Tulips, clogs and cheese: if you feel like traveling around the Netherlands, you can now go to the so-called Holland Park. The amusement park at the Barnim motorway interchange has been open since last week, at least partially.

The blades of the octagonal mill are still standing. In many places on the spacious site you can also see one or the other small construction site. Visitors can still experience the Netherlands on the ten-hectare site in Schwanebeck (Barnim district) directly at the Barnim motorway junction. The so-called Holland Park opened last week.

19 years of planning

“It’s just wonderful,” says CEO Lando De Wild. The fact that after 19 years of planning he can open his little piece of Holland – a little piece of home – makes him proud and happy: “We have been working on it all year and now we know it works.”

The entrance to the park is located in a large and bright covered market. If you want to buy flowers, you can go to the newly made garden center from there. In a small shop opposite, customers can also buy products from the region and, of course, Dutch specialties. In addition to cheese and wooden clogs, you can also find Amsterdam tulips.

Indoor and outdoor activities

Outside there is a large area with numerous climbing frames, swings and trampolines. Two alpacas are expected to move into the park at Easter. The goats are already there. Other animals will follow, as employee Olli Hoffmann reports: “The donkeys are still coming, the turtles and probably the meerkats as well. The parrots are still on the schedule.”

Free admission but tickets to attractions

The park is open all year round. Admission to Holland Park is free. However, some attractions can only be used with a ticket: for example the 21-meter high slide tower with six different slides.

There is also a fee for the indoor game room. There’s a large maze of slides, soccer fields, and a skill course, and the interactive climbing walls can also be used for a supplement. The entire park is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
