Hansa-Park

The new entrance
We spent the second day of our editorial tour visiting Hansa-Park which, alone due to its location right on the Baltic Sea, provides maritime holiday atmosphere. Those who remember the old entrance area will be surprised by the new look: The replica of the Holsten Gate at a scale of 2:3, built in 2008, is not only beautiful to look at but also marks the beginning of the theme world keyed to the fascinating world of the European Hansa.

An international, historic Hanseatic city came into being over the last six years. The construction work on the cities of Lübeck, Copenhagen, Bremen, Frankfurt am Main, Goslar and Nuremberg, all of them once belonged to the European Hanseatic League, is scheduled to be completed in the course of this year. So, instead of the purely functional buildings from the 70s, arriving visitors now marvel at a large paved area filled with rows of houses that takes them to the exciting Medieval Age. Another immediate eye-catcher is the lush vegetation with seasonal flowers that almost looks like a botanical Garden when the sun shines.

Coasters referring to the theme

Opened in 2009, the roller coaster "Der Fluch von Novgorod" ("The Curse of Novgorod") reveals the exciting story of a series of mysterious events that took place in the Russian Hanseatic city of the same name. Opened two years later, "Die Schlange von Midgard" ("The Midgard Serpent") is themed to Vikings and the Nordic mythology. This family adventure is another coaster that underlines Hansa-Park's delight in telling stories, and the European Hansa provides a great number of historical and geographical options for designing. It's too bad that "Super-Spash", which should already be part of the topic, hasn't been finished yet – the completion of the re-theming is set for next year.

Apart from this, Hansa-Park has two more films in store, both shown at the 4-D cinema: even though "Pirates 4-D", starring Leslie Nielson in the title role, is one of the older productions of its kind, it still remains one of the best. Furnished with nice effects and extraordinary gags, the short film, shot in 1999, definitely enhances every 4-D theatre. Regrettable, these flowery words don't apply to the other film. The 4-D version of "ICE AGE" merely seems to consist of out-of-context scenes known from the third episode. Visitors who have never watched the successful film might enjoy that version.

Hansa-Park clearly is one of the most beautiful amusement parks in Germany, and its range of attraction includes many unique and elaborately designed rides. The gastronomy with excellent price-performance ratio, the salty sea air and the overall feel-good factor make the only German amusement park on the sea a first class destination for the whole family, not only among those who plan to spend their precious holiday time on the Baltic Sea.
