Hotel Charles Lindbergh- An Exclusive Experience by Day and Night

Phantasialand fans have been waiting on a new project for the last 4 years. It has finally come to life. In the middle of September, Rookburgh was unveiled to an eager audience. The project’s opening date was inevitably pushed back by the ongoing pandemic. This meant that an originally planned opening date of June wasn’t feasible. Therefore, the public’s anticipation and excitement had grown even more over the extra months of waiting.

Phantasialand’s brand new and third resort hotel, Charles Lindbergh, is intertwined with this exquisitely detailed themed world, and opened at the end of September. With a new lockdown recently announced in Germany, the resort has been forced to close again. Unfortunately, this meant the window of opportunity to visit this new hotel was very small.
