    The “Park with a Soul” is growing
 sustainably - on March 30, 2012 HANSA-
       PARK starts into the Season
Our huge unique theme world, “The HANSEATIC LEAGUE
in EUROPE” will be extended by a large new section featuring up to
14m high buildings from London, Ribe and Bergen. London was
home to the famous Hanseatic League “Steelyard”. Ribe, one of
Denmark’s oldest cities and most important ports in earlier times, is
our neighbour’s treasure trove of HANSEATIC LEAGUE traditions.
“Tyske Bryggen”, the kontor [trading post] in Bergen dating back to
1360, was Norway’s most important port city until 1880 and a place
of special significance for Lübeck’s branch of the HANSEATIC

At the Children’s World the Children’s Jungle Park, an indoor play
area, geared towards children up to 1.40m in height, is taking shape.
It will also feature a play area for the tiny tots so that parents can take
along their smaller children, too. This is our response to a frequently
expressed desire by our guests to cater to children too tall to be
admitted to the Kiddie Camp (maximum height: 1.20m). Now older
siblings can enjoy their very own play-and-explore area. The facility is,
of course, fully roofed and heated so that fun is guaranteed no matter
what the weather is like.

North Germany’s biggest park parade starts into the 2012 season
with a total of three new themed floats, new music and quite a few
new costumes for the more than 60 participants.

At the Realm of the Trolls, HANSA-PARK’s new themed play
area, Norway’s age-old myth is revived (from the summer of 2012).

Behind the scenes HANSA-PARK continues to make every effort to
protect the environment. Numerous projects are underway. The
park plans to reduce its annual CO2 emissions by almost 400
tonnes in future. HANSA-PARK has already been recognised for its
environmental efforts in 2002 when the Studien- und
Fördergesellschaft der Schleswig-Holsteinischen Wirtschaft, a
business association for promoting regional business, awarded
HANSA-PARK the “Environmentally-friendly Business” prize. With
the implementation of a photovoltaic plant, a heat recovery
ventilation system and improved energy efficiency the park has
reached a new level in its efforts to combine economy and ecology.

                        New for 2012
Birthday boys and girls will have their very own train

The new train has already arrived and has been tested extensively, in
particular by the grown-up children among our staff. And all have
given its quality and fun value the thumbs-up. The smoke puffs out as
it should, the whistle sound typical of old steam locomotives is pitch-
perfect, the parquet flooring of the carriages has been varnished to
perfection, the modern technical equipment such as the
announcement and sound system are invisible, the craftsmanship
satisfies the most demanding standards. We now hope very much that
you and your children will enjoy the train as much as we did.

And here is why all birthday children and their guests will be eager to
celebrate their party at HANSA-PARK’s children’s birthday party

    In 2012 birthday children will have their very own parade train
     on wheels that will make its rounds in all kinds of weather.
    Up to 24 children can board the train so birthday children
     can take along all their friends and even their parents to
     share the fun with them.
    Each birthday group can reserve the train exclusively for one
     ride through the park.

Make sure to book well in advance. The train is, of course, free of
charge. It’s HANSA-PARK’s birthday present in addition to the free
admission all birthday children up to 14 years already enjoy when they
celebrate their birthday with their friends at the park.

A Children’s Jungle Park for children up to 1.40m in height

New for 2012 is our Children’s Jungle Park, a play land for our young
guests up to 1.40m in height. Here, they can romp around and play
even if the weather is not up to scratch.

The play land is the long-awaited roofed and heated attraction for all
children who have grown too tall to be allowed into our Kiddie
Camp, which is primarily geared towards our toddler guests up to
1.20m in height.
Parents are welcome to accompany their children however a certain
level of physical fitness may be required just to make sure they’ll be
able to keep up with their children …

And our little guests can enjoy themselves in their own area of the
play land for as long as their older siblings have disappeared in the
depths of the jungle.

