Bärenpfad themed trail

The Bärenpfad, an exciting walking trail for people of all ages, connects Grafenau to the animal enclosures in the Bavarian Forest National Park.

On this roughly 15-kilometre walking trail, which is divided into 5 stages, nature lovers can explore the world from the point of view of two small bear cubs. Walkers accompany these bears from birth until the point they separate from their mother.

In between, visitors can find out lots of interesting facts about the life and habits of these gentle giants.

You can smell some bear scents at a fragrance station, play “bear paparazzi” with a telescope and even enjoy a bear-themed picnic station on the way to seeing the real bears which live in the animal enclosures in Neuschönau.
