Park for wolves, bears and lynxes looking for a new home. Most bears come from catastrophic husbandry conditions and are given a second life here that is as species-appropriate as possible for this park. Accordingly, the park cannot be compared to a normal zoo or animal park. There are signs everywhere, for example, explaining how to react to certain behavior of the animals. Admission is relatively high at € 9 per person (€ 8.5 with the KONUS guest card), but worth every penny due to the great animal welfare project that is supported with this! A visit is highly recommended!
