    Super wild park in the middle of nature. Something for everyone. And the children have always something to do.

    Unfortunately it was a bad experience to visit the Park. The Park has two overall categories of animals; the audience must feed them and those who do not have to be fed. We saw entire enclosures, where all animals are religiously followed the guests. Saw that some goats and alpacas ate quietly until there came a great bunch of kids so stressed they all towards the children. A poor brown bear sat in front of a glass window and licked at the tubes, where awaiting visitors could send food into it. The animals seemed on the way stressed (though not those who do not may be fed). Can therefore not recommend the place. It is a shame. The park itself is nice made. You walk around and get past a lot of wonderful animal from the northern hemisphere. You get two times through areas where deer go free. Here, it was great to see that some kjorte was looking away, if there were too many people and that the dogs were not welcome (there were alternative routes) in the enclosures.

    The Lüneburg Heath Wildlife Park welcomes visitors with an ample parking and a family entrance for the visitors. The Park can be explored well on mostly gravel roads. In addition to the domestic animals are also many birds and other European or Asian animals. The enclosure of the Tigers, wolves and lynxes are worthwhile. But even the fallow deer and the many free-range animals are an attraction. Watching families come here at their own expense and children have in addition to the animals, their energy free rein alternatively on many playgrounds. Worth seeing is the bird show, where you can admire the great birds of prey like eagles, Condor or Vulture during their flights. All in all a worthwhile Park, you should have looked at, if you're in the area.
