Neanderthal Wildpark (European Bison sanctuary) May 10, 2011
Me and a friend (who is also in travbuddy: juan-milagroso) decided to have a photo-op. We packed our cameras and headed into neanderthal valley, where a wildpark and animal sanctuary is located.
neanderthal is famous because of the discovery of the neanderthal man who was found there and the neanderthal museum, but other than that, another attraction is located there called: wildgehege neandertal, a nature protected area frequented by the people from düsseldorf and other surrounding areas for walks and hikes in the nature.
the wildpark has 3 large animal species - the tarpan, the aurochs (which by the way are "extinct" but succesfully bred genetically in germany) and the endangered european bison which is the largest specie in the park. In the park the river düssel flows for which the name of düsseldorf came from.
it was too hot, so the animals are either in their stables or in the shades and difficult to take pics of them. But nevertheless we had fun and you can walk the park around 2 hours and around 4-5 kilometers. It is recommended for nature lovers and photo addicts like me!
the park and neanderthal valley are located 20 mins away from düsseldorf center and can be accessed by the sbahn.
