Intro

At the Nature Park Bruderhaus you can look at stags in the wild instead of seeing them in a painting on the livingroom wall. About 80 animals live here in large enclosures that are adapted to their needs.

Among the animals, there are rare deer, lynxes, wild boars, European bison, and the famed Przewalski horses. This original horse is considered the legitimate ancestor of today's domestic horse and was first found in Mongolia in 1882. Since 1970, the animal is considered to be extinct, at least in its wild and free form. Thanks to a European breeding program, the species could be preserved in zoos. The program has been so successful that in 1990, the animals have been re-released in their original habitat, the Gobi desert, in the hope that they will continue breeding on their own. (Further information on www.takhi.org).

Mt. Eschenberg is home to two didactic trails, one dedicated to forestry, the other to geology. On this mountain you will also find a trail suitable for children, a Luchs resting place, a large playground for children in the pre-Kindergarten age in the center of the park as well as a restaurant. There is something for everybody.

Getting there:
The Nature Park Bruderhaus is situated in the middle of the forest on the Eschenberg. Take bus number No. 4 to the Breite stop and from there, walk for about 30 minutes on well-marked trails. By car, take highway A1 to the exit marked Toess via Breite - Waldheim - Eschenberg.
