Petting Farm

Kids take responsibility for donkeys, sheep, goats and many other animals and can ride on them, pet them or simply play with them. They bake cakes together, explore the surrounding forest or together make a camp fire.

Programs during holidays around the town and in the nearby “Waldheim” are filled with fun, games and of course excitement. A great experience for kids and an ideal alternative for working parents during holidays.
