Easy Hike at Kaiserslautern Wildpark with Kaiserslautern and Beyond



If you missed it, Kaiserslautern and Beyond is holding a series of hikes this month. This particular one was at the Kaiserslautern Wildpark and was so much fun!



What is a Wildpark? Consider it like an outdoor zoo. We walked through the forest and by various fenced in enclosures and saw all kinds of animals! My favorite of course was the baby cows (unsure what exact kind). Such sweet cuties!



There are signs not to feed the wildlife along the fences. However, some of the children grabbed nearby local vegetation and the cows seemed to love it! I'm hoping the sign only refers to people who bring human food like bread to feed the animals. Otherwise... Whoops... We didn't see the sign on this enclosure untill we were walking away.



Along the way you can see signs pointing out the different types of local vegetation. If you're a plant lover like me, be sure to be on the lookout!



It's hot out right now, so there were some empty enclosures with the animals seeking shade to escape the heat. However, we were able to see some of the wildlife such as this cute little rabbit and some boars! I actually haven't seen a boar since moving here to Germany, so I was excited to see what they look like.



Overall, I would recommend this park for children and adults alike. The kids loved it, but I'm not going to lie, I was patiently waiting for the children to be done so I could get in there and say hi to the animals myself! Another fun adventure with Kaiserslautern and Beyond and I can't wait for the next one!


Note:

  • There is loose gravel and some uphill sections. It wasn't impossible with a stroller (many did bring their strollers), it however did seem a little difficult at times.

  • Parking is easy and there are numerous spots in front of the entrance to the park and also a little bit further up the road on the side.


Looking for other Wildparks in the area? Here's a list in order from those that are closest to those further away. Links are from Google Maps.




Across the street is Gasthaus & Biergarten Quack Am Wildpark where we stopped for lunch afterwards. Decent generic German food. No complaints here!




Thank you for your support.

Happy adventures!
