    In the wild, lynxes are usually very shy animals. Here you can watch them climbing up trees, sneaking around in the area or just lazing around. Highlight is the daily feeding!

    From the observation form one can look over the fence. Now only one of the lynxes has to show up

    The lynx enclosure is a real highlight of this tour. The release project in the Harz Mountains is one of the flagship projects in Germany: Between 2000 and 2006, a total of 24 lynx were released here. At the enclosure at the Rabenklippe you can inform yourself comprehensively about the project and accompany a public feeding every Saturday (2.30 pm). If the lynx is shy and hiding, binoculars could help you!

    I always thought lynxes are a bit bigger than domestic cats - but that's not true. They have an average shoulder height of about 60 cm and weigh about 20 kg.

    At the lynx enclosure, it really pays to stay a moment longer and look out for the beautiful animals. If you are plagued by hunger, you can enjoy the view of the enclosure or the impressive nature in the Restaurant Rabenklippe just a few steps further.

    Lynx enclosure at the Rabenklippen
    Eye to eye with the lynx
    The brush ears are back in the Harz forests. But they are - like all cats - very shy. Anyone who sees them in the wild is a true lucky guy. So that everyone can admire them, we have built a lynx sanctuary on the Rabenklippe near Bad Harzburg. Here you can watch the lynxes Pamina, Paul, Alice, Ellen and Tamino basking in the sun, climbing trees or sneaking through their territory.
    Especially popular is our public lynx feeding. Here you can learn about the lynxes of our National Park staff and can observe the cats at close range during their meal.After a visit to the lynx enclosure, the nearby National Park Forest Restaurant Rabenklippe not only offers refreshments, but also one of the most beautiful views over the Eckertal and on the Brocken.

    The lynx enclosure is less than 4 km from the mountain station at the Burgberg (Bad Harzburg) and is located near the Waldgaststätte Rabenklippe. Since Wednesday and Saturday 14.30 clock the feeding takes place, the lynx were already 13.00 clock curious and were seen. In sunshine I recommend to take the way back above, because the Kaltenalstraße runs completely in the shade.

    The stamp office HWN 170 is easily hidden, if you come from the lynx enclosure. You have to go through the inn on the opposite side! There is the stamp box outside

    If you're lucky you can see a lynx. So far I have not had that.
    I can recommend the restaurant on the Rabenklippen directly nearby

    The lynx release project has been dealing with the Harz for several years. That's why you can always find lynx photo traps or information offers, like this lynx enclosure. If you want to know more, just drop in at a public performance: every Saturday at 14:30!

    Here your little ones can watch the lynx. If you plan the appointment well, you will be there live with a lynx feed. An almost sure chance to see the ears of the brush.

    From the lookout point the Brocken is visible in good weather.
    Near the lookout point and the lynx enclosure the bus no. 875 from Bad Harzburg stops.
