The Phantasialand in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia: simply fantastic!

Phantasialand near Cologne is one of the most famous and popular amusement parks in Germany. The Klugheim themed area was added in 2016 and offers two epic roller coasters that together hold six world records. In addition to great rides, there are also many more gentle offers for the very little ones and the less adventurous. Don't miss the ghost rickshaw, a haunted underground train based on an ancient Chinese myth. There are also exciting shows, one of them with a high-energy mix of stilt jumpers, trampoline artists, BMX riders and break dancers.

World history tour in Parc Astérix Plailly in Picardy

Located just 45 km north of Paris, this very special amusement park is the Gallic answer to the famous Disneyland Paris, which is only an hour's drive away. Many of the attractions, roller coasters and shows are based on the two lovable Gauls Asterix and Obelix by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny. But other cultures such as the Romans, the ancient Greeks, the Vikings and the Egyptians are not neglected. Don't miss the funny dance competition between the Gauls and Romans during their "match" in the arena. Then fortify yourself with wild boar on a spit and Julius Caesar salad in the Restaurant du Lac with its wonderful outdoor area overgrown with fruit and vegetables.
