At the heart of the Weinviertel, nestled in amongst the picturesque oak forests of the Leiser Berge country park, Ernstbrunn Wildlife Park offers exciting entertainment for the whole family.

Different species of deer and mouflons cross visitor paths in accessible enclosures, chamois and ibexes scramble along the stony crags, wild boards wallow in mud and dig for acorns.

Not only can you hear wolfs howling from here, you can also take a glimpse at the research being conducted in the Wolf Science Center and as part of a diverse tour programme, discover just what these intelligent animals are capable of. Details: www.wolfscience.at

Once you have had your fill of learning, children can let off steam in the wonderful playground with a thrilling wooden fort or feed the small sheep and goats, while parents can refresh themselves with hot and cold dishes from the “Hexenhütte” kiosk at the Ziegelofenteich pond.

The impressive Ernstbrunn castle towers over the wildlife park. You are invited to explore the castle's picturesque park with 60 ha of landscaped gardens.

Ernstbrunn Wildlife Park is one of the “ARGE Top Animal Parks”, a collaboration of several Austrian wildlife parks that focuses on the well-being of animals and visitors. A quality seal has been introduced as part of this. A prerequisite to attaining this quality seal is the voluntary commitment to consistently improve in accordance with zoological and tourist criteria, which is also regularly audited by independent experts.

The entry ticket to the wildlife park also includes the WSC (excludes guided tours!).
Entry for dogs is about EUR 1.00.

Guided tours last approx. 1.5 hours and can be booked for groups of 10 or more or for school and primary school groups.
