This is the attraction that made Efteling what it is. A must-do attraction for that and for the fact that the dioramas are truly works of art. It’s a nice way to walk off your lunch if you don’t feel like doing a coaster after your meal.

This is what Efteling is about. Small installations beautifully executed with interaction since 1952 opening day!
Absolutely stunning how these attractions hold up and continue to amaze and enchant small and adult children

Absolutely Unique (on worldwide scale)
