Karl's Erlebnis-Dorf Rides & Attractions

Karl's Erlebnis-Dorf - Elstal
What Karl's is lacking in coasters the park definitely makes up in other exciting and unique attractions like the Eiswelt or Manufaktur-attractions. Not only are you able to see gummybears, sweets and breads being made right in front of your eyes, but you will also be able to purchase those freshly made products in that same location.

If you want to learn more about the Karl's family and the park, we recommend visiting either the Erdbeer-Kino or Erdbeer-Obelisk as they will give you a wonderful presentation on those topics. Unfortunately, they're only available in German, but you can still gain plenty of insight from the video in the bus attraction. 

If you're looking for more thrilling attractions,  look no further than the K2 Achterbahn, which is the only coaster in the park. You'll get a lovely view on the park as you ride in speeding potato crates through the heart of the theme park. The myriad of active attractions, like play places, bicycle tracks, climbing mountains, and swings, are great for getting a bit of exercise in while having fun.

#2 6. Eiswelt
The Eiswelt is one of the most unique attractions at many of Karl's Erlebnis-Dorf locations. Having a whole section of the park cooled down to a chilling -7°C or 19°F is not something many parks could say of themselves. The ice sculptures are extremely detailed and are perfect for those instagram-worthy vacation photos.

#3 Löffel-Jet
At the far end of the park, the Löffel-Jet is one of the more unassuming parts of the park. With a whole wall full of Karl's famous strawberry recipe split into small notes, it is definitely one of the attractions with the most interesting queue design.
