Gustav Mahler game reserve
Deer, lynxes, eagle owls and many more animals can be admired in the game reserve of Dobbiaco.
Very special “animal“ encounters, that’s what the Gustav Mahler game reserve in Dobbiaco, strictly speaking in Carbonin Vecchia, brings along. In a spacious area, there is a huge variety of animals that can be admired: feral pigs, lynxes, deer, mouflons, buzzards, domestic pigs, common pheasants and eagle owls make not only children’s hearts leap for joy in a visit.
Bambi walks across the fresh snow, chicken running all over the area, feral pigs welter in the mud, a visit won’t bore you at all. The game reserve is completed by a little children’s playground with slides and see-saws. And a detail for mum and dad: directly in the game reserve, there is the composer’s cottage of Gustav Mahler, the famous composer who spent his summer holidays in Dobbiaco several times. Among other re-known pieces, also the earth song was created in this little cottage.
A recommendation: Right at the entrance of the park, you can purchase some fodder for the animals. Isn’t it a great feeling when the four-legged friends eat from the palm of your hand?!
