Just a very nice zoo. It's always worth a visit there because there are cute offspring, because you always see something different, because a lot is being renovated and completely rebuilt, because there are native species of animals there, because it is very family-friendly, because you can take a break in the café because there is no entry fee, because ... it is simply pure relaxation.

At the right time of year you can see many young animals there. They're just cute and cute. For example, today I petted a tarpan foal, very cuddly - and did not set a good example.
I have often thought about my favorite animals: I think it's the donkey.
I think I've been there more than 100 times. I always find something new, exciting - and yet I'm always completely relaxed when I've been there. Also the bear enclosure: I can watch the bears there for a long time and I like the enclosure with the pond and the waterfall, the tree trunks - simply made very nicely.
Then the small animals, rabbits, squirrels, mice ..,
The chickens, peacocks, owls, the free flight hall ...
Every visit is a win.
But just go and see for yourself.

The zoo is beautiful at all times and you can relax perfectly.
There is something new to discover almost every year. (New animals, new enclosure or various other innovations)

Heimat-Tierpark Olderdissen - open 24 hours
The Heimat-Tierpark Olderdissen is a popular destination for families with children, for kindergartens and school classes. Here many children see their first forest and wild animal live and in color. Over 450 animals in 90 different species can be observed. Some animals are rarely or no longer found in the wild.
The enclosures that corresponded to the previously practiced exhibition of animals have been replaced in the last few years by systems that correspond to the latest zoological knowledge of animal welfare that is largely appropriate to the species.
The animals, which have voluntarily settled near their peers, for example, prove that the approximately 16 hectare facility (one hectare is about the size of a football field) with its ponds, meadows and forests does not only attract people Colony of wild herons.
And if it says: "Warning! Free-running alpine marmots! ”Shows once again what idea the concept of the Olderdissen home zoo is based on: the zoo as a place for active learning, where you can see, experience, understand and pay attention to local nature and its animals.

Crowded on the weekends during the day, Olderdissen is probably the most popular destination for family outings in Bielefeld. The park is open 24/7/365 and free of charge, donation boxes are in the entrance area at the old Meierhof.

Unfortunately there was only one female left of the original pack, so the zoo has recently attempted to socialize Wölfin Rieke with the male Aik. Result: Three cuddly wolf puppies, who sometimes play directly at the fence in the evening hours. (As of July 2018)

In the wild, only a few of these shy animals will get to face, but live in Olderdissen two deep-lipped lynxes, which sometimes nap all day on their rocks in the sun and roll at most times to the other side. At present (July 2018) there are also two cubs in the enclosure.
