Germany’s biggest theme park has developed into a first-class address for conferences and events during the past years. In 1998, Europa-Park has established a concept, which combines efficient conferences with motivating entertainment – Confertainment.
Confertainment at Europa-Park
Europa-Park: More than just a theme park
It is wrong to think that Europa-Park and its hotels are suitable only as a destination for families or groups of young people. The theme park is becoming more and more popular as a destination for conventions and events for both, business and private parties – and not only the over 100 top attractions and international shows make our guests want to come back. Well known companies from Germany and abroad make use of the attractive offer. In 2007 approximately 1,000 events were organised at Europa-Park.
A variety of conference and function rooms
Depending on the number of participants and the type of event, an appropriate setting can be chosen. Perfectly equipped conference rooms, modern communication technology and competent service guarantee that each event will be a complete success, no matter if it’s a conference, workshop or seminar. The Confertainment ensures that the attendees can work in a professional and relaxed atmosphere - conferences and entertainment at the highest level. Europa-Park offers a large number of premises that create an exceptional atmosphere for presentations, speeches, lectures, workshops, seminars, anniversary celebrations, gala evenings and much more. More than 20 conference and function rooms provide space for groups from 10 to 1,400 persons.
The new Festival Hall
The new Festival Hall at Europa-Park is the perfect location for glamorous festivities in an exclusive ambience. After a complete renovation, Europa-Park´s popular event location shines in new splendour since November 2008. The new Festival Hall is designed in neo-classical style and divided into the ballroom “Berlin”, with a total floor space of 800 square metres, and the conference room “Goethe”. Lovingly designed 19th century decoration provides the new Confertainment location, which is designed in red and gold, with a glamorous flair.
Each conference is organised with creativity and professionality, according to the client’s wishes and objectives. Creativity and motivation are key factors for each event – factors that are considered to be essential at Europa-Park. The Confertainment ensures perfect preparation and a smooth course of the event by collaborating closely already during the planning stage. No matter if the client wants to organise a specific company statement, a product presentation or a reward and incentive for employees – Europa-Park offers a unique setting, show stars and international artists to create an individual and exclusive event.
The wide range of Europa-Park’s first-class culinary specialities creates a cultivated and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to the large variety of dishes, which can be savoured in each of the European themed areas, also the range of dinner events is increasing continuously. Europa-Park is a fantastic location for all guests who want to combine adventure with culinary pleasures and enjoyment with culture.
Also this year, Europa-Park presents a large selection of exceptional dinner events, that are especially suitable for larger groups.
One of the highlights is surely the Dinner-Show „Cirque d´Europe“, a first-class event with culinary specialties and entertainment. Acrobats, dancers and musicians celebrate a special evening with a fantastic show-programme. The stylish setting for this overwhelming spectacle is the „Teatro dell’Arte“. The magnificent splendour of the baroque theatre underlines the breathtaking atmosphere of this exceptional dinner-show. A fascinating combination of dining and entertainment that can be booked from mid-November 2008 until end of January 2009 (can be booked year-round for groups of 150 persons or more).
Since 2008, Europa-Park presents the adventurous dinner event „Pirates of Batavia“ in the restaurant “Bamboe Baai”. After an exciting boat trip to a buccaneer attack, the guests land at the new restaurant and enjoy an Asian inspired 4-course menu in the exotic atmosphere of the Indonesian jungle. Breathtaking acrobatics, dance and thrilling show performances make the guests immerse in a bodacious love story.
Further examples for dinner-shows at Europa-Park are the French Evening “La Cigale”, which allows the guests to enter the atmosphere of a typical French village, or the Spanish Fiesta “Viva la Vida”, an Andalusian evening with impressive Flamenco performances and Mediterranean ambience. Moreover, the Medieval Banquet invites the guests to feast in proper style in the park’s historic “Balthasar Castle”. A 6-course dinner is served by maids and servants in medieval costumes, while minstrels and jugglers take the guests back into the 15th century.
Orient meets Occident in the seductive atmosphere of the “Spanish-Moorish Night”. The guests savour a 6-course dinner, while being enchanted by exotic scents and dances. Also the “Greek Evening” takes its guests into a different world. Jugglers, acrobats, dancers and a Mediterranean buffet create a very special ambience with a touch of ancient Greece. Moreover, the visitors can enjoy a culinary and visual highlight – the “Heavenly Dalí-Rium” – and experience the unique combination of select delicacies and erotic art, accompanied by Dalís artfully painted muses.
A more rustic dinner event with campfires and a traditional barbecue is celebrated with the “Country Evening”. Accompanied by lively country music, the guests experience a fantastic western-show surrounded by the authentic atmosphere of Europa-Park’s Western Saloon. Last but not least, the new dinner event “Dinner & Movie” presents the visitors a very special movie experience: after a themed dinner the guests can experience a fascinating movie highlight in the Magic Cinema. This event only takes place on select dates, which can be found on Europa-Park’s homepage (all films are presented in German).
An exclusive event location, the historical “Palace of Dreams”, was created in 2005. This traditional Pavillion of Mirrors anno 1920, which was formerly owned by the world-famous “Circus Roncalli”, offers an exceptional ambience for evening events with a special touch. While “Caruso & Friends” presents the guests with popular sounds from classic to pop, the “Premiere of Silent Pictures” takes the visitors back to the era of silent movies. Delicious “cucina”, combined with exquisite “musica” and exceptional “artistica” guarantee a fantastic evening with international artists true to the motto “Viva la mama, Viva la pasta!”. An exceptional location is also presented in the Portuguese themed area on deck of the sailing ship “Santa Marian”. In the exclusively furnished “Magellan Lounge”, groups from 20 to 70 persons can start or end their event in a stylish ambience.
Living in luxury
After an eventful day at Europa-Park, four 4-star themed hotels offer overnight stays in a beautiful ambience. No matter if the attendees stay overnight in the Spanish themed 4-star hotels “El Andaluz” and “Castillo Alcazar”, in the Italian 4-star superior themed hotel “Colosseo” or in the 4-star superior hotel “Santa Isabel”, which was opened in 2007 - all hotels offer the perfect setting to relax after a successful day.
Exceptional ideas and possibilities for extraordinary events and conferences – Europa-Park offers organisation, service, know-how and a unique and unforgettable event.
