It was about time for us to see some cute fluffy things, hehe. Hey, so it’s been at least a month since we shared with you the cute and fluffy things. Hochwildschutzpark hunsrück was a place we found on one of our TripAdvisor finds; we didn’t know what to expect as it was the middle of February and the offseason.
We only had the sat-nav in the car for directions as neither of us can use our phones in Germany, and I tell you the navigation system was not having any of it, we drove around and around in circles but eventually found our way using the very few street signs we could find.
We arrived, and I have to be honest it looked a lot like a bit of a ghost town, but after banging on the window a few times, we eventually got let in.
Unfortunately, our experiences didn’t get too much better, as we made our way around half the enclosures were empty, it became increasingly apparent to us that this place has a very seasonal directed park.
The animals we did get to see were the ones that could cope with the harsh almost freezing temperatures outside. We sore a brown bear, deer, donkeys, lynx, bison and wolves.
I don’t want to be too cynical because I did get to see a brown bear close up, which was a first for me. The park has its perks, it’s a charming walk, especially when you find the deer walking around and you can walk your dog among them, as long as they’re on a lead though.
We spent around three hours walking around, but I don’t think it was worth the entrance fee. I can see that during the summer months in its full glory, it would be amazing, but I wouldn’t recommend it offseason.
