Thrillseekers rejoice - the German amusement park reopened its gates on Friday 21 May.

Europa-Park and its surrounding hotels and campsites are once again accommodating guests. The Rulantica water park, however, is still awaiting a reopening date.

With the exception of some playgrounds, all attractions have reopened. Three shows will take place each day, and guests can dine at any of the park's restaurants.

Europa-Park management confirmed that entry is subject to numerous conditions.

Tickets must be dated with the day of the visit, and must be accompanied by photo ID. Masks are mandatory and guests must possess one of the following:

  • A negative PCR or antigen result, less than 24 hours old, for any visitor over six years old. Self-tests are not accepted.
  • A vaccination certificate. Guests must be able to present proof of complete vaccination. The certificate should be at least 14 days old, bear the date and name and be presented in paper format.
  • A positive PCR test result of at least 28 days, as a sign that the guest is no longer infectious. If the positive test is older than six months, a vaccination certificate older than 14 days will also be requested.

Visitors from Luxembourg, France, Switzerland and Belgium are permitted, but will remain subject to conditions of access to Germany in accordance with the relevant authorities. Day trips are allowed, but guests will need to request a form from the authorities.
