Aurach Wildlife Park

The game enclosure near Kitzbühel is the largest of Tyrol, comprising a surface of about 40 hectares

In Aurach, at 1,080 m a.s.l., there is the "Wildpark Aurach”, a game enclosure comprising about 200 animals. This leisure facility was established in 1972 by Dr. Heinrich Prinz Reuss on the area of the Branderhof, a farm that dates back to 1723. Above all Alpine animals are hosted by the game reserve: red deer, lynx, wild boars, marmots, wild oats, pheasant, deer and other animals can be observed. In addition, there are also some exotic animals such as Barbary macaque, kangaroos, llamas and yaks. The game reserve is surrounded by the fairytale scenery of the Kitzbühel Alps.

To make a visit even more interesting for the little ones, there are also animals that can be touched. As the area is surrounded by a 2 m high fence, humans and animals can get in close contact. The highlight is of course the feeding of the animals, taking place at 2.30 pm, except in the rutting season in autumn. To ensure that animals are treated in a respectful way, the Wildlife Park is a member of the Austrian Association of Game Reserves.

Much has happened in the last years: The "Streichstadl", a petting zoo with rabbits, donkeys, goats, llamas and sheep was inaugurated. Furthermore, "Willi, the feral pig" offers new games and exercise in skill stations for kids, and the Café Restaurant Branderhofstube is ideal for completing a visit with a tasty coffee or a snack. Recently, the renovation of the Lynx House and the opening of the 50 sqm large outdoor enclosure of the feral cats have been completed, and a training and information space has been added. Short leashes are compulsory for dogs.
