Great for a family outing to see bears, wolfs, buffalos etc. Go around 2.30 pm that's when it's feeding time.

Of the rare places where one can see almost free bears in a semi-natural setting - much better than in most zoos, and much less time-consuming and safer than spending days in the wild for it. Besides the bears there are wolves - generally more...More

Nestled in the Jura mountains, this family-run animal park has elevated walkways from which even the shortest guest can enjoy unobstructed views of bears, wolves, and lynx. The enclosures are huge, and full of trees, rock faces, and water features--the animals seem to be quite...More

This place was nice for a short visit, it's not a big zoo with a lot of animals but the nice thing was to see the animals free acting normal in their own environment instead of inside a cage.
