Theme park Ravensburger Spieleland

A 36-metre-high panorama tower announces Ravensburger Spieleland from afar. Where today families can enjoy more than 70 attractions in the most beautiful natural surroundings, in 1997 there was still a simple cornfield. The interactive concept - a Ravensburger idea!

In 1998, the Ravensburger AG launched a pilot project that caused a sensation in the amusement park industry: an amusement park with the quality standards and philosophy of the Ravensburger "Blue Triangle", which stands for good entertainment, education and learning all over the world. More than 125 years of experience with games, puzzles and books went into the concept. The subsidiary Ravensburger Freizeit- und Promotion GmbH, which had already realised attractions in other theme parks, also planned and designed the Spieleland. The idea of a participatory concept was born: Here, families with children from two to 14 years of age should actively play in different worlds and experience something together.
Here is an overview of all the important events of the last few years.
