On this tour you will immerse yourself in the world of the bison and follow in the footsteps of these shaggy and magnificent animals. The bison is also called the European bison and is a European type of cattle. The animals were widespread in the primeval forests of western, central and south-eastern Europe until the early Middle Ages. After they became extinct, they had to be laboriously resettled.With the project “Wisente im Rothaargebirge”, an eight-headed herd consisting of a bull, five cows and two young animals was released into the wild in 2013. In December 2019, the herd had grown to around 25 animals.The "Wisent Wildnis am Rothaarsteig" offers a special insight into the life of the animals. A second herd of bison is at home there. You can experience the animals on a paid circular route, but you can continue your way without a visit. If you are traveling with children, they will get their money's worth here: Jump over streams, crawl through a badger den and master rock formations - the natural adventure trail is really fun!The bison path again summarized: It leads from Wingeshausen over the Rothaarkamm to Schmallenberg-Jagdhaus, through the picturesque valley of yours and over paths in the Bockeshorntal back to Wingeshausen. With fantastic views and various resting places, the 13.5-kilometer tour is a real pleasure for hiking.
