the Tiergarten

About forty wild animals use to live in the former hunting ground.

Today you can go stalking with your camera in the approx. 55 hectares large picturesque areal.
With a bit of luck, you can see moufflons and fallow deer
enjoying their portion of turnips.

 

The Tiergarten was established by Count Wilhelm Moritz of Solms-Braunfels in 1704. The authentic tavern » Forsthaus Tiergarten also dates back to this time. Today it´s a nice Café-Bistro – and a perfect place for celebrations.

The entrance to the park is next to the Forsthaus. Hiking trails lead you through varied and natural terrain with mature trees. A dammed pond offers a habitat for kingfishers, dippers and little grebes.

 


The Tiergarten is open daily, free admission:-)
