The Further Wild Garden is a biotope with many native animal species, including birds, game, reptiles and insects. In addition, an underwater observation station provides an insight into the local underwater world. The 2.5 meter deep pond and its inhabitants like pike, zander, perch, bitterling and roach can be observed through six thick glass panes from below. The pond holds 900,000 litres of water and is fed from groundwater sources.
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday from May to October there are guided tours through the game park at 2 pm. Registration is not required.
The garden around the underwater observation station has been growing since 1990. In the beginning there were 10.000 square meters, today there are 100.000. Beside the flora and fauna there are also some art objects of mostly native artists to discover. So statues made of wood, like the Moormann, various wild wood furniture and the large dinosaur skeleton.
