Deer Farm Assmannshausen Reviews
Jun 18, 2007
I'm not sure why there is a large reserve containing a herd of deer at the top of the cable car down to Assmanshausen - but there is.
A large wooded field is fenced in with a patch circumnavigating it and wihin it live a load of deer. They may of course be being farmed for the nearby restaurant and hotel but as there's no signs to explain what's going on it's best not to think about it if you're an animal lover.
The deer are very tame so if you're young or young at heart and offer them food they will happily trot up and eat what's offered from out of your fingers.
To aid this there are food dispensers at regular intervals around the fence where you can pay a couple of Euro for a box of deer food. The deer are wise to this and their ears prick up when they hear the coins rattling and come scurrying over to see what they can snaffle down.
Kids will adore it.