The 5th section of our theme world, “The HANSEATIC
LEAGUE in EUROPE” - London, Ribe and Bergen - will
welcome our guests in 2012

We plan to complete the 5th construction phase of our theme world

Currently we are working on up to 14m high historical buildings from
England’s London, which became famous for its Steelyard during the
times of the Hanseatic League, Denmark’s Ribe, once one of our
neighbour’s most important port cities and the famous Norwegian
city of Bergen, which used to be the largest city of the Scandinavian
Just to nip any rumours in the bud: Of course there is no connection
at all between our selection of former Hanseatic cities and Hanseatic
kontors [trading posts] for the 5th construction phase and the world’s
largest sporting event celebrated on the British Isles in 2012.
In any case, the new section will be constructed in the same
outstanding quality as the previous ones, using the best traditional
craftsmanship and incorporating state-of-the-art engineering

Like the Holstentor’s the new buildings’ quality is unmatched.
Reconstructed true to the original and with extraordinary love of
detail only original materials such as stone, timber and plaster are used
to reconstruct beautiful building facades of these cities.

After its completion, the theme world “The Hanseatic League in
Europe” at HANSA-PARK will invite guests on a unique journey
into European history, from Bergen in Norway to Paris, from La
Rochelle to Lisbon, from Bruges to Visby and from Novgorod to
Venice - featured with imposing architectonical pieces of art; real,
authentic buildings that reach up to 18 metres into the sky.

Hands-on experiencing and learning, fun and education, geography
and history - with this new themed area Germany’s only family park
by the sea combines all of the above in a unique mixture of
sophisticated entertainment and interactive education.
With its innumerable maritime exhibits and the historical walkable
ship models that invite children to explore them HANSA-PARK has
become a one-of-a-kind cultural leisure facility for all age groups that
is unrivalled in Germany.
The new themed area, which is expected to be fully completed within
the next couple of years, provides a unique and broad picture of the
HANSEATIC LEAGUE’s architectural history. Add on to that an
event exhibition, event gastronomy and historically designed
Hanseatic kontors [merchant offices] and you’ll have an outstanding
family and cultural offer that is unmatched in Germany.

HANSA-PARK has been in existence for almost 35 years now and
today, more than ever, it is a part and an expression of North
Germany’s uniqueness and identity.

By the way: this new attraction will make HANSA-PARK in
Sierksdorf near Lübeck located directly by the Baltic Sea Germany’s
first leisure and family park that presents such an exciting
combination of cultural experience and fun.

Why? Because the park tells a story presented in a way that is possible
only at HANSA-PARK located directly by the Baltic Sea, on the Bay
of Lübeck - a story from the Medieval Ages, a story of trade and
seafaring, of freedom and adventure - a story that has become a
legend but is still very much alive: “The Hanseatic League in

HANSA-PARK is gradually becoming a unique brand among theme
parks, geared in particular towards families looking for quality and
interested in the art and history of the European HANSEATIC

“When the theme world is completed, our guests will say: ‘There is no
other place where you can experience so much European history in
such a short time for so little money and, on top, in such imaginative
settings!’”, describes managing director Andreas Leicht the aim of

The Realm of the Trolls – Norway’s age-old myth will be
revived at HANSA-PARK’s new themed play area in 2012

Opposite of the 5th section of the theme world “The Hanseatic
League in Europe” a new themed play area is expected to be
completed by the summer of 2012. Designed in the style of historical
Bergen it will take visitors into the world of Norwegian legends and
myths. The Realm of the Trolls will come to life – and delight all our
younger guests who will be only too eager to dash off into the world
of Norway’s little lads.

Redesigning of the Super Splash area - first construction phase
planned for 2012

According to surveys conducted among our guests Super Splash still
is one of the most popular and timeless water attractions. We have
therefore decided to systematically redesign the entire area and key it
to a theme. For 2012 we are planning to complete two construction

In the first phase we will redesign the slow-down area / brake run
where the boats submerge into the water. Natural rock formations
will give a first impression of how the ride will look like later when
the boats take a plunge through an historical ship wreck into the lake.
The ship wreck is planned for the 2013 season.

