Probably nice, but we couldn't actually check it out. Here is why. They don't accept electronic payment (without warning about that in their leaflets): the ATM in the downtown neighborhood where the train to the park leaves was out of service, no one was able to tell us whether cards were accepted at the park so we tried. Only to... More

We did visit Maerchen Paradies with our 3 daughters it is perfect entertainment for younger kids. Only thing you have to be aware of is that there is no possibility to buy coins for attractions with bank card or credit card. So you have to make sure you bring enough cash.

To start - do not expect Disney Land but accept Maerchen Paradies for what it is: a wonderful, small place for families with children up to 7/8 years old. Every corner tells a kids story (German) and there are simple but fun rides suitable for children from 3 years (and younger with parents). The place is set beautifully in the... More

This did not meet our expectations. I have two children (4 and 7) and they were underwhelmed by this park. It cost €22 for the funicular railway up to the park (so I would recommend going by car if you can) and for us three entry cost €11, however you are then charged extra for tokens to be able to...

This place is great for small children, max. 10-11 years old. The amusement park is really nice because it is in the forest and can be really fun for small children!

This s a good excursion for small children. Pre-teens will find it lame and be bored. Caution: you have to buy tokens for many of the events and the cost can add up quickly.

This park is a wonderful destination for families with children under 10. We found that there was more than ample things to do and see for our 6 and 2 year old girls. It is a perfect place to let the little ones run and burn off energy. We went on the saturday before Easter but the park wasn't too... More
