Animal South Tyrol

There is hardly anything that attracts the attention of kids more than animals, whether they are in zoos, on the farm or in deer-parks.

South Tyrol has not got a zoo, but several wild parks and some “animal” experiences that are ideal for a family holiday. Experiencing animals from close quarters is a great adventure. In South Tyrol you can for instance experience donkey and lama trekking, or visit Castel Tirolo with its famous Bird Care Centre.

Moreover there are plenty of horse riding stables, making you discover South Tyrol from the horseback. The docile haflinger horses are ideal horse breeds and for making a horseback ride together with your beloved ones. Another occasion to experience animals is the return of the cattle from the Alpine pastures in autumn, an event in which you can admire highly adorned cows. When the cattle comes back from the Alpine pastures, there is always a huge celebration in South Tyrol.
