Zoo Altenfelden and hunting culture museum

Altenfelden, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • Suitable for kids (all ages)

Altenfelden animal park and "cultum venandi" hunting culture museum in the Bohemian Forest holiday region.

No two days are the same at Altenfelden Zoo - over 1000 animals of more than 200 species make sure of that. With this large number and an area of 80 hectares, it is the largest private zoo in Austria. Exotic animals feel just as at home in the Mühlviertel as old domestic and farm animal breeds.

A special experience at the zoo is the live cheetah feeding, which takes place daily at 15:00 from 1 May to 31 October. During the feeding you can also learn lots of interesting facts about the fastest land predators in the world.


Hunting culture museum "cultum venandi"

Opened in 2019, the "cultum venandi" hunting culture museum in the Tierpark centre aims to give visitors an understanding of the history, culture and tradition of hunting. Over 80 exhibits and information boards can be viewed in the museum: The development of hunting from the Stone Age to the present day can be read about, as well as hunting laws and facts about hunting. Curious trophies and rare artefacts, including a deer hunter from Emperor Franz Joseph, old and new hunting weapons are also on display. Everything to do with falconry, the language of hunting and the importance of hunting dogs has also found its place in the new museum. One highlight is a true-to-life replica of a local landscape with many animal specimens. Or you can follow in the footsteps of myths and legends, learn more about the gods of hunting and immerse yourself in a world of fables.


Owl trail with Semita Noctua owl nature trail

The new "Semita Noctua" owl trail with educational trail was opened in October 2019. The aim is to familiarise visitors and school groups in particular with the life of native owl species using information boards. The owl trail also marks the start of the species conservation programme "Reintroduction of the Ural owl in Austria".

Wonderfully walkable

See and hike: Nestled in the hills of the Upper Mühlviertel, the area is incredibly scenic. There are two different hiking trails. The shorter route takes about 2 hours and is designed so that you pass all the animals. It is easily accessible even with a pushchair and dogs are also allowed on a lead. For hiking enthusiasts, there is a longer circular trail with a walking time of 4 to 5 hours. This leads through a gate into the small Mühltal valley and to the Rabenstein, a rock formation that is unrivalled. There is also the option of taking a slow train from the centre to the car park.

Children's attractions - mega playground

The playground area is particularly large and eventful. It is located in the centre of the site. Parents can keep an eye on their offspring near the large beer garden or buffet. Right next to it, young children can ride ponies.
