    Supports the rangers and the preservation of the Hainich jungle and its inhabitants, the wild cats. Nicely laid out enclosure.

    A visit to the enclosure is a highlight. These wild cats are just worth seeing!

    The commented feedings are particularly interesting. The times (3 * daily) are currently stored in the link above.
    The two lynxes in the wildcat enclosure are still very shy and therefore can only be seen with a lot of luck.

    The opening and feeding times can be found at:
    In my opinion, a visit is only worthwhile if you take part in a feeding session (with explanations, this takes 30-45 minutes). The 4 wild cats are kept in individual enclosures and usually hide well outside of the feeding time. The lynx don't always show up either. Single entry for adults currently € 7.00, a visit to the exhibition rooms in the wildcat barn is included. Payment for admission only in the wildcat barn, where you will receive a chip for the turnstile of the enclosure.
