Europa Park - Now Open for Summer 2020

After many weeks of waiting, the time has finally come: Europa-Park has begun the summer season.





Europa-Park owner, Roland Mack: “We, as the owner family, our employees, and of course, our guests, are extremely happy that Europa-Park is now open again - even if we have significantly reduced the number of visitors, with great self-restraint. I am very happy that our visitors have immediately adopted our extensive hygiene and distance concept. Our start went smoothly. The guests, who mostly come to the park as a family, are behaving incredibly sensibly. Of course, it would be nicer if our rollercoasters could be ridden without a mask, and everyone could see their seat neighbour laughing, however, responsibility and awareness are currently our highest command.”

Along with over 100 attractions, visitors can look forward to several more highlights. The famous ‘Pirates of Batavia’ return on the 45th birthday of Germany’s largest theme park, at the end of July, in the Dutch themed area. The facades around the market square have been re-built with unique attention to detail. Together with the notorious sailors, visitors will go on a fascinating boat ride through the exotic harbour town of Batavia. The Scandinavian themed area will also attract guests along the colourful facades of houses, with Nordic delicacies, shops as well as the family attraction ‘Snorri Touren’. Europa-Park presents its visitors with a vibrant, colourful summer display, with many flowers, tropical plants, and ancient trees around the historic Balthasar castle, as well as several new gastronomic offers.

So that visitors can explore the 15 European themed areas as well as the 13 spectacular rollercoasters safely and comfortably, Europa-Park has prepared introduced extensive new concepts. Visitors can inform themselves in advance in a video about the general rules: Roland Mack:
“When it comes to safety, we sit in the same boat as our guests. Only together we can operate the park, given the high demands.”
