Located on the northern edge of the Segeberger Forest between the towns of Bad Bramstedt and Bad Segeberg, the Eekholt Wildlife Park is home to around 100 different species of native wildlife. It showcases the animals in their natural habitats while raising awareness about sustainability in nature.
The Eekholt Wildlife Park was founded in 1970 and is still privately run to this day. It was created to convey awareness about the ecological interdependence of plants, animals and humans, with diagrams and exhibits illustrating the role each plant or animal plays in maintaining the ecological balance.
Follow the walking trails that lead through wetlands, bogs, coniferous and deciduous wooded forests that provide a habitat for more than 700 animals at the Eekholt Wildlife Park. Each of the various ecosystems represents its typical plant life, insects, birds and mammals, with the Osterau creek winding through the park.
