Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    In addition to the treetop path, the National Park Center Lusen also offers a very beautiful animal sanctuary. Since it is relatively extensive with about 7km roundabout, it is also suitable for a long Sunday walk. For the 7 km long circular route you should let 3-4 hours. Two shortcut variants reduce the distance to 3 km and the walking time to about 1 ½ hours. If you want to see lynx, wolf, wildcat, otter, bison, bear and many other animals up close, you will really get their money's worth here. Unlike any zoo, you can tell that the animal enclosures have been made for the animals and not for the visitors.
    Highly recommended!

    Plus point: paths are cleared and split in winter.

    Opening hours and prices:
    Free admission all year round

    Patience and attention, the animals are often very close and not deterred by the visitors.

    Absolutely worthwhile; In the animal free area, there are all the animals to see that were once native in the Bavarian Forest and it is now partly again. Due to the enclosure size, not all animals are always visible and you should therefore bring a lot of time (of course the necessary amount of luck is also included).
    The animal outdoor area is very popular with photographers and if you want to take photos you should be equipped because of the extensive enclosures with enough focal length.

    In addition to the treetop path, one must absolutely look at the animal park in the middle of the forest.
    Beautiful!

    Directly at Neuschönau you will find one of the most beautiful and interesting visitor facilities in the Bavarian Forest. Covering an area of around 250 hectares, between Neuschönau and Altschönau you will find the large animal sanctuary of the Bavarian Forest National Park, where around 40 different bird and mammal species from local animal life live in 16 large enclosures and aviaries. In the spacious landscape enclosures (pure enclosure area approx. 40 hectares) with natural habitat backdrops, the inhabitants can live according to their species-specific daily rhythm - running, climbing, bathing, sleeping and even withdrawing completely.

    Informative boards on the enclosures also provide much worth knowing about the inhabitants of the animal rights area.
