Open air zoological park

Animals wander in wide open spaces. You can come close or watch from far away. Long walk from the entrance, some slight inclines.

I went where with my grandmother while I was staying in German. It was free. I visited this the same day I visited the Cologne Dom and Cologne zoo. I missed my stop on the subway in Cologne from the zoo to main station but I was fortunate because it pulled out of the city and became a regular train... More

The park is not very big, but you can still easily spend a few hours walking around there. There are a few trails going through the woods, with many interesting sights along them. There are 2 large enclosures with deer and wild boars, and you can feed them through the fence. They come very close to you, all you have... More

We live a few Km from here and enjoy taking the kids to watch the pigs and deer. There's a good kids playground and, when it's dry and warm, a little wooden house where you can get a Pizza and a beer. The main restaurant is closed right now though. The nature walk is nice but not exactly thrilling for... More

If you are looking for a place to go to on a Sunday (when everything is closed), Wildpark Venusberg is a great choice! The entrance is free but you can buy food to feed the animals and help sustain the park. There are not much animals there but they are really really sweet! There is a playground for children and...

Everything shuts down on Bonn on Sundays and public holidays so I decided to head to the Wildpark when I was in Bonn for work over a public holiday. It's about a 40 min bus ride (bus 603) from the Bonn Hbf. Get off at the last stop (Waldau). There is a large wooden playground which young children will probably... More

We visited Wildpark Venusberg on a day trip to Bonn in December 2011 for the Christmas markets and wanted something to do especially for our 21 month old daughter. There is a regular bus from Bonn town centre and it took about 30 minutes to get to the park. There is a cafe beside the bus stop and we had... More
