Tier-Freigelande - Nationalpark Bayerischer Wald, Neuschonau

4.7
#1 of 16 in Outdoors in Lower Bavaria
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.

    Beautiful hiking trail through the forest. Close to Elche access. Bison in rut just great, what kind of Colossi. Dog owners are not locked and can also run through the Park. Suitable for wheelchair.

    The entire site is very extensive, but partly accessible. The animal enclosures are very large for the benefit of animals, so you can't see the animals more. The way from enclosure to enclosure are very far. We did not the whole round (weather permitting).

    There are not always all the animals, but that only shows they can search their withdrawal options at any time and it's so! Others again unimpressed let by the visitors, photographed like small stars to the delight of visitors. The terrain is good to bewandern, also for strollers and wheelchair accessible! Was interesting and good to expand his knowledge, a great hike!

  • Amazing area, very well organised ized in terms of tracks
  • Beautiful views. Perfect for hiking.
  • Simply put - beautiful and large forest. It spreads over quite a lot of area, offers well-marked hiking and cycling trails. I am not giving it 5 stars, because I was expecting a richer wilderness with wild animals and so on. But I was only able to spot a fox once. In my opinion, the network of roads is a bit too prominent and as a whole, the area is settled quite a bit. So it is not quite a wilderness with no touch of civilisation. On the pros side, there is an excellent network of bus stops which brings you to heads of trails. We were living in a youth guest house - I can highly recommend that, it is very conveniently located in the heart of the National Park with good access to many trails.
  • Wonderful, especially during the winter.
  • Beautiful nature. Various hikes and walks. Some are more challenging and others are family friendly. The photos is taken at the oldest tree in the Bavarian forest!
