Bruderhaus Wildlife Park
At the Bruderhaus Wildlife Park near Winterthur, adventurers follow the trail of wild animals such as wolves and lynxes.
The Bruderhaus Wildlife Park is located to the south of Winterthur, and is set amidst a secluded forest in a somewhat elevated location on the Eschenberg.
The park was built in 1890 and since then has been home to wild animals such as wolves, wild boar, lynxes, fallow deer and European bison. Nowadays there are around 80 animals of nine different species. According to the president of the Bruderhaus Wildlife Association, the aim of the park is to increase the understanding of the “wild relatives” of our current pets.
The wildlife park is open throughout the year and admission is free of charge. It gives young explorers the opportunity to observe animals – like the 13 wolves in their 12,000 m2 (130,000 sq.ft) enclosure ‒ at close quarters.
Besides a restaurant, there is also a picnic area with benches and fountain, where visitors can enjoy a bite to eat and even barbecue their own food – although they need to provide the firewood themselves.
Free of charge
