Experience nature & discover animals

Get close to the land

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