The legend of the local weather witches is told here

Our History

Once upon a time,.... this is not a fairy tale but a true Story. How the fairy tale park changed over the years

The philosophy of the Märchen-Erlebnispark is to create an environment for adults and children to play together. We hope that through such experiences we can encourage the communication within families.  Due to the high value of this philosophy, we have tried to find alternatives to electronic toys and rides in the park. At the Märchen-Erlebnispark, we believe, that such a joint adventure in spare time is connected to the development of our adventurous nature as humans.
