Heimat-Tierpark Olderdissen (Olderdissen Animal Park)
Olderdissen houses around 450 animals of 100 indigenous species, including many protected varieties.
This well-loved animal park, established from a fawn nursery run by the town’s forester and opened in 1930, nestles in the attractive landscape of the Teutoburg Forest. More than 450 animals of 100 indigenous species can be observed on 15 hectares, with ponds, meadows and forests. Excellent animal husbandry has facilitated the breeding of rare and endangered species. A favourite destination for all the family, the animal park is free of charge and open all year round, providing a major attraction with its brown bear enclosure.
