The wildlife park first opened its doors in 1972 and the crowds began to arrive. There is just as much to do and see today: The 47 hectares are home to around 40 animal species. Among the most popular are the Arctic and European wolves, both of which can be viewed during the feeding tour for some extra excitement.The wildlife park is also open in winter – at weekends, on public holidays and during the school holidays.

Right from the start of your circular route around the wildlife park, you can see wild animals close up. The footpath leads past outdoor enclosures and directly past fallow deer, Dybowski's deer and Sika deer. The best thing is that you can also pet the animals and feed them by hand. Another enclosure houses muntjac deer. These shy dwarf deer come from South East Asia and will approach you who demonstrate a little patience.
Every day (except Fridays) at 2:30 p.m., the European wolves at the wildlife park demonstrate how hungry they are. During the feeding tour, you will learn all about the behaviour and way of life of the various animals. The feeding tour also includes lynxes and wildcats in the adjoining enclosure, as well as the brown bears.
Bald eagles, red kites and vultures fly just above the heads of visitors during the flight demonstration on the falconer's grandstand, which takes place daily at 3:30 p.m., with an additional demonstration at 11:30 a.m. during the high season. The stand offers standing room and seating for up to 1400 bird-lovers and a good view of the falconry area.
The forest adventure path (Walderlebnis-Pfad), with over 20 stations, provides an educational experience of the forest as an ecosystem.
One of the educational experiences on offer is the barefoot path (Barfuß-Pfad).The idea is to touch and discover various materials by walking barefoot along a 150-metre route.
The adventure playground (Abenteuerspielplatz) allows children to run and jump to their heart's content. An aerial runway and a see-saw offer plenty of opportunity for play. For those who like to interact with animals, there is the petting zoo just a few steps away.
The wildlife park is part of the theme park (Erlebnispark), which is about a ten-minute walk away.
During the high season, you can easily reach the wildlife park by taking the "Schnaufender Trullaner" train.
