Featuring fun and excitement for young and old, Bayern Park in the Lower Bavarian town of Reisbach is an ideal destination for the whole family. Boredom will be banished from your vocabulary thanks to the park’s more than 70 attractions – ranging from the donkey run to the longest white-water rafting ride in Germany. The park’s numerous events throughout the year promise particularly memorable experiences.
Highlights for younger visitors
Climbing, hopping, sliding or riding – Bayern Park is home to around 20 age-appropriate rides for its youngest guests. While small princesses majestically circle the fountain on the swan carousel, the rough kids can release their pent-up energy on fast, action-packed rides featuring pedal cars, wiggle racers and electric scooters. An array of playgrounds, train rides and carousels also provide a fun diversion for the little ones.
No shortage of thrills
Ample action is also available for the big boys and girls – particularly in the form of several heart-pounding rollercoasters. The “Freischütz”, for example, accelerates from zero to 80 km/h in 2.3 seconds – a pure adrenaline rush lasting a total of 40 seconds and featuring three different inversion elements. But don’t underestimate the thrill factor of the steep slide, the giant boat swings or the log flume either. And the 600-metre-long white-water rafting ride offers plenty of adventure for water lovers.
Animals at Bayern Park
Bayern Park started out as a breeding ground for red and fallow deer. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that many creatures call the adjacent animal park home. Here, you can observe lynxes, Japanese sika deer and ibexes, or get up close with miniature horses, tiny donkeys and fluffy sheep.
Birds of prey and pirates ahoy!
Their size and spectacular aerial feats leave onlookers gasping – experience birds of prey, like steppe eagles, vultures or falcons, in action and learn interesting facts about these kings of the air. Exciting adventures also await during the Easter, Whitsun and summer holidays thanks to Bayern Park’s resident band of pirates. Captain Blackbeard and Cook Sven take you on a grand treasure quest while regaling their hearties with stories of swashbuckling yore.
Bayern Park – also a hit with adventurous pensioners
Grandma and grandpa are also sure to get their money’s worth at Bayern Park. An idyllic train ride to take in the landscapes or a boat trip across Bayern Park Lake is perfect for those looking for something a bit more contemplative. The carefully crafted cottage garden, historic farmhouses and baroque church are also worth a visit, and a leisurely stroll through the animal park offers a good excuse to stretch the legs.
Practical information for your visit
Anyone in need of a short break can rest on the numerous benches found throughout the park and observe the surrounding hustle and bustle in comfort. There are also three restaurants, where visitors big and small can refuel and refresh for further adventures. Changing rooms and toilets can be found at several spots throughout the park. Dogs are unfortunately not allowed at Bayern Park.
