What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

We found a splendid day and with few people despite the season we were able to do all the rides in one day, but be careful if you have children because some rides if they are not at least 1.30 m high they cannot do them and we are crying have a great time all very nice

It's a great park. Lots of attractions. Despite the world we do not feel it. Despite the heat that day the queues were not unpleasant sunny, shaded parts and in scenery to admire while waiting.

It worked out well, but I can't say more, I "only" organized it, wasn't allowed to come myself, had to work in the office...

Was very very Nice. There are a lot of activities You can make with small children as well.

We could ride all the attractions. Food was also delicious.
