Experience nature & discover animals

Get close to the land

Observe prehistoric bison, feed horses, pet calves and actively experience nature with all of your senses – your children can do all of this in the neanderland, e.g. B. in the Neandertal, the oldest nature reserve in Germany. Lakes, rivers and streams, forests, fields and meadows make unique natural experiences possible, which are even more impressive under expert guidance. Be it in the Biological Station Haus Bürgel, the Neandertal Adventure World, the Abtskücher Pond or the recreational parks and lakes. And farm animals are the greatest thing for city children anyway.
