Over 5000 people took the opportunity to get first-hand an comprehensive information on the biggest construction site in Saarland: the Holiday Park at Lake Bostal. Following the invitation of the developer SHS, especially the future central unit with its spectacular Aquamundo Waterworld and the so-called Market Dome raised the visitors´ interest. As a consequence, long waiting times for the two guided tours had to be accepted, but this could be easily bridged by strolling around the nearby holiday villages or a round trip on the spacious area by sightseeing train.
For Minister Maas, the Holiday Park with its various attractions and 500 holiday houses was very impressive: ` It is enormous which masses of soil were moved here and how perfectly the Park fits its surroundings. ` This was also the general tenor among the visitors after they had toured the construction site. Many people could hardly believe that the construction work can really be finished in time by July 1st for delivery to the future operator Center Parcs. For the expert tour guides and Bernd Therre, Managing Director of SHS, there is, however, no doubt about this: `We will be able to pass on the Holiday Park to Center Parks punctually on July 1st . This will open a new chapter of tourism in Saarland. `
Not only the construction site itself but also the information booths of Center Parcs and the Tourist Information Sankt Wendeler Land were in great demand. Moreover, there was also a strong interest in the sales company KPS Invest which is in charge of marketing the holiday houses. Information regarding the acquisition of holiday houses for investment purposes was much demanded.
