As you wander through the dream world, you’ll see the Castle Realm where you’ll watch castles floating peacefully among waterfalls and vegetation. Then you’ll enter the Wondrous Forest to visit the fairies, fauns and other magical creatures that frolic among the trees.

Then there’s the Fairy Garden where the delicately winged creatures play on swings or watch you pass by on their various branches. Next is the Heavenly Strongholds and finally the Squelch Forest. Here you’ll visit the trolls and squelches who love playing in the rain.

What is Droomvlucht?

Droomvlucht, which opened in 1993, is one of the most beloved attractions at Efteling. It was conceived to immerse visitors in a fantastical dream world.

The experience was designed by Ton van de Ven and built by Translift. The goal was to open the ride in 1992 for the Efteling’s 40 year anniversary, however due to issues with the ride carriages the opening was postponed.
