One hour drive from Berlin brings you to an UNESCO protected area, the Biosphärenreservat Schorfheide. It contains the biggest continuous forest area in Germany, about 240 lakes, 1000 moorlands and natural grasslands. The Wildpark Schorfheide was constructed within the idea of this protected area and it shelters animals which are or have been domestic in this landscape. The animals live in vast enclosures on an area of approximately 105 ha. Visitors can walk around between the species-appropriate enclosures on walking trails.
If you want to go there: It’s next to Groß Schönbeck or Zerpenschleuse and the entry for adults is 7€, for children 4,50 €.
Animals to see: goats, otters, peacocks, rabbits, wild boars and pigs, wild horses, different kinds of cattle, deer, bisons, mooses, mufflons, wolves, raccoons and the very rare lynx. Enjoy the photos!
