Photo Spot Details
The animal park is embedded in a gorgeous landscape, features a real impressive predator bird show, which takes place three times a day. The birds flying extreme close to the visitors (beware of your hairpiece). So photographing with a “not-so-far-reaching-lens” is easy and heavy cropping isn’t often necessary. Despite this, there is a children’s zoo, a lot of other animals as there are wolfes, (rein-)deer, penguins, goats, boars, guenons, especially european bison and other former resident animals, which are kind of rare nowadays and counting. You can go for an extend walk and/or by bus through this large property. At various times, a local photographer offers workshops (Manfred Delpho). Additionally there are a lot of events taking place all over the year.
