The Dandelion Path
A treasure hunt in the Schönerlinder Ponds
The circuit stretches for 4 km through the former ponds and old irrigation field, which have created a space for some very unique nature. It’s a place where water buffalo and wild horses graze, where you can enjoy the ‘hedge adventure’, climb a lookout tower, and observe water birds and bees. You can even go on a treasure hunt along our Dandelion Path, where the ‘Treasure of Barnim Nature Park’ is hidden as a geocaching point. Prepare to be surprised!
Wildpark Schorfheide - Truly wild!
For the zoologists amongst you, we also recommend an excursion to the wildlife park in Schorfheide, where you can see elk, bison, deer, lynx, wolves and many other animals. A petting enclosure, adventure playground and good food make the day a real experience! Attend demonstration feeds or werewolf nights. The wild life park is a largely wheelchair-accessible establishment.
Eberswalde zoo - For a roaring good time!
A visit to this fantastic zoo in Eberswalde is an absolute must – a compact, unique attraction housing 1,500 animals from five continents. You can get up close with lions, tigers, monkeys, penguins and kangaroos. And if the parents get tired, you can romp around in five adventure playgrounds!
The zoo is a wheelchair-accessible facility.
Germendorf zoo, amusement park & dinosaur park - Truly fascinating!
Get set to explore a dinosaur park, 650 species of animal, a monkey island, a petting zoo, a whole lot of sporting and adventure options, and even a bathing lake. That’s one way to spend a day off! The site of a former gravel pit is now a pure paradise for kids and families!
