The Park is located in rust, in the South of Germany. Largest he is 900.000 m? and is the second largest in Europe after Disneyland Paris.

The Park was divided into 16 parts, which, as already its name suggests, this Park is provided in the form of European countries: Italy, Holland, UK, France, Austria, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Russia, Greece, Portugal and Iceland.
