The Hochwildpark Rheinland wouldn’t be complete without wild boars, of course. Because although they are relatively widespread in native deciduous and mixed woodlands, you don’t get to see them that often in the wild. This is due on the one hand to the fact that wild boars are primarily nocturnal, and on the other, that they aren’t used to people. Because our animals have been living with us for many years, they have, to a certain extent, lost their natural timidity with respect to humans – especially when there’s something to eat on offer! From our observation platform, you can feed the animals with food from the food dispensers provided. The viewing platform also gives you the chance to observe the distinctive social behaviour of the animals from a safe distance.
Something else to note about the wild boar enclosure: Dogs are forbidden in this section of the park. As welcome as dogs generally are in the park, the risk of provoking attacks or serious confrontations is too great in the wild boar enclosure.
