Attractions, Theme parks
If your children insist on the big Disney experience (with prices to match), this is the next best thing. An enormous fairytale forest peopled with dwarves and witches, characters from Grimm stories and the Arabian Nights, enchanted and haunted castles, and even talking rubbish bins. Even the most cynical kids will be sucked in. This massive (and massively popular) amusement park is packed with state-of-the-art thrills, as well as more traditional fairground rides for the really tiny. Busy in summer.
