Hansa-Park had its beginnings in the mid-70s as the original Legoland. In 1977, it changed over to Hansaland, and became Hansa-Park in 1987.
It is currently Germany’s fifth largest amusement park, with over one million visitors and an area of 113 acres.

Hansa-Park is open from April to October. The park opens at 9 am, with rides beginning to operate at 10 am. Closing times can vary depending on the season.
It is also possible to get there from Denmark, Norway and Sweden via ferries arriving at Kiel and Puttgarden (64 km or 40 mi.)
How To Get To The Hansa-Park
Two airports serve the immediate area, Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel and Lübeck-Blankensee. Hamburg is located about 70 km (43 mi) away, while Lübeck-Blankensee is closer at only 20 km (12 mi).
If you’re lucky enough to own your own private jet, you can fly directly into Sierksdorf/Hof Altona airport.
The Autobahn A1 runs very close to Hansa-Park. From this autobahn, which connects Hamburg to Puttgarden and Denmark, you can get off at Exit 14 for Neustadt-Mitte and follow the signs.
From Kiel, use the B 76 to get to Eutin, then continue to follow the signs to Hansa-Park.
By Public Transport
Hansa-Park is only a 10-minute walk from Sierksdorf train station. You can take trains from Hamburg, Lübeck, Neustadt, Oldenburg or Puttgarden directly to the Sierksdorf stop. There is also a shuttle bus service that runs from Hamburg to Hansa, the Bäderbus.
The Bell is a unique adrenaline rush attraction that recreates the feeling of flight. As you are strapped inside a large 80-ton bell which swings up and down as you hang tight inside, be prepared to get drenched from a water fountain below that shoots water up towards you.
Rio Dorado, a water adventure ride, puts you on a canal with rushing water in a large rubber boat. Simulating a bobsled ride, your raft turns and speeds along, while spinning you and your party around a few times for fun.
Curse Of Novgorod
One of the newest additions to the Hansa-Park attractions, the Curse Of Novgorod coaster is a heart-pounding experience. This roller coaster is part of a new kind of ride, the Cataplector. This new technological marvel boasts the steepest drop of any coaster in the world — 97 degrees — all while in complete darkness!
More Hansa-Park Attractions
Like many other parks, Hansa-Park is divided into several theme worlds. In Adventureland, you’ll find some American Wild West wild rides, from the Crazy Mine cart coaster to the Navajo high-rope Trail.
Water fun has exactly what you’d expect — fun rides that guarantee you’ll get wet, like the Super Splash. The Old-Time Fun Fair features a bit of nostalgia and culture, from the historic Russian Swing ride to relaxing boat rides and car driving courses.
Thrill rides (that’s what I love most) combine the park’s most exciting, heart-pumping rides in one spot, like the Nessie or twin coaster Rendezvous in the Loop.
With a total of eleven theme worlds, one day just won’t be enough to experience Hansa-Park.
The usual fast food is of course available at Hansa-Park — bratwurst, crepes, pizza and hamburgers. If you have time for a sit-down meal, the Italian restaurant of L’Artista is a good choice with their buffet dinner.
For something more traditional of the region, try Weltumsegler, with menus filled with German meats, fish and home-made desserts.
