Fam­liy theme park Kernie's Wun­der­land Kalkar

Fun and re­lax­a­tion at aban­doned nuc­le­ar re­act­or

The fun al­tern­at­ive to nuc­le­ar power! The site of a nuc­le­ar power plant that nev­er went on­line is now home to Kernie’s Fam­i­li­en­park and Wun­der­land Kalkar.

Taking the family to the leisure park is the most popular activity at Wunderland Kalkar. But this park, which is close to the Dutch border, has so much more to offer. Against the striking backdrop of a nuclear power plant that never went online, hotels, restaurants and an extensive leisure park offer sweet dreams, excellent dining and a whole lot of fun. Whether a party weekend with friends or a company outing with colleagues, Wunderland Kalkar makes for an unforgettable experience.

The fast-breeder reactor was built to supply nuclear power to thousands of households, but safety concerns thwarted the operators’ plans, so the site was redeveloped into an impressive leisure park. In Kernie’s Familienpark, pirates, clowns and a flying carousel entice visitors into a world of fantasy. The cooling tower of the proposed nuclear power station is now a one-of-a-kind climbing wall. Other attractions include a log flume ride, a jungle town and safari ad-ventures. And since families need to refuel in between all these activities, the admission price also includes chips, ice-cream and beverages.

For sporty visitors, the hotels in Wunderland Kalkar offer activities for everyone – from tennis, bowling and beach volleyball to a fitness gym. If it’s relaxation they’re after, visitors can unwind a cocktail in one of the bars. Wunderland is also a great place for children’s birthday parties, with themes like crazy golf or a pancake feast. The parents can amuse themselves in the meantime with activities like archery or poker. Or even learn something new in the Brütermuseum, which explains what would originally have become of the site. Here visitors of all ages can learn about electricity, atoms and alternative sources of energy.
