Anholter Schweiz Biotope Wildlife Park

At the westernmost tip of the Münsterland, on the border to the Netherlands and the Lower Rhine, lies the biotope wildlife park Anholter Schweiz in Isselburg - near the moated castle of Anholt. This excursion destination, which is also popular with cyclists, owes its existence to Prince Leopold zu Salm-Salm.

A park landscape with around 50 animal species and magnificent scenery

The prince had a lake dug out of the forest and mounds of earth built on its shores. An island was created in the middle of the lake, on which a two-storey chalet delivered from Switzerland was placed: today's Swiss cottage. In addition to this pretty house, you will find seven different typical Lower Rhine and Münster landscape paintings in the park landscape.

Along 6 kilometres of easily accessible paths (also for wheelchair users), this wildlife park is home to around 50 species of native animals in species-appropriate husbandry and in their natural environment. It is a unique destination for school trips, children's birthday parties, senior citizens' outings and bicycle tours, as guided tours for groups of 10 or more are also offered here.

Wolves, lynxes, reindeer and bison are the most prominent inhabitants of the park, which is also home to numerous bird species. Feedings take place daily at various enclosures in the wildlife park. If you want to help out, you can also become an "animal keeper for a day". Various events such as the falcon show or forest park night round off the experience in the wildlife park.
