Anholter Schweiz Game Park

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

A park landscape with 40 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. One finds seven different typical Lower Rhine and Münsterland landscapes in this park landscape.

Along 6 kilometres of easily accessible paths (also for wheelchair users), this wildlife park houses 40 species of native animals in species-appropriate husbandry and in their natural environment. A unique destination for school trips, senior citizens' excursions and bicycle tours.

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".