The water play area next to the slow-down area will also be
completely redesigned. The world’s largest beach chair and the
historical bathing machines will later find their final home there.

New parade music and new parade floats for our HANSA-
PARK Parade in 2012

In 2012 our HANSA-PARK parade will present the first parade float
keyed to the theme world of “The Hanseatic League in Europe”. This
very special vehicle features a lot of functions; among others guests
will be able to enjoy a ride in the dark. And to round it all off, new
parade music will accompany the parade participants.

In 2012 sustainability is a key concern of HANSA-PARK

From the very beginning on HANSA-PARK has taken countless
measures that prove that economy and ecology do not exclude each
other. And you, our guests, have made every effort to support us.
Such you have accepted edible wafers as a way to serve French fries,
etc. and did your share to separate the rubbish in the park. We now
take pride in the fact that our green-roof projects (the latest example
being The Midgard Serpent in 2011), our waste prevention and
recycling efforts as well as the reduction of noise emissions were
awarded the “Environmentally-friendly Business” prize by the
Studien- und Fördergesellschaft der Schleswig-Holsteinischen
Wirtschaft, a business association for promoting regional business,
as early as 2002.

From the 2012 season onwards we will put in place an array of
measures that will allow us to save almost 400,000kg of CO2 per
year. The use of energy-saving LED light bulbs further contributes to
that aim as are the new installation of a photovoltaic plant, the use of
state-of-the-art cooling and deep-freezing aggregate technologies with
integrated heat exchangers and a new, ultramodern central
compressed-air supply unit which is also equipped with heat
exchangers which allow for high energy efficiency.

     Shows and Stars at HANSA-PARK in 2012
“The only place in the world where you can dream with your eyes wide open” -

The above quote by Ernest Hemmingway certainly applies to
HANSA-PARK’s shows that have long been famous far beyond
Germany. In the new season our shows will feature lots of new
routines, artists and music, and some of the shows are
completely new.

       North Germany’s No. 1 Variety Theatre
                is proud to present
               “City Dreams 2012”
The show called “City Dreams 2012” takes our guests on a
breathtaking new journey to the most exciting big cities in the world.

In Las Vegas six young acrobats perform daredevil routines on the
“Chinese pole”.

From there, you’ll be whisked off to the Landing Piers of the
Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Against the backdrop of the north
European metropolis the threesome with the name of ToRiMe show
world-class contortionist and balancing acts.

On the journey goes to New York, where the Puyang Boys playfully
jump through tires piled on top of each other, contorting and twisting
their bodies with such ease that it looks as if it is perfectly natural to
move like that.

The next stop of the city tour is Atlantis, the ancient city that sank
into the ocean. Here, four young acrobats present a top-of-their-
league performance that is unmatched in the world. Strength,
elegance and fascinating body control unite in perfect harmony.

The stunning finals of City Dreams 2012 feature all artists and
acrobats back in Berlin in front of the Brandenburger Tor. We are
sure you’ll have a brilliant time!

             New Multimedia and Special Effects Show:
                      “Dream World 2012”

A completely new show that comes with three state-of-the-art digital
laser systems, hundreds of LED show lights, digital surround-sound
producing several 10,000-watt output and various special effects such
as CO2 fog jets and fire flashes: guests will be transfixed by the
stunning experience at North Germany’s biggest show theatre.

It's hard not to get drawn in by the show. However we would like to
point out that this spectacle of the special kind may not be suitable
for people with pacemakers and/or other disorders.

                          Water Circus
John Burke‘s charming sea lions at the water circus are back with
new tricks that will leave no eye dry and have the audience roaring
with laughter!

