Freizeit-Land Geiselwind had its beginnings in 1969 when Buyer Mensinger began collecting birds and needed a place to show them off. So the park was opened as a way to showcase his beautiful animals and has since grown into a modern amusement park.

Located in its namegiver, the small municipality of Geiselwind, Freizeit-Land lies conveniently at the Autobahn A3 — between Nuremberg and Würzburg (less than an hour away, respectively).

How To Get To The Freizeit-Land Geiselwind
The closest airport is at Nuremburg, which is about an hour away by car. You can transfer from the airport to a train as well.
Frankfurt Airport is another option as it’s only 1.5 hours away by car.
From Nuremberg, take the A3 to Würzburg and go off at exit 76 (Geiselwind), and then turn right and at the next big corner to the left (Schlüsselfelder Straße), which leads through the village right to the park. Or simply follow the signs since it’s well sign-posted at and after the exit.
From Stuttgart, the A81 will take you to the A3 towards Nuremberg (via Würzburg). You go off at exit 76 (Geiselwind) and, as above, turn right and follow the signs to the park.

Boomerang Roller Coaster
This fun thrill ride carries its passengers at high speeds of up to 75km/h (47 mph) going forwards and backwards at heights of 38 m (125 ft). The corkscrew track loops and curves for a heart-racing, adrenaline-pumping good time. ;-)

This classic log flume takes you through an old sawmill and other historical reproductions. And then finally, you take the plunge as the river track dives and splashes all around you.

For old carnival lovers, Freizeit-Land conjures up nostalgic old rides like the ferris wheel, carousel, swan boat ride and paddle boats. Go back even further in time at Dinosaur county where you can sit at the feet of a giant T-Rex monster.
The Viking boat ride will swing you side to side while the Enterprise centrifuge ride will lift you through the air.
There is also a wide array of animals on showcase here, which is why the park was originally founded. The bird safari is a testament to the park’s beginnings with Mr. Mensinger’s bird collection. Visit apes, flamingos, storks and owls when you are tired of the amusement park rides.
