Bad Mergentheim Wildlife Park is home to over 70 species of animals, including the largest pack of wolves in Europe. You will hardly see any mesh wire, cages or bars - nearly all of the compounds are framed by hardly distinguishable borders, and created as near-natural open air enclosures. Keeping the animals as close to nature and species-appropriate as possible is the main focus. Compounds and enclosures are made mainly of natural materials.
The park also shows attachment to its region, featuring nearly exclusively European species, and keeping partnerships with regional companies. The motivation therfor lies in the family run structure of the wildlife park.
Twice a day, visitors can accompany the keepers on their feeding tour. Tours take approximately 2.5 hours, and start at 9.45 and 13.30 respectively. They start at the meeting point a few steps behind the cash desk, above the mountain area. In the course of the lap you visit eagles, owls and vultures, along with wolves, bears, beavers and waldrapps.
