  • All enclosures are so lovingly and thoughtfully designed, all the animals look very neat and everyone is very friendly. The Park is beautifully landscaped and is huge, so that the many people who can already be recognized the number of parked vehicles, go well. In many places in the Park, there are refreshment facilities for food and drinks. For children there are playgrounds, the toilet is clean including available winding space. The birds of prey show is spectacular and is explained by the hawkers just fine! The cherished the Snow Leopard, which barely there are in the wild, is also very nice and serves to preserve this species. A useful project! If there is awarded 10 points, then I give you these 10 points and even more! :-) Unfortunately we have have seen but also time and again on this day that man too often treated the animals in the park without respect. As an example I see the parents, who hold their children not in the House when the Tigers to wild banging on the glass. The bear in the bear enclosure and Timberwölfen food not thrown to, no, they were PELTED partly with the Chuck to catch their attention. Or the children have extremely loud yelling. It doesn't! Animals hear sometimes much better than we humans. The kids on top of it were placed on the narrowing coverage when the otters. This is so not problem. If then but the children with their feet so vigorously Herum stomp on the cover, that escape the animals in the other corner of the water basin, then but the parents must please tell their children what they should do. For the sake of the animal! I could list here are much much more, but that is beyond this scope. Is television to criticize the children. I like children very much and have two nieces and a godson. Rather, the criticism aimed at the parents, because here too we have seen situations that have surprised us greatly. Adults can read Yes mostly... The enclosure of the snow leopards are several signs that the guests ask that their dogs keep at least 5 metres distance from the enclosure and the glass pane. A male adult had however placed his dog right on the glass and the dog shows that coming over the Snow Leopard. Then came the Leopard and the dog jumped on the glass window and barked sharply. The Snow Leopard has frightened himself and snapped behind the disc. This behavior is completely instinctively right from the Snow Leopard, because at this point, I would add that the Snow Leopard pair has just young. I wonder if the owner had gone before so if there would not be this glass. A situation that is completely incomprehensible to me and once again shows how ruthless are the most visitors. At the birdcage of the Eagle, a grown woman had animated her dog to leap up and bark at the Eagle. Also it must be but now really! I am of the opinion that the dogs more should have no access to the Wildlife Park, because again, it is not the animal that behaves incorrectly, but man. If this requirement is changed if necessary, it is too bad for the other dog owners who no longer can take with them their dogs, even if they have done this correctly and have respected the regulations of the Park. There are of course other guests who well know how to be exemplary in the Park. Unfortunately these are rather fewer people. And finally, I should like to mention that the way, apart from the Tiger enclosure, which leads to the Mouflon, is really nice. Because here the wild fallow deer, can be fed. The animals are very trusting! One is here so close to the animals. Simply magical! Unfortunately there are also parents who must lift into their children into the animal herd to take a picture. Some children know no better and really harass the animals. Also here is to respect but the animal. Maybe there should be staff or volunteers but also on some of the enclosures and aviaries, which, if necessary, friendly and with a certain emphasis, give tips about correct behavior guests. I believe that the welfare of the animal has highest priority. Just as the animal or wildlife parks, zoos and other public bodies can continue to exist and provide a meaningful part to protect endangered animals and plants if necessary through the captive breeding projects. So once again the call to the guests: Please respect all animals and they are considerate on the grounds of the Wildlife Park! Friendly greetings

  • Really good wildlife park with lots of animals and opportunities for feeding them. Our son had a great time both walking through the park and also at the large play area which made for a great family day out. One of the best animal parks we've visited.
  • A very nice open park though with a few small enclosures. I am a zoo keeper and therefore not a fan of that guests can buy feed and feed most of the animals. It gives them a unnatural behavior. The bird of prey show was very nice.
  • Beautiful park with many animals that can be fed. Most animals are therefore quite tame and not at all shy. The bird show was wonderful.
  • Fantastic animal park great for kids and families including dogs. Great value for money.
  • really cool! all the animals are so cute and they seem not to suffer like at the zoo
