You won’t get this close to wild animals almost anywhere else. Natural enclosures, most of them without any bars and fences, make the Bad Mergentheim wildlife park in the Main-Tauber district a really intense family experience.
The best thing is that the animals at the Bad Mergentheim wildlife park are just as happy as the visitors. Roughly 70 species of wildlife animals can be encountered here, including bears, lynxes, bison, elks and Europe’s largest wolf pack with almost 30 animals.
The call of the wild – live.
Experience the normally shy animals (almost) up-close while they’re being fed and if that’s not enough you’re welcome to book a night in a tent right next to the pack with scary but beautiful howling and a bit of fear thrown in. There’s even a walk-through beaver lodge and children can find a play farm with petting zoo and imaginatively designed playgrounds like the Koboldburg. And there’s no shortage of good old pets here either: exciting work demonstrations show how people and animals can live in perfect harmony.
