About
The HAUS ZUR WILDNIS forms the focal point of Falkenstein National Park Centre. The building’s unique architectural design is fascinating in its own right, though it can’t quite steal the show from the centre’s stunning views of the 1,315-metre Großer Falkenstein. In the moment there are several different exhibitions in the building, while the main exibition is replanned. The centre’s root gallery is a particularly memorable experience, where you can stroll through the layers of soil under the ground, getting to know the small creatures that populate the subterranean world as you go. Kids are guided by Schratzl, our loveable mascot, as he leads the way between the centre’s interactive exhibits and play stations. In addition to the popular lynx and wolves, the animal enclosures are also home to two less well-known former inhabitants of the Bavarian Forest: wild horses and aurochs. While wild horses populated the steppe landscape here after the last ice age, aurochs inhabited the forest

Easy walking, convenient parking, fun inside and out

The looped trail makes it easy to go up and quick to come down. Even if you have a stroller as we saw many people with young kids. Our older children enjoyed looking for the animals within their large enclosures, striding across the covered bridge, and exploring the museum. The only cost was for parking.

There should be animals here, but very few were seen

The good thing is that there's no entrance fee here, only the parking costs a bit and otherwise you can make a small donation. Also, it wasn't crowded at all, even though the weather was excellent. Then the less than optimal point: from all of the animals that should reside here, we were able to spot only two wolves and them from a distance, too. None of the wild horses or cow or lynx. This was quite disappointing. Maybe one should join the guided tour, if the guide has some tricks to lure the creatures out.

Great value for money

A National Park that principally has 4 animals within: Lynx, Wolves, Auroch and wild horses. Entrance is free (although parking is charged before 6pm (afterwards its free). If you have a disability problem you might find it difficult to walk to the enclosures as the ascent is steep in places. As keen photographers we concentrated on the wolves and the lynx. Make sure you get there early (fed early morning) for the wolves who move as a pack and are ideally photographed / watched from the covered walkway. The two lynx will need some time to wait for them as they are very elusive and secretive. Great modern restaurant with all staff being very helpful.
