April 6, 2022, 12:56 PM · Dutch theme park resort Efteling is sharing the first concept art of the new hotel that it will open in 2024, next to the park's entrance.

Design elements include a giant clock with a pendulum, sitting under the building's green oxidized copper roof, a nine-meter high and 16-meter wide arcade that leads into the park, and a two-story glass conservatory, which will including restaurant seating.

"This striking and unique addition will be the central point in the World of Efteling, inspired by the history of the park and Scandinavian ports," lead designer Sander de Bruijn said. "In terms of design, this hotel fits in with other characteristic buildings at Efteling, but its shape and functionality give it a character all of its own. Nature, greenery and water are the connecting factors. Hotel guests, as well as visitors of the theme park, will be able to discover the wonderful environment of this new place from early until late."

Efteling Grand Hotel will be the first of Efteling's on-site hotels to be located within the park's boundaries. Site prep work is underway for an anticipated opening in 2024.
