Practical Information



Berggeiststraße 31-41

Book your flight to International Airport Cologne/Bonn (CGN). It only takes about a 20 minute drive from there to Phantasialand. You can also just take the train from there (Terminal 1, Köln/Bonn Flughafen) or use our Shuttle Service (more info under 'By Shuttle').

A sufficient amount of parking spaces is available in front of the entrance (“Berlin”) and the hotel Matamba as well. In order to use them, you have to draw a ticket. Before leaving, you have to get a stamp at no cost in one of the hotels across the street (Matamba and LingBao) by using the keyword "JavaLand".

Here you can find a list of alternative hotels in the surrounding area:

It is highly recommended to reserve a room early. The hotels are booked up very quickly.
