Ketteler Hof family park in Lavesum,
Germany is one of the family-operated
businesses that indisputably belongs to
the large group of hidden champions.
The park is located more or less
halfway between the cities of Münster
and Gelsenkirchen in the beautiful
rural surroundings of this traditionally
agricultural region south of Münster.
Driving along the country roads
through the villages in this area, one
sees innumerable signs for horseback
riding centers and farm shops. This
idyllic environment is such a major
contrast to that of the industriallyrooted cities located nearby such
as Gelsenkirchen, Recklinghausen
or Oberhausen. These concentrated
population centers are the source of
most of Ketteler Hof's visitors, with
average attendance figures in recent
years running at between 350,000 to
400,000 visitors! Many of the residents
in these cities come from migration
backgrounds and have large families
with several children, a fact reflected in
the park's visitor structure.

Visit us at the IAAPA
in Orlando,
Nov. 19 - 22
Booth 4867!

Praktisch: Die neue Metallspielstruktur ,,WallHolla" von Lappset irritiert zunächst ­ erweist sich jedoch
als beliebt und sinnvoll. Vom direkt angrenzenden neuen Grillplatz können Eltern die Spielenden leicht
im Auge behalten.

Do-it-yourself is a hit
The appeal and charm of Ketteler Hof
is distinguished by several hundred
individual play equipment facilities
spread throughout the park's 32 play
areas. The park currently covers twelve
hectares and the various play areas
are parceled off from one another by a
lush population of trees, most of which

are broad-leaved varieties providing
plenty of shade. In contrast, visitors to
Ketteler Hof won't find any flowerbeds
(to trample)!
One striking feature at Ketteler Hof is
that there are no waiting lines worthy
of being called genuine "waiting lines",
except at the park's summer toboggan
run!