                     HANSA-PARK PARADE

Every afternoon (in dry weather only) all dancers, musicians, acrobats,
artists and the comic characters Winnie, Orki, Flipsi, Pingi, Leo and
Emmi say “thank you” to all the guests for coming to the park and
cheering them on with a colourful show parade featuring fancy
fantasy floats. Over the years the parade has become one of the most
popular events with HANSA-PARK’s guests - “because it’s such
great fun”.

The opening float is a colourful Mexican fruit cart from HANSA-
PARK’s MEXICO theme world. The Mexican caballeros on the float
have such broad smiles and radiate such joy of living that you can’t
help it - you just have to smile with them! A screaming-red vintage
fire engine and its little brother, a Viking boat from the "Land of the
Vikings" theme world and the giant carriage from "Bonanza City"
follow close behind. The parade concludes with the African jungle car
float – the Old-Time Fun Fair’s Safari jeeps wave their ‘hello’.

The costume-clad participants and the themed floats are a unique
show in their own right. Dancing pink elephants, tame gorillas and
funny ostriches get all the guests to join in the fun while the parade is
winding its way through the park.

By the way: once more HANSA-PARK is a pioneer in the North –
apart from HANSA-PARK at Sierksdorf near Lübeck, no other
North German leisure park offers its guests a parade of this

Visit of the Shadow Creatures

When at twilight dark elves, nightmares and revenants crawl out of
their hidings, the hour of scare and spookiness has arrived...

From September 21 through 23 and from September 28 through
October 03 the Curse of Novgorod, the old thatched-roof cottage,
the bear’s cove and the Shadow World of Utgard will turn into
spooky attractions that are haunted by werewolves, scarecrows and
other eerie creatures who follow courageous visitors on their way into
the otherworld.

In the Shadow World of Utgard the hour of scare and spookiness
starts at dusk (about 7.45 p.m.), in the areas of the other attractions at
6 p.m. already. In wet weather the area of the Shadow World of
Utgard must remain closed for safety reasons and the opening hours
of the park and ride attractions may change.

Come before they get you...

“Autumn Magic by the Sea” - only at HANSA-PARK

When in the autumn the days get shorter and the sun says ‘goodbye’ a
bit earlier every day, HANSA-PARK will be transformed into a sea of
lights. Daily from Saturday, October 06 through Sunday, October 21
Germany‘s only event park by the sea will celebrate the end of the
season with a brilliant “Autumn Magic by the Sea” festival. When the
night falls, everywhere in the park light sculptures and pieces of art
will come to life, and the well-kept grounds and attractions will be
bathed in a magical glow.

The Parade of Lights

Like a fairy-tale parade the procession winds its way through the park
- countless lights cast their shine from the floats and HANSA-
PARK’s acrobats dressed in light-studded costumes wave to their
guests - HANSA-PARK’s Parade of Lights, the only one of its
kind in Germany, will enchant the hearts of young and older guests
alike and conjure a magical smile on their faces at the beginning of the
dark season.

And at the “Plaza del Mar” the end of each day will be celebrated
with an awe-inspiring performance crowned by a fireworks display
that takes off directly from the walls of the “Arena”.

For safety reasons the parade of lights and the evening show can take
place only in dry and calm weather.

Throughout the “Autumn Magic by the Sea” festival a special
admission ticket at Euro 16.00 will be available from 3 p.m. onwards.

Craftsmanship of the Vikings

In 2012 a whittler and an ornamental blacksmith will demonstrate live
the inimitable craftsmanship of the Vikings at HANSA-PARK. Based
on age-old patterns, artfully carved and lovingly painted down to the
very last detail, the ornaments will ultimately adorn the buildings at
HANSA-PARK’s “Land of the Vikings”.
Visitors of HANSA-PARK have the opportunity to watch the artists
performing their fascinating work from up close.

Almost 60 acrobats and artists have been engaged by HANSA-PARK
for the 2012 season.
