Tier-Freigelande - Nationalpark Bayerischer Wald, Neuschonau

(4.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Allowing visitors to explore a pristine natural world teeming with wildlife, the landscaped enclosures of shelter more than 45 native species, including bears and wolves. Under the dense canopy of Central Europe's sprawling deciduous and coniferous forests, these natural enclosures cover a huge area of about 80 hectares (200 acres) and include several large aviaries. Explore this lush, natural world at your own pace, but be sure to stay on the designated park trail, which stretches for about 7 km (4.3 mi) through the Bavarian Forest. You can use several shortcuts to reduce the distance to approximately 3 km (1.9 mi). Either way, be prepared for this adventure walk by wearing shoes suitable for rough terrain.

  • The place reminds me of both Ähtäri Zoo and Ranua Zoo in Finland. The animal species shown in the Tier-Freigelände live or have lived in the area of the Bavarian Forest. E.g. the elks have been import...  more »
  • The entire Park is great. Beautiful trails, great outdoor enclosure and an incredibly nice feeling if one has rediscovered one of the numerous animals. Lots of space, many retreats for the wild animals - a dream. Only the wild cat enclosure seemed too small - so a point deduction!

  • He long circular route can be done in about three hours. Through lack of vegetation - clear - it is winter – the animals could be spotted almost in all enclosures. Of course it has even a camera, but the crowd of those who are "Professional or semi-professional" with the appropriate equipment, was great. Worth seeing but in any case, as here, much like in fishing, maintained with the huge lens on the moment of moments. Quiet was not to here but mostly. As holidaymakers looking for relaxation in calm and well cleared routes, remains only the humorous Variant. To see the photographer as part of the Besichtigungsprogammes. Laughed out loud and smile way sometimes also in me. The images have become probably great (as long as the animal in place has taken place). However, you can hear that agencies take no animal images from this enclosure. Wolf and Lynx can be often subject. It was great walking in great weather. In any case and to recommend - time humor included.
