The most beautiful meeting place for people and animals

Rheine Nature Zoo

The motto at Rheine Nature Zoo could be "Right in the middle of things instead of just being there". Experiencing animals up close, raising awareness for the need to protect species and the environment, and at the same time creating a home for the animals that is as close to nature as possible. This is the motto of Rheine Nature Zoo.

Experiencing animals, understanding nature - Rheine Nature Zoo makes it possible

Around 1000 animals in 100 species live in Rheine Nature Zoo and there are many small and big stars among them. Birds find ideal conditions in the stork reserve and wading birds also feel particularly at home in the nature zoo. In the monkey forest you can come into direct contact with the animals and a little further on you can observe seals even under water. The new bear enclosure for the sloth bears, who share their home with the golden jackals, is particularly beautiful. Of course, there are many other animals such as llamas, coatis, camels, zebras, calicoes, and and and.... The best way to find out for yourself is to visit.

Small hands and big eyes

What could be more exciting than experiencing animals up close? The Nature Zoo in Rheine is a meeting place for people and animals. Understanding nature, respecting animals and their behaviour, understanding connections between animals and their environment - the nature zoo is a "school for life". Under the microscope, water fleas become as huge as elephants, the smallest living creatures grow into big stars. Take a walk on the berry trail or conquer the forest adventure path.

From mid-March to mid-October, the information feedings will not only satisfy visitors' hunger, but also their thirst for knowledge. On Sundays and public holidays, as well as every day during the summer holidays, the keepers explain the background to the life and care of the zoo's inhabitants.

The storks of Rheine

As soon as it gets warmer in March, 100 pairs of white storks breed at and around the nature zoo until August. The storks of what is probably Germany's largest colony not only move around the nature zoo, but also on the surrounding meadows of the Salinenpark.

The elegant birds glide majestically above your heads between Bentlage Abbey and the Nature Zoo and populate the green spaces in a relaxed manner. A truly unique experience.

Kloster Bentlage (Rheine): prINT - the Münsterland Festival's graphics project Printmaking exhibition

From the idea to the sketch on paper, transferred to a printing block made of wood, metal, cardboard, linoleum or stone, altered in the etching bath by aggressive acid, deepened by multi-layered colour applications or expanded in combination with collages - printmaking was and is an exciting field.

The prINT printmaking project as part of the Münsterland Festival once again gives two female artists and two male artists from the guest country Austria (all currently living in Vienna) the chance to present their printmaking to interested people with their exhibitions in the barn at Kloster Bentlage and at FARB.

In addition to works that have been created in the past years, the exhibition will also show copies fresh off the presses that the artists produce during their two-week working stay at the beginning of September in the workshops of the Druckvereinigung am Kloster Bentlage.

Kloster Bentlage (Rheine): Anatomy of Desire I Anatomy of Embarrassment Dance performance by Marie Steiner & Alexandra Rauh
24.10.2021, 17:00 24.10.2021, 20:00

Organiser: Münsterland Festival

In choreographed images between dance and performance, the performers Lena Schattenberg and Charlotte Petersen from the Münster-based MNEME kollektiv present "Anatomie der Sehnsucht" I "Anatomie der Peinlichkeit" by Marie Steiner (Vienna) and Alexandra Rauh at the Münsterland Festival, a Münsterland-Austrian production: the audience can expect a double evening that focuses on emotions and gets to the bottom of their nature.

"Anatomy of Longing" shows basic, human drives and embodies the feeling of longing in an abstract and pictorial choreography as a kind of observable longing creature. The bodies of the two dancers are closely connected and make the inner body of longing recognisable from the outside. The piece is accompanied live by the Iranian-Austrian composer and clarinettist Mona Mathbou Riahi, who creates an atmospheric sound space that animates and interacts with the longing being.

In contrast, "Anatomy of Embarrassment" deals with everyday changes and disruptions in social interactions. The episode is dedicated to the limits of shame and shamelessness and offers the audience a multi-layered associative surface of a deconstructed embarrassment via body, language, video and sound.

The piece is a co-production with the Tafelhalle Nuremberg. Supported by the NATIONAL PERFORMANCE NETWORK guest performance funding dance, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, as well as the Ministries of Culture and the Arts of the Länder.
