Europa-Park and its six themed hotels, as well as the Camp Resort and Europa-Park Camping, will welcome guests from May 29.
Hotel restaurants will gradually reopen from May 18, beginning with outside areas. Rulantica water park will remain closed until further notice.
The theme park will reopen with new measures in order to minimise the risk of infection, including limiting the number of visitors with day-based online ticketing.
Europa-Park will be offering day-based tickets for the 2020 summer season from May 13 via the online ticket shop.

Europa-Park will also comply with safety distances, using distance markings in waiting areas and restaurants.
In addition, it will implement extended hygiene standards and processes, with more disinfection stations, and regular cleaning and disinfecting.
“We kindly ask you, dear guests, to observe the mandatory minimum distance as well as the additional hygiene requirements which apply until further notice at Europa-Park.”
New digital technologies will be used for queue management and social distancing, while Europa-Park will use contactless payment.
Europa-Park is looking forward to welcoming international guests when cross-border traffic is possible again, and is optimistic about the opening of Rulantica.
