Win an unforgettable family break at Germany’s largest theme park!

The season of ghosts and witches doesn’t stop for Germany’s largest theme park. Until 5 November, Europa-Park transforms into a mysterious autumnal landscape, in which eerie figures and demonic nightmares drift throughout.

The attractions, the parade, and the show programme are all adopting to the spooky season, like the gastronomy and the park’s five themed hotels.

In the new horror event spectacular, Traumatica (until 4 November), evil takes power and escorts fearless visitors into a world after the Apocalypse.

For fans – young and old – of this scary time of the year, Halloween at the world‘s best theme park has been an unmissable event for more than 15 years with 180,000 pumpkins of all shapes and sizes colour Europa-Park in a rich shade of orange. In addition, 15,000 chrysanthemums, 6,000 maize plants, and 3,000 straw bales surrounded by thick spider webs and rattling skeletons create a wonderfully spooky atmosphere.

Nestled in the tri-border area Germany, France, Switzerland, visitors to Germany’s largest theme park can explore all of Europe in just one day. Besides France and Switzerland, a total of 15 European-themed areas await the whole family with traditional architecture and multi-award-winning gastronomic delights. More than 100 attractions and shows invite you to make each experience your own.

After a day full of adventures, the park’s own 4* hotels ‘El Andaluz’ and ‘Castillo Alcazar’, as well as the 4* superior hotels ‘Colosseo’, ‘Santa Isabel’ and ‘Bell Rock’, provide everything visitors need for a perfect family holiday or romantic wellness weekend with an authentic atmosphere and ambience unique to each themed hotel.

In our special competition, one lucky reader will win 

  • one night in one of Europa-Park’s five 4* hotels for a family of up to 4 people, incl. breakfast
  • 2 days admission to Europa-Park for each person. 

The winner can book whenever suits them (subject to availability) and the voucher is valid for 2 years.  Please note the prize does NOT include travel to the park itself.
