Get up close with animals

There are many opportunities in the Bergisches Land to get up close with animals, to pet them, feed them or simply to observe them in their living environment with us. It can be very soothing to go for a walk with alpacas. An animal excursion is a wonderful experience for young and old.

“Visitors can feed our monkeys in their open-air enclosure. But be careful - they are very curious.”

Ludger Schmidt, Managing Director of the Monkey and Bird Park Reichshof-Eckenhagen
