  • Enough activities to do with a toddler, including a quick lunch, practical toilet facilities, professional staff, pre and post lunch.

  • We were going to the animal park here and decided to get lunch. Took a minute to be seated but staff were friendly enough. Menu was bison heavy and we decided we’d just get three burgers with fries...

  • A wonderful park for those who love bears. The park has other animals too, but not many - two wolves, some bisons, some goats and lamas. But the bears are the stars of the show. There are two small cubs with their mum in one enclosure (a big space that is set in the wilderness of the Jura National park), then there are two other bears in the second enclosure - one is a real fun as he likes to stand on the tree stump to observe the surroundings - a poser and an explorer. His compatriot, the second bear int he enclosure is more of a quiet creature, just lying leisurely on the grass. The third enclosure has only one bear - a restless soul, or perhaps a stressed one as he walks up an down the same path, looking somewhat unhappy. The last enclosure has a bear that likes to hide and observe people from the safety of his 'nest' up on the slope of a small mountain. All you can see is his face. The wolves are supposed to be in the same enclosure but they were nowhere to be seen during out visit. The bisons were also absent, maybe went for a long walk to a different pasture. The area is big and the enclosures are connected between each other with wooden bridges so the visitors can observe the bears from a safe distance but close enough to admire them. Lamas and goats are in a completely separate area near the restaurant. The restaurant serves good lunches, mostly meaty ones, so vegetarians will find it difficult to choose anything edible. There are many dishes with bison meat. The interior of the restaurant is a Swiss rustic one and the personnel is friendly and speak English.
  • I've visited this park twice and I really like it! It's not huge, but I feel like the smaller size means the animals receive better care and attention. It's always nice to watch the bears having a snack. There's also a petting zoo across the road with a collection of adorable goats which you can feed. A great place to bring kids to in summer!
