Phantasialand is Germany’s second most-visited amusement park.
You’ll find plenty of family fun for all ages here, (almost!) all year round. With its different themed regions, you can experience extreme roller coasters, enjoy the amazing Chinese architecture, listen to traditional African or Mexican folk music, and take a tour of Germany’s capital without leaving the theme park. ;-)
Phantasialand opens from (approx.) April 1 through November 1. Hours are generally 9 am to 6 pm. There are some limited opening times in the winter season, with hours running from about 11 am to 6 pm.

Phantasialand is easily reached from Düsseldorf (65 km/40 mi), Bonn (31 km/19 mi), and Cologne (23 km/14 mi).
How To Get To The Phantasialand
You can fly to Düsseldorf International Airport, which is about 65 km (40 mi) from Brühl and Phantasialand. The Cologne/Bonn Airport is a bit closer at only 31 km (19 mi).
From Cologne take the A553, connect to the B51 (Konrad-Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer). From the B51, exit 2 (Brühl-Süd) will lead you to L194 and Phantasialandstraße.
From Bonn, exit 4 (Brühl) off the A565 connects to L150 (Kerkrader Str.). Some brief right turns onto L194, then B51 will bring you on A553 for 8 km (5 mi), then turn onto exit 2 (Brühl-Süd) and follow L194 to Phantasialand.
From Düsseldorf, the A1 will take you to the A553, then exit 2 (Brühl-Süd) and follow the L194.
In either case, all is well signposted.
By Public Transport
From the Brühl train station, you can connect to a bus (route 705) to Phantasialand.
Experience the American Wild West in the heart of Germany! This roller coaster is an old mining train that climbs mountains, barrels sideways along the tunnels and takes hairpin turns at high speeds. Feel the excitement of the gold rush as your adrenaline pumps through you.
In Mexico, get ready to be disoriented in the Talocan. Voted the best (non-roller coaster) attraction in 2008-2009, this is Europe’s only suspended top spin ride. As you spin upside down, you are sprayed with water, fire and mist. ;-)
This inverted coaster (the cars are located underneath the tracks) is a heart-pounding treat. The coaster corkscrews and turns as it makes its way through tunnels and chasms. The most thrilling part is the “near-miss” phenomena where you feel as if you’ll be crushed against the wall, until the coaster suddenly turns and averts catastrophe.
More Phantasialand Attractions
Featuring the Seven Lands of Alt Berlin, Fantasy, Mexico, China Town, Mystery and Deep in Africa, there is a large variety of attractions at the Phantasialand theme park.
Alt Berlin is the next best thing to visiting Germany’s capital city. You’ll find reproductions of many of the city’s chief attractions, like the Brandenburg Gate, Neptune fountain and the Wintergarten.
Fantasy land features much of what you’d expect from a magic kingdom. Children will enjoy the less wild rides of spinning tea cups and bumper cars. Adults can find some excitement on Wirtl’s Taubenturm and Winja’s Fear & Winja’s Force roller coaster.
China Town actually features the largest amount of Chinese architecture outside of the mainland. You can leisurely admire the pagodas and decorative walls. Or watch an epic tale unfold — as your seats shift up and down — on the Feng Ju Palace ride.
On to the next continent of Africa! Here you can watch some traditional folk dance, or get your adrenaline pumping on the Black Mamba extreme roller coaster.
The theme lands have their own restaurants, so you can chow down on the local flavors at Restaurant Mandschu, Unter den Linden and Hacienda Don Pedro.
