June 2013 saw the opening of a new theme park called 'Funpark' in Meppen, Lower Saxony, where the focus is firmly on 'fun, speed and action'. A quad-bike track, a beach buggy circuit and a 4x4 off-road course guarantee adventure off the tarmac. You can also put your skills to the test on the indoor go-kart track, whatever the weather. This season until December the motorsports events complex is open on Saturdays and Sundays. Future plans for the park also include a beach club with jet skis and an official race circuit.
Not to be missed: Germany hosts 35 international sporting events every year.
