Sustainable travel by train

Travel to the Europa-Park Resort in a climate friendly way

If you want to travel between the themed areas at Europa-Park, you can choose between the Panorama train, EP-Express or the Monorail. So why not use the train to get to the Europa-Park Resort as well?
Thanks to the convenient location in the three-boarder triangle between Germany, France and Switzerland, and the new train stop 'Ringsheim/Europa-Park', Europa-Park, the Rulantica water world, our six themed hotels, the Camp Resort and the Europa-Park Camping are easily accessible by train, followed by a short bus ride.

Roland Mack (managing partner of Europa-Park) is particularly committed to the environment:

"Everyone is talking about climate protection and the changes in people's mobility behaviour. A better rail connection for Europa-Park is therefore a first-class sustainability project. The rail connection is a very high priority for Europa-Park."

Our tip: When purchasing your train ticket, make sure that it is valid until 'Rust Europa-Park' (not Ringsheim/Europa-Park) - that way, the bus ride from the train station to Europa-Park, Rulantica, to the themed hotels and the Camp Resort is already included.

Arriving by train has many benefits. See for yourself!
