castle
country: Germany, Europe

Walt Disney was here! Shortly after the Second World War the mastermind toured Europe seeking inspiration for his envisioned Disneyland park in Southern California. Neuschwanstein Castle, the dream castle built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria celebrating Richard Wagner's operas, opened as late as 1886 (many people think it's much older). Disney and his architects fell in love with the castle and emulated its turrets and many other features in their magic copy 10,000 kilometers...

Holiday Park
country: Germany, Europe

‘The best roller coaster in the world’: that's what's drummed into your unsuspecting skull by every piece of marketing leaving the Holiday Park offices. Indeed, 'Expedition GeForce', created by ingenious Swiss thrill ride manufacturer Intamin AG in 2001, whizzes you through the lush wooded landscape of the park leaving you exhilarated. However, the latest Intamin coasters – found in China – feel smoother and other recently-opened adrenaline-rushes...

Alpamare Bad Toelz

Visited 1995. Was a kid. Loved the huge, dark indoor water slide jungle. Raced through the dark, didn't know where I'd come out. But then again, everything was cool when I was a kid. No rating...

Belantis

Visited 2004. Was the first major theme park in the eastern part of Germany, but felt as inviting as an outdoor version of IKEA's storage floor - lacked spirit and heart...

Hansa-Park

Visited 1994. Good childhood memories. Recalling roller coasters by the sea and ever a good atmosphere. No rating since my last visit dates nearly 20 years back...

Legoland Germany

Visited 2011 Just another Legoland park. Clean, and good for kids and parents. Lack of creative theme park spirit. Please see my other Legoland reviews...

Octoberfest

Visited 2000. From a theme park perspective, Octoberfest is noisy and disgusting. Lots of fun for those who don't go there for the rides, but for the beer and barbaric dating atmosphere in the tents. Expect vomiting Englishman right next to gorgeous smiling girl in traditional Bavarian dress...

Schwabenpark

Visited 1995. Recalling a moldy, rattling roller coaster and a munchkin clown called Bimbo with a monkey. The park was always empty when I visited as a kid, and that was back in the 90's. Magical that it's still operating!...

Therme Erding

Visited 2002. The water slide dome 'Galaxy' wasn't in place back in 2002. Well-kempt and close to Munich airport. Probably a good idea to visit now. No rating...

Tripsdrill

Visited 1993. Childhood memories here as well. Loved the warmth and love for detail in the park. Recalling a long slide in a vintage tower. Wouldn't be fair to rate since it's all clouded by recollections from the schooldays...

Spreepark

Visited 2004. Abandoned theme park in the eastern heart of Berlin. The owner was involved in drug trafficking, which gives this venture an evil spirit. Plans to revive it have failed so far...

Sensapolis

Visited 2009. Interesting indoor theme park concept with focus on families. Nice dry slides...

Deutsches Museum coal mine

Visited 1994 & 2014. Visited frequently as a child, and still impressed today. While strictly speaking not a theme park, the coal mine exhibit at the 'Deutsches Museum' in Munich is a masterpiece of theming. Its winding, endless corridors, attention to detail and autenticity provides a great, dark adventure within a huge, old museum...
